Maldon U3A

Wine Groups

Groups One & Two
Group co-ordinator: Graham Boswell
Time: Group 1 on the 1st Wenesday each month.
          Group 2 on the 4th Wednesday each month.
Place: Members' houses.

Both groups have had another interesting and enjoyable year.

Members from both groups now take it in turns at our monthly meetings to do a presentation. These have been wide ranging and very varied, but always interesting and informative, and of course, with plenty of tasting. We look forward to more of the same in the coming year.

Unfortunately, as for the past few years, both groups remain full.

Wine Group Three
Group co-ordinators: Mary Burd and Paul Costa
Time: 4th Thursday each month.
Place: Members' houses.

This group was formed in 2013. Members take it in turns to host and do a presentation on wines of their choice. The group has not changed its membership over the last year and is currently at maximum capacity as we meet in membersí houses and are therefore limited with space!

During 2017 apart from our monthly meetings we attended some wine tastings at Osea View. Our summer event was another bring and share lunch and this year we celebrated Christmas with a meal at Il Camino in Maldon. Members of our group also joined a local wine group and holidayed in the Bordeaux region of France.

Wine Group Four
Group co-ordinator: Ann Goody
Time: 4th Tuesday each month at 7:30pm.
Place: Members' houses.

This wine group started in mid-2014 due to demand that could not be satisfied by the other three wine groups. However, it too is nearly full. We take a less formal approach than the first three groups. We meet in membersí houses and the host(s) decides what form the meeting will take. Suffice to say we drink, and talk about, a lot of wine; an endlessly fascinating subject worthy of serious study.
