Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wines tasting of Germany, Austria & England. Time to discover the aromatics of Europe!
Germany is the home of the king of the white grapes, Riesling, an extremely versatile grape, making some of the world’s best-aged whites.
Forget Germany of the past (wine-wise). The UK used to be inundated with mainly sweet, sugary wines from Germany (e.g. Liebfraumilch) but now is dominated by dry, acidic and mineral-led wines from Riesling, Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder) and Pinot Gris (Grauburgunder) and the complex and wondrous Pinot Noirs (Spatburgunder). It’s a country with a well-guarded secret of amazing wines, something we’ll have to investigate.
We'll also get under the skin of English wines and Austrian wines. The tasting will include two wines from England and a white and red wine from Austria.
Food and wine pairing principles wil also be discussed at this tasting.
Your evening will include: tasting samples of six carefully selected wines, light nibbles, full wine notes & handouts, 2 hour interactive presentation, with Q&A, led by our wine tutor
