World of Wine - Germany, Austria & UK
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wines tasting of Germany, Austria & UK. Time to discover the aromatics of Europe!
‘Germany is the home of the King of the white grapes, Riesling, an extremely versatile grape, making some of the world’s best-aged whites’ – Jonny
Forget Germany of the past (wine-wise). The UK used to be inundated with mainly sweet, sugary wines from Germany (e.g. Liebfraumilch) but now is dominated by dry, acidic and mineral-led wines from Riesling, Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder) and Pinot Gris (Grauburgunder) and the complex and wondrous Pinot Noirs (Spatburgunder). It’s a country with a well-guarded secret of amazing wines, something we’ll have to investigate.
We'll also try two English wines and two Austrian wines.
All tastings include; minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet, use of professional tastings glasses and nibbles.
