Following the extremely popular Whistle Stop Tour of Burgundy, Amanda Skinner will be back in Edinburgh to offer an insider's guide into some hidden gems on the Left and Right Banks of Bordeaux.
In her usual informal and personable style, Amanda will be taking us along the length of Bordeaux sharing some of her extensive knowledge about what makes these wines so great.
We'll start with Réserve de Sours - a popular traditional method Bordeaux sparkling wine and Amanda will then introduce wines from six different regions. We'll be guided through the terroirs of Pomerol, St Emilion, Margaux, Pauillac and Entre Deux Mers; discussing what contributes to the individual characteristics and flavours of each of the wines. We'll also be introduced to the personalities behind each wine and the long history of this famous region.
Bring some friends or come on your own – what better way to spend a Monday evening? During the tasting, we’ll have a break for some delicious cheese and charcuterie.
