So, if you are interested in wine, come and meet like-minded people and enjoy tasting and learning in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Our programme of wine tastings and wine courses in Manchester over the next few months is as follows:-

WINE TASTING EVENINGS

New for 2013

Our Manchester wine tasting evenings are designed to appeal to people who appreciate fine wine.

They are relaxed and informal in style. The tutor will give some background information and then simply introduce each wine and encourage discussion. A wine tasting sheet and, where appropriate, maps will be provided but not detailed notes.

Unless otherwise indicated, 8 wines will be tasted. There will be mineral water and water biscuits to refresh your palate between the wines.

Tuesday 5th February – Chile - £25

A tour of the newer regions of Chile looking at how the proximity to the ocean or growing grapes higher up the mountain slopes contributes to crisp clean dry whites, aromatic whites wines and more powerful evolved red wines.

8 wines.

Tuesday 12th February – Wine and Cheese - £25.

Why wines and cheeses are not always a good match but when you serve the right combination they are very, very good. An evening of 6 wines each tasted with 6 different cheeses and marked according to your preference. The total marks for each wine and cheese combination will be added up and the overall score compared to yours. We will taste Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Sauternes, Vintage Character Port, a, big bold Cabernet Sauvignon and a dry sherry with each cheese.

6 wines and 6 cheeses.

Tuesday 19th February – Champagne and Other Sparkling Wines - £30

A exploration of fizz from around the world. All served ‘blind’, so can you tell the difference between your Cava, Prosecco, Champagne, Vintage Champagne, English Sparkling wine or classics from New Zealand?

8 sparkling wines including 2 Champagnes.

Tuesday 26th February – Classic Grape – Sauvignon Blanc - £25

The profile of a single grape variety - Sauvignon Blanc. Tasted from Bordeaux and the Loire in France, through warmer climates like California and South Africa, not forgetting New Zealand including both oaked and unoaked versions and to finish with a dessert style of late harvest Sauvignon.

8 wines.

Tuesday 5th March – The Wines of Miguel Torres - £25

The profile of one winery tasted through its styles of wine - the Bodega of Miguel Torres in Penedes, Spain. Tasted from the introductory level, through the mid-price range right up to the flagship red and white wines.

Another 8 stunning wines.

Special Offer – Book for all five tastings and pay just £115 - a saving of £15 on the list price. Would make a great Christmas gift.
