Event Description

Central and Eastern Europe has vineyards that date from Roman times, producing wines celebrated by Kings and Queens. So where did it all go wrong?

The twentieth century was not kind to Central and Eastern European winemakers. The heavy hand of communism, wars, scandal and disease all but undid a centuries old wine culture.

Today the essential ingredients for a twenty first century revival are in play. Climate, ancient grape varieties, old world wisdom, new world investment and more than a pinch of passion.

These are the ingredients for a fascinating tasting. Specialist importer Vida Wines has the local knowledge and a mission to bring us exciting new Central and Eastern European wines that we can’t find anywhere else in the UK.

The tasting will showcase rising stars from Slovakia Slovenia Bulgaria and Moldova featuring grapes that include Storgozia, Sandanski Misket, Dunaj, Pinela, sparkling Rebula, Viorica, Rara Neagra, oh and an Orange Wine made from a blend of Chardonnay and Riesling!

Expect quality wines from new countries, unusual grapes and great value.

Bulgaria Vidinska Gamza Storgozia Red 2018 £17.69
