The wines produced from this stretch of vinous real estate are among the world’s greatest. Technically falling within Burgundian boundaries, areas such as Chablis and Beaujolais retain their own distinct identities. At the heart of Burgundy lies the Côte d’Or. It is divided into two distinct areas: the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. If you've always been interested in learning more about Burgundy, this is the perfect evening to come and join us. We'll take you through everything you need to get started: Some of the history, difference between the areas, how to select and purchase, how to store, age, and drink them. And of course you'll be tasting some fabulous wines, from entry level through to 1er Cru. Grab some friends and book now for this event or one of the three other sites running this tasting.

There is only one thing better than a glass of Champagne and that is a pink bottle of Champagne. Madame Clicquot was the first to try making a Rose Champagne and the other houses were quick to follow. Not only is it delicious on its own, it is surprising how versatile a Rose Champagne can be with food. Lighter styles work well with most seafood while more full bodied wines can be enjoyed with lamb and duck...yum! We have a fabulous line up to try so book online without delay to secure a place.

The 2018 vintage in Burgundy has finally arrived after many shipping delays thanks to the eventful past year! It was a heatwave vintage that began with extremely wet winter months. While young vines struggled somewhat, the older vines ripened fully due to high water tables. This resulted in exceptionally healthy and clean fruit. Given that it was hot there was some initial doubt that the whites would shine, but the resulting fruit was bright and shows energetic freshness. The bonus for the reds was that there was no disease pressure, the fruit was pristine and healthy and the red wines are showing a wonderful freshness and vibrancy. We have gathered together a lovely line up across a variety of appellations, including 3 Grand Cru that will show off this remarkable character of this great vintage. We will be tasting: Michel Gros Fontaine St Martin Blanc Monopole 2018, Jean Chartron Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Pucelle Monopole 2018, Michel Gros Nuits St George 1er Cru 2018, Tortochot Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2018, Gros Frere Vosne Romanee 1er Cru 2018, Michel Gros Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2018, Gros Frere Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2018, Tortochot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2018. Don't miss this stunning lineup!
