Battle of the Grapes – the Red Wine Grape Off

31st March 2017 @ 19:00 - 21:00


At any time of year you can’t beat a nice glass of red wine! Join us this November in Manchester city centre, where we will taste our way through some of the best examples of red wines from around the world. Not sure about which particular red grape varieties you like but know what style you’re into? Well for those of you who are interested in red wine need look no further. The Red Wine grape varieties will battle it out with some classics from the Old World tasted against some firm favourites from the New World. Which will you prefer?

By comparing and contrasting red wines from around the world, we will explore how styles can differ dependent on county and climate. We will focus on the differences between Old World wines and their New World counterparts.

On the night we could be comparing some of your favourite varieties, which could include, Shiraz, Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon

Do you think you can tell the difference between Syrah from Rhone Valley and Shiraz from the Barossa Valley?

What about a Malbec from Cahors v the famous Argentinian Malbec. Does a classic Bordeaux Claret appeal or will you prefer a South African version?

We’ll take you on a guided tour through each region/country to find the right one for you.

All accompanied by full tasting notes as well as a selection of cheese and cold meat to accompany the tasting.

Great value at £25
