Taste the world’s major Grape Varieties side by side, but from different price points, which will win? which will you like the most? Come along to find out!

We will try pairs of the following wines

  • Sangiovese from Tuscany
  • Argentinian Malbec
  • Californian Cabernet
  • White Burgundy
  • Spanish Albariño
  • New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

So come and enjoy a friendly, informal and fun wine tasting journey. No previous experience necessary!
