Event description

Description

Oak can sometimes be divisive and when it is done wrong it can throw the balance of a wine completely. But for wines that have the ripeness and concentration to carry it off, the addition of toast and vanilla that oak brings can add dimensions of opulence, richness and complexity that are unequalled. It takes a careful hand, for the choices facing a winemaker when the ybuy their barrels are as multifarious as when they harvest their grapes, with the origin of the oak, the level of toasting and the curing all playing a decisive role. From the harmonious power and precision of white Burgundy to the sheer guts of St Emilion, oak is an essential component in many classic wines, but in this tasting we will also take in the wines of skilled producers from Santorini to Bulgaria to explore oak-aged wine in all its diversity.

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.
