Superheroes - the World's Greatest Grapes (Hitchin)
SORRY - SOLD OUT. Why not try another of our 'Great Grapes' tastings on 13th or 20th November? There are more than 1,400 different grape varieties used to make wines around the world but there are a handful that seem to pop up everywhere. You know who you are - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. These are the 'Big Beasts', the international grape varieties - well travelled, seasoned campaigners, who thrive and survive in the main wine-producing regions and are the players behind famous wines including Sancerre, Bordeaux and Burgundy. But, some of them do better in some climates than others. Find out why and taste examples from France, Australia, South America and more as we explore the Superhero grape varieties.
Don't miss this chance to enjoy some familiar grapes and experience how the characater of their wines differs depending upon how and where they are made. No previous wine tasting experience is necessary and this tasting also makes a great Gift for only £27.50.
All tastings feature wines sourced locally, so you can find them easily if you like them, tasting notes, a tutored tasting and use of professional ISO tasting glasses.
