Friday 16th March The Lost, The Unknown and the Unfashionable Wines of the Loire with Richard Kelly MW

Richard Kelly MW is back to guide us through some of his fantastic wines for our first tutored shop tasting of the year!

Master of Wine Richard Kelly will guide us through a selection of wines from the Loire valley. Richard gained the prestigious MW award in 1995 and is considered one of the UK’s experts on the wines of South Africa and the Loire Valley.

Most people have heard and tried the Sauvignon Blanc’s from the villages of Sancerre or Pouilly Fumé, but this will also be a fun opportunity to learn more about the lesser known appellations that grow the other key grapes of the region including Chenin Blanc both dry and sweet, Pineau Aunis and Cabernet Franc.

Exact line up will be decided nearer the event but expect some of the classics with a few of the alternatives!

Tickets are £15 per person and available online, through the shop or over the phone 01590 674852.
