As the seasons change and the nights draw in, we start to alter our wine buying habits and preferences. For most of us, out go light, crisper whites and gentle, strawberry scented rose wines and in come full-bodied, rich, tannic reds with a fuller, richer style.
Not only do these wines pair well with the time of year, but they go beautifully with the change in seasonal foods. As the autumn leaves fall and winter and Christmas beckon, our meals take on a more earthy character with game, mushrooms, slow roasted pork, pumpkin and squash all taking centre stage. These more robust flavours need a punchier style of wine and, if you know where to look, there is a wine for everyone.
There really is something for everyone - from a traditional smoky Rioja to the vinous beast that is Australian Shiraz!
Tonight we'll taste our way through some of the best examples of the huge variety of red wines available.
This wine tasting would make the ideal gift for the red wine lover in your life, and like all our events is available to book as a gift voucher. Just book a place below and click on the 'send me a gift voucher' link in the automated email you receive.
