It's summer – whether you’ve just returned from holiday or you’re just going – let these Mediterranean wines bring some sunny vibes to you. Climate and water play a big role in influencing the style of wine and the Mediterranean with its warm summers and mild winters provides ideal conditions to produce some unique red, white and rose wines you won’t find elsewhere.

During the evening you’ll learn about the long, rich history and culture of the Mediterranean and we will taste 8 wines from the South of France (including Provence), Southern Italy, Sardinia, Sicily, the Levant and Valencia, Greece and Lebanon. (Exact wines will depend on current availability)

We will explore the main characteristics of each wine including its colour, aroma and taste and develop a greater understanding of how and why it has come to be the style it is today. In addition, James will prepare some delicious canapes in true Mediterranean style so we can explore those delicious flavour sensations which will give you greater confidence when ordering wine in a restaurant or choosing a bottle to take home from your local supermarket.

Included in the evening are full tasting notes, maps, tasting sheets and are suitable for those new to appreciation as well as the more experienced.
