Fun with Wine Outing

Thanks to our group leader, Roger CRAPPER, for organising an excellent day out to WOODCHESTER vineyard near Stroud. After an uneventful first part of the journey by mini coach we arrived at rather narrow twisting approach roads ……. and that’s where the fun started! Thanks to our excellent driver Martin, we finally arrived safely and certainly enjoyed our welcome with a glass of sparkling wine.After a short talk about the vineyard we toured the vineyard and winery and we all learnt something new about the vines and winemaking …. well it is u3a so we needed to learn something!We then continued with the wine tasting and enjoyed our fish & chip lunch. We have visited vineyards before but we all thought that was our best visit by far, it may have had something to do with the number of wines sampled. Many of the group “rested their eyes” on the return journey ……. Well done and many thanks to Roger. Martin
