The tradition of a Christmas get together for the Wine Appreciation Groups continued this year at the usual venue of Rickard’s Hall in Edenbridge. However, this time there were not just 3 groups but 4. The newly formed group 4, still only on their third meeting, entered into the Christmas winos ‘spirit’ with enthusiasm and good cheer.
This year the theme was ‘New World Wines’. Group 3, whose turn it was to organise the event, opened with a dramatic rendition of a U3A ‘Haka’. Clearly, they were representing New Zealand and came dressed in the traditional black, complete with fake tattoos, head bands and masks. Very effective in subduing their somewhat exuberant audience! We were then treated to Some New Zealand Wines and delicious food followed by a further U3A version of ‘Peggy Sue’.
