Red Wines for Summer and BBQs (WINCHESTER)
Consider this session your therapy. Attend this Wine Tasting and you'll overcome your paralysing fear of the world of wine. And you'll open yourself up to new sensory experiences. Becasue wine is like anything else we consume culturally: the more we allow ourselves to engage intellectually with it, the more likely it is to blow our minds!
I am here to debunk the belief that you've got to be disgustingly wealthy or the winner of the world blind-tasting championship to truly appreciate wine. All you need is a sense of adventure. So tonight, we are tasting of carefully selected range of light and medium-bodied red wines.
They tend to be pale-to-ruby in colour, low in mouth-coating tannins, and less than 13.5% abv. I love them for their subtlety and purity. Gastronomes are big fans because these wines to underscore, rather than overpower, food. You can drink a fresh, crisp, light red with almost anything.
You'll enjoy these wines if:
- you consider yourself a "white wine drinker"
- red wines typically give you a headache
- you enjoy lighter fare, such as fish and vegetables
So let's taste some Pinot Noir from Burgundy or Tasmania, some Gamay from Fleurie or Saint-Amour in Beaujolais, some Cabernet Franc from Chinon or Bourgueil, some young Tempranillo from Rioja, some Sangiovese from Chianti. Are you ready to be blown away by delicate aromas and refreshing flavours? PLUS THEY ARE IDEAL FOR FOOD PAIRING ... ESPECIALLY GRILLED MEATS ON YOUR BBQ! So of course we shall also have some Pinotage from South Africa ;-)
This course is perfect for people who are new to wine tasting and just want to learn more in a relaxed environment. This wine tasting makes a great present and can be bought as a Gift Voucher for just £27.50.
