Connoisseur Wine Day: Tutor Chris Hambleton
Saturday 28 November 2009: Fine Wines of the World
Bacchanalia, Broken Wharf, EC4. £195 per person
An opportunity to learn about wines from a different angle, aimed at those who enjoy their wines, and want to learn more. Some unusual themes and excellent wines accompanied by a food devised especially for the occasion.
No pretentious ‘winespeak’– we don’t lecture to you either. Just great wines, food and company and you go away having learnt a lot and enjoyed yourselves!
The day begins at 10.00am and you’ll taste wines all morning. This is then followed by a special themed lunch served at around 2.00, where you get to match the wines with food, and the day ends at approximately 4.30pm.
You will be in the company of like-minded individuals – around 20 people, men and women aged between 25 and 60! It’s a fun and enjoyable day’s entertainment – plus you learn all about the wines at the same time.
Gewurtztraminer Grand Cru Domaine Paul Zinck, Alsace, France
