Event description

Description

Not so long ago, the idea of labelling wines by their grape variety was considered inadequate, and many winemakers in Burgundy today will still insist that they are not making pinot noir, they are making burgundy. Since the 1990s, us Brits have been obsessed with grape varieties – from cabernet sauvignon and merlot to chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. Yet many of the world's greatest wines are blends that result in more than the sum of their parts. Tonight's tasting embraces everything from non-vintage Champagne to classic French, Spanish and Italian blends from Bordeaux, Rioja and Tuscany, with delicious detours to sherry, Sauternes and more along the way.

Unless otherwise stated in the tasting description above, each tasting features 8-10 wines accompanied by quality bread, cheeses and charcuterie, and lasts approximately two hours. Due to the communal nature of the event and lack of kitchen facilities, we regret we cannot cater for dietary requirements.
