Our January meeting was the first with the new year’s theme of “favourite wines” – exploring styles of wines made in Western Europe. It was also our debut as group leaders, along with a change of venue. The group enjoyed a selection of premium wines from the Beaujolais region of France – a Beaujolais Villages followed by 3 Crus. We were amazed by how many different flavours could come from one grape variety grown over an area of only 15 miles by 8. Our favourite was the Cru from Fleurie. Many thanks to John for choosing the wines. Although the group is currently at capacity we would welcome the chance to help a new group get established so if you are interested in learning more about wine do get in touch.
