In all of the classic French Viticultural regions, it is probably the Rhône Valley that offers the most diversity of style. From the Northern part of the valley where the Syrah grape can be found in it’s purest expression, down to the Southern reaches where Châteauneuf-du-Pape and a myriad of other wines utilise grapes such as Grenache, Mourvedre and Roussanne. This school will take you down the valley and showcase the classic regions and styles. A school for the classical drinker!
Just a few years ago, English wine was regarded as a misnomer, how that has all changed! We now can lay claim to producing some of the best sparkling wines to be found anywhere. This school will focus on those great competitors to Champagne of course, but will also have a useful insight into the range of aromatic white wines being produced, along with something pink and red. We will focus on Southern England from Kent to Cornwall.
Chianti lovers won’t be disappointed here, but think of all those other Italian regions producing consistently great wine – Campania, Trentino Alto-Adige being just a couple we will showcase. Italian wine has often been viewed as the most food-friendly of all the great wine producing regions, so we will go into some depth about the process of pairing classic dishes to these great regions.
Our specialist subject, and in perfect timing as our latest shipment will be on the water from the 2015 Spring releases. Join us for a vinous trip around Napa, Sonoma & Mendocino Counties, plus a trip down South to Arroyo Grande. We will explore the classic grape varieties and compare hillside and coastal fruit. Many of the wines being opened will be totally new and exclusive to The Vineyard.
In this school, we look at what has probably been the biggest growth area in the world of fine wine in recent years, Argentina. It is with the current excitement around steakhouses in the restaurant world that the noble Malbec grape has found to be one of the perfect matches to beef. We will explore the range of wines that Argentina produces, featuring Malbec as their pinnacle of achievement. Daniel Galmiche will also prepare a couple of beef cuts for us to pair to the wines being opened.
