WE HOST A TASTING SHOW WHICH IS AVAILABLE TO WATCH ON YOUTUBE AT YOUR CONVENIENCE.
There is much debate in wine circles over whether we should call grapes "Indigenous" or "Autochtonous". The latter is probably slightly more correct, however it doesn't really trip off the tongue!
Anyway, we are talking about – and tasting, of course – grapes which come from the area in which they first evolved! So many wines come from grape vines which have been taken around the world by explorers for thousands of years, and are now thriving far from where they emerged.
However, their new homes add their own character, so we are looking at some of the most historical and authentic of wine styles, and we're going to have a great time exploring and finding out all about them! But are they still the same as they were thousands of years ago? Lots to talk about, and six great wines to taste!
Our tasting packs contain SIX wines of 100ml samples, perfect for two to share.
Live or on catch-up video after the event.
The Adventurer Series
Our Adventurer Series is perfect for people who feel they know their way around a wine shop, but want to take the next step and explore the differences a great winemaker can have on a wine, learn about lesser-known grapes and find the hidden value around the world.
You'll probably already know the common grape varieties and have some favourite regions, but this remains a great fun, approachable course. We'll explain what the different terms you'll find on a label are, how to taste like a pro, and learn how to master a restaurant wine list! We'll also teach you about food pairings and why things work so well together (or don't!).
Based at the Wine and Spirit Education Trust's Level 2/3 point, this is a great way to take your appreciation of wine to the next level, to demystify wine, to build confidence in choosing wines and to discover some incredible new wines that you may never have even considered before.
We'll teach you all about how these wines are made, what makes them special and we'll highlight a few of the things to watch out for in the wine world and you will have a great time too as it's a mix of entertainment and education!
On this advanced level course, we also introduce a winemaking or grape-growing concept every month.
Either join our LIVE and interactive online tasting (around 90 minutes) where you can ask your own questions, or watch the recording at your own pace, whenever and wherever is convenient for you.
