Fine Wine Tasting (St Albans)
What is the definition of 'Fine Wine'? Is it the vintage (the year in which the wine was made), the region from which it comes, the soil in which the vines were grown or the reputation of the producer? In truth, it is usually a combination of all these factors, and more, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating, or in this case the drinking. Until the bottle is opened and the wine tasted, we can never be certain that any wine can be labelled as 'Fine', and, of course, personal preference is the ultimate judge.
Join us on this very special evening when we will taste at least seven fine wines from both the Old World and New World, including Bordeaux, Italy, South Africa and more. The price of this exclusive ‘fine wine’ tasting reflects the very high quality of the wines being served. The line-up is yet to be finalised but is likely to include:
Nyetimber Brut Classic Cuvee, England
A Medoc 'Cru Bourgeois' Bordeaux (2010)
An iconic South African 'Bordeaux Blend' (2015)
And wines from other quality regions such as Burgundy and McLaren Vale in Australia. This is tasting not to be missed as it is a rare opportunity to taste some fantastic wines across a range of vintages, style, regions and grape varieties including Chardonnay, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Places are limited - book early to avoid disappointment.
