Kew Society Wine Tasting Course

June 22, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Wine Tasting Course for Kew Society Members

“Classic Regions of Europe”

Taking place over four Mondays June 22nd & 29th, July 6th & 13th at 8pm – 9.30 in The Good Wine Shop.

Following the success of the introductory course at the end of last year, The Good Wine Shop has devised a follow-up course for Kew Society members featuring a more detailed look at four classic European wine regions. The course will again be led by Wine Educator, Pippa Hayward.

In each session members will taste four representative wines from each of the following areas – Bordeaux, Rioja, the Loire valley and the Veneto.

Discover what makes a “Right Bank” wine different to a “Left Bank” one in Bordeaux; why a tiny corner of northeast Italy enjoys such a high profile; how a traditional region like Rioja is changing and what explains the sheer diversity of wines along the Loire valley.

The course aims to hone your tasting skills and develop your understanding of how history, climate, geography and sometimes even fate, can combine to produce wines unique to a particular area.

Comments on the introductory course:

“This was my first wine course and Pippa was fab, lovely manner. I learnt a lot.” “Pippa is an excellent teacher and impressively well informed.”

“…made me more confident about coming in to a wine shop and asking for advice or questions.”

“A lovely course…I cannot drink a bottle now without thinking about the mouthfuls from start to finish!”
The course will run on four consecutive Monday nights – June 22, June 29, July 6 and July 13 – at The Good Wine Shop starting at 8pm. The cost will be £90 per person and there are 15 places available. Please register your interest by 29th May 2015.
