ARNY Drinks for Charity
ARNY members are drawn from all walks of life, backgrounds and professions and, fortunately for those attending this week's event, our Social Secretary and tutor, Jeff Terry, is the manager of the York branch of Majestic Wines.
For a £5 donation each which went to Macmillan Cancer Support, Majestic's chosen charity, 12 members of ARNY and their partners attended a private tasting at the shop in York.
Jeff selected a variety of white and red wines, Prosecco and Champagne to broaden our wine tasting experience and told us about the history and popularity of each grape. He also selected complementary foods to demonstrate the effect on our palate and how the flavours change with different wines.
Everyone in the group learnt something and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening before adjourning to discuss their new found knowledge in York City Centre.
ARNY run regular social events and the next one is the Christmas party on 9th December at Rustique in York. Please let Jeff now if you haven't already put your name down.
