Event Description

You will taste your way through some of the best examples of the huge variety of red wines available. With red wines there really is something for everyone - from light and fruity Beaujolais, to a smooth Valpolicella, all the way to the ever popular Argentinian Malbec!

On this red wine only tasting we'll explore some of the classic wines of the "Old World" as well as some great value "New World" wines.

Examples of wines you can expect to taste at the event are:

French Beaujolais Village...why is it called "village"? 
Chilian Pinot Noir....where is home for Pinot Noir?
Spanish Tempranillo, the backbone of many Spanish Reds
Merlot....usually the house red, but why?
Italian Valpolicella
Argentinian Malbec, or French?


We'll also talk more generally about how to get the most out of your bottle of wine, the art of decanting, learn about tannin and the affect it has on food, the best temperature to serve wine at and why some wine gets better with age.
