A Virtual Evening in Burgundy with Drouhin - MEET THE PRODUCER (ONLINE)
Join us to celebrate the run-in to the festive season with a tasting of fine wines from one of Burgundy’s leading producers Maison Joseph Drouhin and for the opportunity to meet a representative from the Drouhin estate.
Representing uncompromising excellence - from Bourgogne Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to the rarest Grand Crus, Maison Joseph Drouhin produces wines from over 90 different Burgundy appellations. One of the most renowned and iconic producers in Burgundy, this impressive, family-owned estate owns vineyards around many of the picturesque villages that together create the most sought-after wine region in the world.
Your evening will be hosted by a local wine school owner who will explain why this region is so special. They will be be joined by a representative from the Drouhin estate who will share the secrets of the family's success. The tasting will be both informative and interactive and you will have plenty of time to ask any questions. You'll also learn how to pair each of the wines with some traditional Christmas fayre.
