Event Description

After the famous 'Judgement of Paris' tasting in 1976 where the creme de la creme of France was pitched against the risers and shakers of California, the world took note of this now famous wine region as it took top spot. Almost forty years on, some of the New World's finest wines are now found here. In Napa there is a concentration of powerful and complex Cabernet Sauvignon, with excellent Chardonnay found in most coastal zones, fruit-driven and spicy Zinfandel found in Sonoma & Lodi and up-and-coming Rhone-style blends (Grenache/Syrah) found in Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo. These certainly are finely crafted wines that we shall tuck into with gusto. 

We'll also taste an elegant Pinot Noir from Canada who are elevating their reputation as a great wine nation, and for a bit of fun we'll also travel to the East Coast where we'll taste a fantastic wine from Virginia.

All tastings are tutored with a digital presentation and you will receive full tasting notes, a tasting sheet and food nibbles.
