A fun evening where we help develop your blind tasting skills!
Come and sample specially chosen Burgundy wines showing typical French style and compare them BLIND with wines made in New World countries such as Australia, South Africa or America using the same grapes.
Learn to tell the difference by sight, smell and taste alone! It really helps you understand the impact climate makes in wine production.
Which will you prefer - the French versions or the New World versions? Each evening we will finish voting for our favourites and you may be surprised!
At this tasting, you will learn more about French wine, but you will also build your confidence to explore different wines. The next time you select wine in shops and restaurants you will more likely choose the grapes and country suiting your own taste preference.
Pinot Noir is the grape that makes red Burgundy from light wines good with simple starters to astounding wines matured with age perfect for a special treat. Chardonnay makes white Burgundy from crisp and clean Chablis to richer and oakier wines further south. But what do their New World counterparts taste like and do they pair with the same foods?
By the end of the evening you will have learned:
All tastings include: minimum 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, use of professional tastings glasses and nibbles.
All our courses can be purchased as a Gift either as a dated or undated voucher.
