Join us in Manchester City Centrefor a two hour introduction to the world’s most important white wine styles and what are the best available in your local supermarket.
Do you prefer crisp, whites like the vibrant Sauvignon Blancs of New Zealand? Or are you more of a fan of aromatic varieties such as Riesling? On this evening we shall explore different styles and flavours you find in white wines by having a whistle-stop tour of the globe. Not only will we taste the classics from the “Old World“, but also some “New World” styles too.
So if you’re a white wine lover, know what you like but want to learn a bit more about it then this is the course for you! We’ll broaden your horizons and perhaps change the way you think about white wines forever!
We’ll talk a bit about the grape varieties and what they taste like as well as the wine regions that they come from, consider their potential for food and wine matching and hone your wine tasting skills. With so much on offer in the supermarket and some really great wines out there that you may have ignored before, we hope to give you the knowledge and inspiration to get out there and try something wonderful!
We will taste 6 to 8 wine with full tasting notes and a selection of cheese and ham nibbles to accompany the wines. Remember we don’t sell wine so no sales pitch either!
