Italian wine tasting

Red-wine

Wednesday Week 1 (27th April)

This week, meet Marco from Italy - an international wine broker for Italian and European wines. With decades of wine industry experience and based in Italy, he knows Italian wines inside out - from the rural and rustic lesser known varietals, to the big and bold Amarones, Barolo's and Chianti's. This week, he will be showcasing various premium up-and-coming wines. These include three from Piedmont, a Roero made in the typical method and a Roero arnei and Roero sparkling made in the Classic method. After one of the most typical grape of Piedmont that is Barbera Superiore d'Alba. He will also be showcasing others from Campania, like the Greco di tufo and Falanghina that are 100% single grape. The last wine is an Aglianico but this is a blend of 85% Aglianico and 15% Merlot to balance this wine in perfect way. We look forward to seeing you here!

40 places available. £5 for members, £10 for guests. 6.45pm for 7pm start, Blue Boar Exhibition Space, Christ Church

Hotel-Weingut Barth

Nahe

Tuesday Week 2 (3rd May)

This week we will present Hotel-Weingut Barth to you, a little family run winery in the south of Germany's up shooting wine region Nahe. Here, Reinhold Barth and his son Gregor (ranked one of Germany's top 5 young wine makers last year) are deeply involved in every step of the wine making process and their dedication is beautifully reflected in their single vineyard, single varietal wines. Germany is best known for its Riesling, but the Barth's also work with a number of other varietals classically grown in Germany including Grauburgunder (pinot gris), Weissburgunder (pinot blanc), Auxxerois, Spätburgunder (pinot noir) and Dornfelder. The tasting will give you an excellent opportunity to get an introduction in German wines outside just Rieslings and show you some of the remarkable stuff done by small producers in Germany.

40 places available. £5 for members, £10 for guests. 6.45pm for 7pm start, Blue Boar Exhibition Space, Christ Church
