The Wine Appreciation Group

Leader:  Annie Scotney - wine@ashbyu3a.co.uk -


The objective of the group is to widen the members’ experience of wines and all matters pertaining to wines. Annie Scotney has agreed to be the initial leader of the group and to coordinate meetings. The group began by simply gathering together to discuss personal favourite wines, bringing a bottle with them to provide a small taste. We are currently tasting a choice of wines bought by a different member each month. Those present at the tasting share the cost.

If you are interested in joining us please contact Annie at wine@ashbyu3a.co.uk.

We currently meet on the third Wednesday of the month at 7pm.

Future programme

Wed 20th Mar7:00 pmAnnie's houseKen is providing a selection of Portuguese reds.


Sorry to have had to cancel January's session but I discovered a large patch of black mold behind my book cases. I am hoping everything will be under control by next month but keep your eyes open for emails giving updates.

In February we shall be tasting a selection of wines (hopefully scoring 10) as recommended in 'The Best Wines in the Supermarkets 2024' by Ned Halley.

If you want to come and join us please contact me.
