VIRTUAL WINE UNCORKED INTERACTIVE TUTORED TASTINGS

The idea behind the virtual tastings is to make them affordable and accessible whilst bringing people together over a glass of wine and perhaps discovering some new wines along the way.

  • These online tastings will be held via Zoom with tasters arranging their own wines from a selection that I will suggest from main supermarkets and local merchants.
  • The cost is £10.00 per household and places are limited and do need to be booked in advance.
  • For more information on how the online tastings work or to book a place, please email me carol@wineuncorkededucation.co.uk

I’m very pleased to announce a new series of virtual tastings for 2022

AN A-Z OF GRAPE VARIETIES UNCORKED’

For each tasting, I will take one letter of the alphabet and choose between 2 -4 different grapes which could be white or red or both. They might be familiar, unique to location or rediscovered. Let’s see how far we get through the alphabet!

We will cover:

· The history and origins

· Alternative names and related varieties

· Key locations and factors affecting the style

· Behaviour in blends

Thursday 28th July 2022 - 7.30pm-Torrontes, Teroldego, Touriga Nacional, Tannat

This will take us on a whirlwind world tour beginning with the aromatic whiteTorrontes from Argentina. The remaining grapes are black with Teroldego from North East Italy, Touriga Nacional from Portugal and Tannat from either Madiran in South West France or Uruguay, you choose!

Thursday 18th August 2022- 7.30pm- Verdehlo, Verdejo, Vermentino, Viognier

This tasting is a white grape focus with suggestions of Verdehlo from Australia, Verdejo from Rueda in Spain, Vermentino from Italy, Corsica or Australia and Viognier from France or Australia. They are all very distinctive and different so should be interesting in a line up!
