English Wine Tasting
Join us as we celebrate a British success story, the story of home grown English wine. There's a real sense of excitement and optimism surrounding the English Wine industry as our reputation evolves from not just consumer to producer of world-class wines.
The story, and our tasting, starts with English Fizz. For decades we've been beating the French at their own game with English Fizz regularly being voted as good as or better than similarly priced Champagne. We'lll reveal why English Fizz is soooo good and taste our way around the south east of England with examples from Kent and Sussex.
However, Fizz is only one side of the story. From Cornwall to Norfolk England's cool-climate vineyards are also producing quality wines in a variety of styles. A youthful, innovative industry is still experimenting but the wines get better and better, year after year. We will spend some time celebrating our very local sucess here in Norfolk tasting wines from Winbirri Vineyards and other local vineyards that have put Norfolk firmly on the world winemaking map. We'll also share how local producers are using the most modern vineyard management techniques to produce stunning wines with laser-guided efficiency. We'll also taste a couple of English wines from around the regions that demonstrate just how promising the future looks.
Professional ISO tasting glasses, all tasting materials including tasting sheets, water biscuits and table water are provided.
