Wine tasting

Wednesday 18 May
Time: 5.30 pm

Venue: Social area, U3AC

Wines of Spring – A Lighter shade of Pale.
Wine lover, rock musician and author, Steve Hovington of Cambridge Wine Academy will guide us through an educational tour and tasting of wines which are perfect for sharing over a picnic in the park or watching the sun set through the jubilee anniversary. Refreshing white wines and crisp, pale rosés on hand in the fridge become the order of the day alongside fruity, lighter red wines that even work slightly chilled. It should definitely put a spring in your step.
