Event Description

Welcome to our newest 4 week course and the most ambitious ever in scope - 26 grape varieties beginning with ever letter of the alphabet, tasted in order.

Expect to taste old favourites, discover new varieties, and perhaps try some which are a great twist on classic varieties.

When putting together the four tasting evenings there were many challenges - how to balance white grapes with red, how to ensure we were showcasing wines from around the world, how to choose with letters like ‘C’ where there were so many amazing options, but the most challenging of all problems… what the heck do we show for letters like ‘Q’ and ‘Y’??? We can’t wait to show you what we’ve chosen!

As a further twist we will be serving each wine blind with clues so you can have a go at guessing the grape with all 26 wines.

Course Programme (4 sessions - all Thursdays):

22nd Sept - A, B, C, D, E, F and G
29th Sept - H, I, J, K, L and M
6th Oct - N, O, P, Q, R and S
13th Oct - T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z

All in all a fantastic opportunity to taste 26 fascinating and different grape varieties and to discover those you like best. Challenge the way you think about wine - for ever!

Each evening includes: tasting samples of carefully selected wines, cheese, tasting notes, a 2 hour interactive presentation, with Q&A, led by your friendly wine tutor.
