Northern Italy: PIEDMONT | Wine Tasting in Bath
Weds 20th September | 7pm - 9pm | Great Western Wine, Bath | £17.50
Located at the foot of the Alps in the north-west corner of Italy with a reputation for fine gastronomy and boutique wineries, Piedmont is often referred to as 'The Burgundy of Italy'.
This romantic land of misty hillsides, castles and vines is home to the superstar wines of Barolo and Barbaresco made from the native Nebbiolo grape, but there are plenty more interesting wines from indigenous vines to be explored here, from Barbera to Brachetto.
Join us for a fun guided taste-tour of Italy's finest wine region and discover for yourself the delicious diversity of Piedmonte.
Spain: RIOJA & NAVARRA | Wine Tasting in Bath
Weds 11th October | 7pm - 9pm | Great Western Wine, Bath | £17.50
The famous name of Rioja is synonymous with Spanish wine - but with three distinct sub-regions - each with their own distinct terroir, plus a variety of wine making styles and a number of permitted grape varieties (alongside Tempranillo), there's more to Spain's most famous wine region that perhaps you might realise.
Neighbouring Navarra has been traditionally seen as a producer of Garnacha-based rose and overshadowed by the fame of Rioja, but there is growing interest in the quality and value to be found here with Navarra's world-class white, red and sweet wines from producers such as Chivite.
Come and taste through a selection of delicious fine wines, and focus your attention on these two essential northern Spanish wine regions.
WINTER WARMERS | Wine Tasting in Bath
Weds 15th November | 7pm - 9pm | Great Western Wine, Bath | £17.50
As the nights draw in, we invite you to join us for a handpicked selection of Tristan's seasonal sips chosen for perfect fireside quaffing and pairing with hearty winter fayre.
You can expect to taste a diverse range of delicious and interesting wines, with a couple of off-the-beaten-track selections to add a little interest to your winter wine buying choices.
As always, we invite you to relax and have fun - whilst picking up some top tipple tips along the way!
