Rosé wine is a perfect summer tipple.
On a hot day when you know when you are avoiding a tannic, full red wine you may find yourself hankering after something else other than a glass of white - so why not look to rosé?
Warm and hot wine regions understand this perfectly. And many, like Provence in Southern France, are a strong source of rosé wines for that very reason.
Yet some think rosé wine has no serious potential due to the many cheap examples lining our supermarket shelves.
Join us for a tasting that sets the rosé record straight and introduces you to top-class examples. This might be the tasting that opens your eyes and gives you new options for warmer weather.
We'll taste 3 rosé wines made from different grapes and countries. A Merlot rosé from South Africa, a deliciously different blend of Sangiovese, Barbera, Groppello and Marzemino rosé from Italy and a surprising and savoury Cru Classé rosé from Provence made using Tibouren and Grenache (aged briefly under a film of yeast).
Book on this page for ONE person connecting to our online tasting. For TWO or more people using one video device you can save money using this page: please see here.

Simply book your spaces and we'll send a link for ordering the wines. We will also send instructions for joining Zoom from a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Zoom is a very sociable medium for wine tasting and we can guarantee you'll have fun! Each session will last just over an hour.
Special case price is £50.09 (normal price £58.93 - 15% discount). Delivery is free in the Cambridge area or £8.99 elsewhere. You can book more than one online tasting and combine wine deliveries to spread the delivery charge.
Note - you need only consume a tasting sample of each wine opened during the session and you can follow our wine preservation tips to keep leftovers for another day.
Cut off date for ordering national wine deliveries is Sun 4 Sep.
