After leaving everyone to their own drinking devices over the Silly Season, Wine Class is back in full swing this February so that we can all pretend to be sophisticated, refined wine drinkers once again. Kicking us off this Feb, we’re delving into the vast world of French Wine. If you’re more of a hand-gesturing-vespa-riding kinda guy/gal or you prefer your plonk a little bolder, we’re hosting a fantastic Italian Wine & Cheese Tasting later in the month. And if you can’t make our first French Tasting, we’ve got you sorted this March with what promises to be a great night of paired French wine & cheese.
French White Wine Tasting [ SOLD OUT ]
Wednesday February 5th | 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
“White Burgundy”, “Sancerre”, “Vouvray”, “Chablis”
These are all terms that wine drinkers recognise… but what do they really mean in terms of what’s in the bottle?
The world of French wine can often seem daunting, especially when you consider there are over 200 native varieties to get your head around with labelling that rarely helps you understand what you’re actually drinking. However, when it comes to white wine, it’s not as difficult as it seems. This is because there are a handful of major regions each with such distinctive styles, and once you understand what is grown where and why, you can make huge progress in understanding French wine in only a matter of hours.
In this tasting we will travel to France, moving from the cooler north to the warmer south and you will gain a clear understanding of the different varietals that make up the picture of French white wine and what the flavours and textures are of each.
Run by Etienne, our French wine expert, this will be a fun and informative evening with 8 premium French white wines paired to a selection of delicious French cheeses.
Italian Wine & Cheese Tasting [ SOLD OUT ]
Wednesday February 26th | 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
For this Italian wine & gourmet tasting, you’ll be in good hands. Alessandro from InVinus will be guiding you through 8 carefully selected Italian wines. As an importer of Italian Wines, Ale boasts:
“I handpick my wines with as much attention as they handpick their grapes.”
If you’re a fan of Italian Wine or simply just want to learn more, this Wine Class is perfect for wine & cheese lovers of all and any wine knowledge backgrounds. Hosted in our intimate and beautiful Wine Tasting room, this Wine Class promises to be an informative and entertaining night.
