The BIG Summer Wine Festival 2018

 


 

 

Event Details

Sherborne’s BIG Summer Wine Festival is coming to you courtesy of Vineyards (supported by Battens Solicitors). A fantastic opportunity to sample over 120 wines from around the world in a fun and relaxed environment.

 

One of the aspects that we love about our job is the fact that we try every wine before we agree to stock it at Vineyards. The BIG Summer Wine Festival will give you the chance to try a variety of delicious wines side by side and discover what your palate enjoys. Arranging the line up of wines has been a real delight and we are rather excited to bring back a Summer wine event of this size to Sherborne.

Beaujolais is dubbed 'red wine country' and the wine from this region is made from the Gamay grape (only 1% of the wine is white and made from Chardonnay). Gamay gives fragrant wines that are full of raspberry and cherry fruit, and is very light in tannins. Simply delicious and often partnered with lamb, so we thought we would put together a special, pre-Easter tasting.
 
Beaujolais accounts for approximately half the production of wine-making Burgundy. So we have decided to make it a Burgundy & Beaujolais tasting.
 
Many believe Burgundy to be the source of the world's most exhilarating wines and that it offers opportunities to explore that are matched by few other regions. Our masterclass will endeavour to introduce and help you differentiate the styles produced within the region. We will be showcasing 10 wines during a two hour slot and there will be plenty of opportunity for you to learn about the region, grape varieties, producers and to ask lots of questions along the way. 
 
As with all of our tastings, there really is no expectation that you bring along previous knowledge. The tastings are conducted by specialists who wish to allow anyone with an interest in wine, or an eagerness to broaden their knowledge alongside sampling wine, a chance to do so. We all have different palates and that is the fun part. Come along, sip some wine, and join the laughter.

We are rather excited to announce an exclusive opportunity to meet the winemaker of one of our much loved wine producers: Groote Post. We heard only yesterday that Nick is flying over from South Africa next week and he would like to hold a tasting at Vineyards. This is a special opportunity and I urge you to come along if you are free. Nick is a very charismatic guy and wines produced at their vineyard are memorable. Family is at the heart of the vineyard and the wines they make are made with tender loving care.


T a s t i n g
 
Nick will be showcasing his range of wines and talking you through how each wine is produced at Groote Post including the distinctive features of the vineyard in terms of soil, climate and their production process. One of the wines we will be lucky enough to try on the evening I have dubbed as 'my favourite white wine' this year; Seasalter (Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon)
