Castello Banfi is a family-owned vineyard estate and winery in the Brunello region of Tuscany. As one of the most famous wineries in Italy, Castello Banfi has a long reputation for producing fine wines and “sparking a renaissance in the art of Italian winemaking”. Equally modern, Banfi has pioneered clonal research on the Sangiovese vine to produce a more consistent Brunello di Montalcino, together with pioneering such technological developments as electro-dialysis and nitrogen bottling. Recent awards include “Winery of the Year” by both Wine Enthusiast and Wine & Spirits Magazine, and Top Ten Wines by Wine Spectator. Tonight we warmly welcome Dante Cecchini, who is travelling from the estate to guide us through a range of their excellent wines.

Wednesday 5th Week (21 May)
7.15pm for 7.30pm
Rainolds Room, Corpus Christi College **Note room change!**

www.cluver.com

Paul Cluver Wines are grown on De Rust, one of the largest and oldest estates in the Elgin Valley. The Estate, an hour drive from Cape Town is very highly regarded with wines recently praised by critics including Matthew Jukes and Jancis Robinson. The Cluver family bought the Elgin farm in 1896 to provide summer grazing for their livestock. It was only in the 1980s that the area was identified as a potential cool climate wine-growing region which led to the first Cluver plantings in 1986. Guided by Dr Paul Cluver, neurosurgeon, apple farmer and chairman of Capespan and Vinfruco, this is a strong family-led estate. Tonight we are delighted to welcome Paul Cluver junior who is visiting the UK to present his sought-after wines to our Society.

45 places. Please book online. £5 on the door.
