Learn by Grape

How does Pinot Noir from Burgundy differ from the southern hemisphere? Why does Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire taste different to New Zealand?

Join us to discover why wines from the same grape can differ so widely - and then decide which you prefer.

In this series of three evenings we take six popular grave varieties and contrast how culture, climate and winemaking shapes them to reflect their countries of origin

Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc

Syrah/ Shiraz and Chardonnay

Cabernet Sauvignon and Chenin Blanc

Each evening is conducted in a light-hearted and fun way, finishing with a vote to see if we preferred the French or the New World versions. You may be surprised which you like best!

And we'll teach you to tell the difference between countries by smell and taste alone! Imagine how much easier that will make it the next time you have to choose.
