Event Details

Our next Guided Wine Tasting Adventure of 2017 is Understanding the World of White Wine on Friday May 12th in La Voûte at the Angleterre & Résidence in Ouchy, Lausanne (see directions below). Doors open at 7.00 pm and the 1½ hour expert guided tasting begins at 7.30pmThese wine tasting events are a perfect opportunity to discover new wines, meet other wine lovers and make new friends.

  • Why is white wine white (or is it more yellow, amber or golden)?
  • What are the main white grape varieties and how do they differ in aroma and flavour?
  • Which are the most important white wine producing regions & countries in the world?

This wine tasting adventure takes the form of an introduction to the basics of white wine. It is the perfect opportunity to find out the answers to these questions (and more) and understand a little better all you need to know about the world of white wine.

To help our understanding we will try eight of the most important white grape varieties by tasting the following 10 white wines :

  • Chardonnay (France & Argentina)
  • Sauvignon Blanc (France & New Zealand)
  • Pinot Grigio (Italy)
  • Riesling (Germany)
  • Chenin Blanc (France)
  • Gewurztraminer (France)
  • Semillon (South Africa)
  • Viognier (USA)

Learn more about each of the wines and find out which wines make the best match for which foods. We also provide a selection of charcuterie and cheeses for your enjoyment.

Places are limited so we advise you to book now to avoid disappointment. Please feel free to forward this invitation to any friends who also appreciate wine and want to discover and learn more in the world of wine.

We look forward to seeing you there.
