Everything Else

Pairing Wine with Food

Back in December Romsey & District u3a wine group celebrated in style with a selection of six wines and an assortment of finger foods.

22 of our 25 members joined together at our new venue, The Abbey Rooms, obviously taking all the precautions we could in our present situation.

We started with a toast of Cremant de Limoux a sparkling wine produced in the same style of champagne but a lot less expensive.

It was now we partnered food with our wines, Pazzia Primitivo an Italian red and a Spanish red by the name of The Guv’nor, these served with finger foods of sausage rolls, mini sausages and veg tarts, which all went down extremely well.

This was then followed by Proffitta rolls and a very enjoyable dessert wine Moscatel and then to go with the Mince Pies an Austrian Gruner Veltliner.

One course still to go and with this we are finishing with a Tawny Port and an assortment of cheese’s.
Throughout the evening we had an ongoing Christmas themed quiz interspersed between the eating and drinking.

To finish the evening we had a lucky dip with each member pulling out a name and another a prize, with all members receiving a gift to take home.

We usually finish our Christmas evening with the group being involved in singing with actions, The Twelve Days of Christmas, but unfortunately we had run out of time.

A vote of thanks was greeted by all members after a very enjoyable evening.

January will be our next tasting of Rhone Valley Wines!
