Event Description

We'll help you navigate your way around these classic wine regions, its really frustrating that a lot of Old World Wines are named after places, eg Rioja is a place - do you know the grape variety?

We'll talk about and taste the classic grapes you will have heard of from Cabernet Sauvignon, to Merlot, to Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Tempranillo, Malbec....oh yeah, that one originated in France not Argentina!

We'll be tasting at least 6 wines heres some examples we have to choose from;


  • Rioja
  • Chianti
  • Bordeaux
  • Barbaresca
  • Macon
  • Chablis
  • Cote Du Rhone
  • Primitivo
  • Montepulciano
  • Pouilly Fume
  • Albarino
  • Sancerre
  • St Emillion
    ......crikey so many great wines, so little time!

 Can be bought as part of our Four Week Introduction to Wine Evenings
