Virtual World of Wine Tasting Series - RED WINES OF ITALY
With current Covid regulations preventing us from running our usual “classroom” events we are going online to offer you the same expertly tutored wine experience
The idea is that we will all have 3 easily sourced wines that are similar for all of us, and we will link in via a Zoom session and taste the wines together over an hour or so. This will be a fun get-together and your host, Justin, Raquel or Mike, will share their knowledge and stories as they look at a variety of wine styles from around the world - some familiar to you, some less so.
We will open and taste the 3 wines together. (You need only consume a sample of each and afterwards you can follow our wine preservation tips to keep left overs for another day).
You can hop in and out of the sessions as you want, and, it will be recorded and available for you to be able to watch in your own time later on if you want to.
There is a £12.50 joining fee per household for the evening, and then, as set out below, you will need to purchase the wines required for the evening.
We will also send instructions and you will be able to join via Zoom from a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Zoom is proving to be a very sociable medium for wine tasting so we can guarantee you'll have fun! Each session will be around 75 minutes, starting at 7pm.
On each evening, we’ll get together, and we’ll talk about the wines, the regions and countries that they came from, share a few stories, and other than that, just have a jolly good yarn over a couple of glasses of wine.
Wednesday 9th Dec. Red Wines of Italy
We’ll journey from north to south in this amazing wine country, tasting varied grape varieties both famous and less so. Local wine making techniques we’ll look at too and see how Italy has red wine for every occasion and what makes their wines so often a wonderful partner with food
Wines required for the Introduction to Wine Tasting – Just select from your local stockist , supermarket or wine shop, examples of the wines listed below . Its up to you what you spend but remember you will get better value nearer £10 than £5. We’ll talk a bit about key 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 further hone your wine tasting skills. We'll also cover things like use of oak, find out which is better - cork or screw cap, and bust a few common wine myths along the way.
- Wine No.1 – Italian Barbera
- Wine No.2 - Valpolicella Ripasso
- Wine No.3 - Primitivo
