Welcome to 2018! I trust you and your palates are fresh from the break and looking forward to the year ahead.
We’ve decided to start the year with a vinous ‘tasting/tour’ titled ‘Island Wines from Tenerife to Crete’.
Seated in the comfort of the Vintage Room, we’ll take you on a vinous island-hopping cruise to some of the most beautiful (and rugged) locations in the world for wine production. There’ll be 13 red and white wines from eight islands to taste including Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Madeira, Corsica, Ischia, Sicily, Sardinia, Crete and finally Santorini.
Your tour will feature some exceptional wines including outstanding examples from the slopes of Mt Etna and from vineyards overlooking the Straits of Messina, a white and red from the family credited with revitalising Corsican wine, and undiscovered gems from Greece. If you have not drunk genuine Madeira before, this tasting will be a revelation. So do try to join us for an island escape in a glass.
For those who’ve not been before, our ‘tasting/tours’ are relaxed, informal and educative evenings designed to appeal to those members and their guests seeking an introduction to the wonderful world of wine or to expand their existing knowledge. They’re held in the seated comfort of the Vintage Room and only 15 places are available. The wines are served in several flights, accompanied by small food courses chosen by Chef to match the wines.
Here’s the details:
