Wine Schools 2015
3rd June - 6.30pm to 8pm
In this school, we look at what has probably been the biggest growth area in the world of fine wine in recent years, Argentina. We will explore the range of wines that Argentina produces, featuring Malbec as their pinnacle of achievement. Daniel Galmiche will also prepare a couple of beef cuts for us to pair to the wines being opened. Taste between 6 and 8 wines in this wine masterclass.
Spain has long had an enviable reputation in crafting unique wines from the classic regions. However over the last few years a raft of “New Spain” has arrived on our shores, providing another element to their world of wine. We will look at both styles, from long-aged Rioja to the wines of Toro & Priorat. A real Iberian road trip!
Burgundy is perhaps the most enticing wine regions for the enthusiast, having so many artisanal producers creating great wines albeit in limited quantities. In this session we will focus on the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes in many expressions, from Chablis through to Macon, and some great bottles from areas such as Gevrey-Chambertin and Vosne-Romanee. This wine school is one for the lover of classic wines.
If you’re a fan of sparkling wine, this wine school will be the ideal opportunity for you to try a range
of sparkling wines from around the world. Of course Champagne will feature, but we will show how
California and Spain compete. Plus take a good look at English fizz – now consistently winning awards
and giving the French classics a real run for their money.
Coravin is the legendary new wine preservation system, invented in the USA and now arrived on our shores. We will open a range of bottles and show how the system operates. Plus taste some wines that have been accessed previously to demonstrate how reliable this invention is. Lovers of a decent glass of wine every night, but who do not want to consume a bottle, or waste wine should attend this. It will change the way you serve your bottles.
