VIRTUAL 4-week wine course on lesser-known French wines
4 weeks on French wines from less well-known regions and grape varieties ... online via Zoom!
Step away Bordeaux, Champagne and Burgundy, and make space for Chinon, Muscadet and Alsace. France has over 400 wine regions, so it’s no surprise that many of the wines we know come from the more famous areas. But that means there are many, many more delights to discover.
Down on Chateauneuf-du-Pape? Try these 8 lesser-known French wines, which are part of our pre-selected case (available to purchase separately from our recommended wine merchant, Frazier's). From Saumur and Saint-Bris to Picpoul and Pinot Blanc, there are affordable, top-tier wines to be found if you know where to look ... and that's exactly what you shall learn during this super entertaining and extremely educational wine course. All from the comfort of your very own living-room. No more babysitter to pay, no more taxis to book, no more rain to dodge on the way to the venue. Just a safe and convenient way to share good wine in good company.
So spread the word and invite family members, friends, colleagues and hairdressers (I shall miss mine dreadfully during confinement) altogether for a few good laughs amongst wine lovers. A perfect way to socialise safely! ;-)
Here are the wines we shall taste on the night (2 per tasting evening):
- The Loire Valley revisited: Muscadet (sur lie) and Chinon (Cabernet Franc)
- Burgundy and South-Western France revisited: Aligote and a Merlot/Tannat blend
- The South of France revisited: Picpoul de Pinet and Banyuls (sweet Grenache)
- Alsace revisited: Pinot Blanc and a Cremant (sparkling Pinot Blanc & Auxerrois)
This pre-selected case of 8 wines will be available to purchase on Frazier's own website at the discounted price of only £90 WITH FREE DELIVERY (link provided by email).
This course shall run on 4 consecutive Fridays, starting with Friday 22nd of January 2021, 7.30pm-9pm, via Zoom. No previous tasting experience is necessary ... just an open mind and a thirst for knowledge required! We shall also discuss food pairings and recommend recipes for the food lovers amongst us.
Each week will be recorded on Zoom so that if you ever miss a week, no problem you can catch up with the recording in your own time. This is the new way to enjoy wine, LIVE, interactive and all in the comfort of your own home!
So, how does it work? Click below to purchase the course (the charge of £50 is per household and per device and for 4 online tastings). The wines are to be purchased separately. There is no pressure to buy the wines, as you can still attend these fun and educational tastings without a glass of wine in hand. I simply recommend buying them as I will be tasting them in depth on the night. I will then email you the link to purchase this pre-selected case of wine from Frazier's own website so that you can buy the accompanying tasting case in advance, AT A DISCOUNT PRICE AND WITH FREE DELIVERY. Your Zoom tasting invitation will be sent via e-mail 1 week prior to each tasting event, with some food pairing advice for you to enjoy those wines to the max.
On the night, prepare your wines, click the Zoom invitation, relax and enjoy your online wine tasting course!
