October 2020 sees us joining forces with some of our colleagues in the Local Wine School network for a series of online tastings looking at wines from four southern hemisphere countries, Argentina, Australia, South Africa and Chile.
And we’re thrilled that for each session, we’ll be joined by a winery representative who’ll be able to talk us through the wines, tell us about their region and their history, and answer any questions you may have. Or at least that will have been the case in the previous 3 weeks…
For Week 4, due to time differences, we’ll be pre-recording an interview for this session with the team from Chaffey Brothers in Australia’s Barossa Valley – for some reasons, they weren’t up for a session beginning at 3:30 in the morning. Although the Chaffey family has a long and very interesting history in Australia, both from wine and non-wine points of view, the Chaffey Brothers winery is a fairly new enterprise for the Barossa Valley. Or should that be the Barrosa Valley…? We’ll find out more about how this part of South Australia got its name and also sample (among other things) the only example of Kerner in the southern hemisphere
