Cruising along the Loire
- an introduction to the region and its wines
with Rebecca Gibb MW
Get on board this amazing journey across the Loire valley starting in Muscadet and cruising westward, via Anjou-Saumur and Touraine.
Rebecca Gibb MW will be your guide offering you an exclusive overview of the Loire, its terroir, its grape varieties and its wines. From a bubbly Crémant to a delicious range of single varietal Chenin, at its different sweetness levels, there will be something for every palate and curious mind.
The Loire landscape awaits you!
An Introduction to Natural Wine
- everything you need to know about minimal intervention pours
with the Yorkshire Wine School
Do you ever wonder what the whole ‘natural wine’ talk is all about?! Does it fascinate you? Does it baffle you? Or maybe you’d just like to know what in fact IS a natural wine and whether there are any distinct character and/or benefits to it?
The Yorkshire Wine School designed this masterclass to answers all these questions and more. The school’s specialist will go through the principles of low intervention viticulture and winemaking, and explain the natural vs. conventional differences.
They’ll explain and dispel myths or preconceptions. You’ll taste, learn and decide for yourself!
