Join us for a 2 hour introduction to some of the best red wine styles in the world! Red wine can be a minefield - from light and fruity Pinot Noir, to a traditional smoky Rioja, all the way to the vinous beast that is Autralian Shiraz! If you like red wine and want to find out a bit more about it, the differences the region makes, the different styles of red wine, or simply just want to understand what all the fuss is about, this is the perfect introduction into the World of Red Wine. On this red wine tasting we'll explore some of these classic wines alongside some new up and coming wine styles from lesser known regions and grapes.
WORLD OF WINE - Grand Tour of Italy Italy can be the most confusing wine country to get to know, with its enormous diversity of wine styles, often from the same town! Grapes like Falanghina, Fiano, Greco, Vermentino and Verdicchio to name a few, don’t help the cause! It is, however, worth spending a little time to understand it, with the discoveries amply repaying the effort involved. Italian whites have rightly become one of the biggest success stories of the wine world over the last few years as a new wave of growers has put back the flavour and regained confidence in the local varieties which were always best suited to the local conditions.
WORLD OF WINE - Australia & New Zealand Australia is home to varied and very different wine-making regions. From the hot Barossa Valley which produces rich, chocolatey and peppery Barossa Shiraz to the cooler Margaret River which produces elegant Cabernets and Sauvignon Blancs.
