Join us as we explore the USA. Most people only think of California when it comes to American wine but every State in the US makes wine to one degree or another.
The USA and its wine-making monster, California, offer two seemingly contradictory wine images. Firstly there is the world of cheap, sweet, soft, pink wines, served by the glass down the pub and sold by the boatload in the supermarket. Secondly, there is the super-premium, super-exclusive, super-expensive world of boutique Napa Valley wineries, as shown in films like Sideways.
Which is the 'real' Californian wine? Tonight we will explore everything in the middle: discover strawberry-scented Zinfandel (the red one, not the pink!), earthy Pinot Noir, and creamy soft Chardonnay. Californian wines are elusive and often expensive, but they are ranked as some of the best in the world, for good reason - come along and taste for yourself to see why.
You'll also taste wines from some of the other states, such as Riesling from New Yorks's Finger Lakes, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir from Oregon, and many others.
(Note, this evening is part of our core 8-week course - book all 8 evenings and save £55! It's flexible, so if you have to skip an evening you can pick it up the next time it runs).
This evening is suitable for all levels of wine knowledge!
This event will include tasting samples of six carefully selected wines, wine notes & handouts, and a 2-hour interactive presentation, with Q&A, led by our wine tutor.
