The Wine Appreciation Groups
We have three wine appreciation groups, each led by Karen Coulston.
- Wine Appreciation – Introduction: some terms only; sometimes weekly, sometimes fortnightly. They discuss different wine styles and how they are made plus what you taste and smell in wine and what ‘balance’ means in quality wine.
- Wine and Food Lunch Group: monthly and only open to those who have previously done the Wine Appreciation course. This group centres on wine and food matching around the lunch table.
- Wine Tour Group: monthly and only open to those who have previously done the Wine Appreciation course. This is a winery tour group, where they take a community bus to different wine regions, usually making a cultural or environmental visit before visiting two wineries for lunch and wine tastings.
In August 2018, the Wine Appreciation group gathered at Karen Coulston’s house in Yarrambat to bottle some wine that they had previously made. Watch a 5 minute video of the day.
