Wine Workshop - Monday 18 September

Described as "France's Greatest Secret" by Tim Atkin MW Alsace's wines also have another secret to share.

This stunning wine producing region is often put forward as the easiest region to understand since there are only seven permitted grape varieties and a simple to grasp classification system.

However, what may come as a surprise is that the wines are made to either a Protestant or Catholic style.  Come for a bit of an insight into the history of Alsace and see if you can taste out which wine is which.  If you're either Catholic or Protestant will your preferred style match your faith?

We'll be tasting 8 wines starting with a welcome fizz, followed by some other superb examples from Alsace and a much sought after "sticky" made from vines which are over 65 years old.

Retailing for around £71 a bottle The Wine Spectator scored this wine 94 points describing it as "outstanding".

It's an informal, fun workshop which should leave you in no doubt as to why Alsace keeps 75% of the wines produced for themselves.  Considering Alsace produces more wine than the UK consumes each year this is quite a statement.  Be prepared, you may come away planning a visit to Alsace soon!  

You'll also have the chance to enter a fun quiz to win a pair of tickets to  Fizz Feast.  Bring a friend or come on your own for a great start to the week. We'll also enjoy some cheese and charcuterie during the evening.

Normally £35 a pair we are very lucky to have another fab Bite Reader Offer - £32 a pair for two!
