Wine on the edge – Tasting with Tom Cannavan

Vol- cl

A case of six wines to accompany Tom Cannavan’s ‘Wine on the edge’ tasting

THURSDAYS 15 & 22 FEBRUARY 2024

Tasting ticket purchased separately via this link

Our white wines kick-off in the Valle d’Aosta in Italy. The blend is ChardonnayPetite Arvine and Pinot Grigio – a lovely combination of French, Swiss and Italian grapes as befits its crossroads location where these countries meet. From Swartland, a most unusual white wine that blends Chenin Blanc and Grenache Blanc, and while 60% comes from the 2022 vintage, components of the remaining 40% go back to 2016 – with skin-fermented, flor-aged and maderised portions. Completing the line-up, a Riesling from one of Chile’s most southerly and most recently planted wine regions, bordering the country’s lush Lake District.

Our red wines kick off with Frappato, a grape variety indigenous to Sicily and making unusually aromatic, earthy but strawberry-scented reds. Moving on to Germany and Spätburgunder, a.k.a. Pinot Noir, the grape that many people think is Germany’s ace in the pack as climate changes. Our final red is a real curiosity: made from Calabria’s own Gaglioppo, but with a touch of the white grape Greco di Ciro, wild-fermented and made in tiny quantities.

The tasting runs over two sessions from 7pm – 8.15pm each evening. The ticket price covers both sessions and is per household, not per person.
