Event description

Description

Join us for a sunset wine-tasting cruise with full buffet dinner and drinks included, in the delightful environment of Seafin. Enjoy learning in the company of Cecile Bergart, WSET-certified Sommelier and Proprietor of the Hampshire Wine School to taste wine like a professional. Discover new favourites and learn more about the wines you already love.

This event is £95 per person. We will help you to squeeze just a drop more enjoyment out of every glass of wine – cheers!

In addition to an evening cruise on Seafin with full buffet dinner and drinks, the price includes wine-tasting of a minimum of six wines with a professional sommelier to teach you a little more about the wines you are sipping.

Join us aboard Seafin as we taste wines from the very best vineyards in France. We will taste our way around the major wine regions of France - Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Loire Valley, the Rhone Valley, Alsace, Languedoc & Roussillon - and sample the fascinating range and variety of delicious wines which they produce.

Starting in the Loire with lively aromatic Sauvignon Blanc, we'll head northeast to the sunniest place in France (yes Alsace!) where we'll taste some excellent Riesling or Gerwurztraminer and then south through Burgundy for delicious Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Continuing south we reach the Rhone valley where we will try a fabulous Syrah. We'll obviously travel to Bordeaux and taste one of the best Cabernet/Merlot blends on the planet. Finally we'll journey into the soft warm climate of the Mediterranean to taste wonderful ripe wines from the Languedoc and Rousillon - currently producing some of the most interesting and best value wines in France, including that of Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt (THE only Rose wine in the World to make it to the 100 Best Wines of 2014!). Come and understand why even Hollywood loves French wines! ;-)

The French are guilty of "drinking the best and exporting the rest", but thanks to Cecile's expertise and very own wine cellar, you will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to taste "the real deal" and discover what the fuss about great French wines is finally all about.

It will be a hugely entertaining evening as we celebrate Bastille Day altogether! You will also pick up a fascinating array of information and wine tips along the way. A great way of learning more about French wine and discovering the variety and value is on offer from the Grande Dame of the wine world.

These evenings can make original and interesting gifts - purchase a place as a Gift Voucher, or buy an open gift voucher and let your loved one choose from any of the events that we offer at their leisure.
