Wine Appreciation Group 2 – Garden Party
We met for our annual garden party at the beginning of August, in
the beautiful garden of our leader’s house in Southborough. Being
of an older vintage than the wines we sampled, staggered (no pun
intended) arrivals and social distancing in Julie’s large garden
enabled us to have a very convivial afternoon. Catching up with
friends and hearing all their news, lifted everyone’s spirits.
All brought something for the buffet and the food was
complemented by delicious wines from the Iberian Peninsula and
New Zealand. A convivial time was had by all.
