ONLINE 2 Week Sauvignon Blanc and Malbec
Join us for a virtual 2 week course focussing on two fanstic and popular grape varieties - Sauvignon Blanc and Malbec. Both grapes are native to France but have found fame in other countries. Over two Wednesday evenings, we’ll select 6 superb wines that will bring these two grapes to life. You'll taste Sauvignon Blanc wines from the Loire Valley and New Zealand and explore the reasons behind the different styles.Then we'll taste three Argentinian Malbecs and we'll also take a look at the classic French style from Cahors., lead you through a professional presentation & tasting of the wines, and send you the specific food pairings so that you can prepare simple dishes in advance, and taste them live with us!
It’s a great way to enjoy a foodie night in with great wines to match the dishes, discover new wines and regions; learn a huge amount and – most importantly – have a wonderfully relaxed, fun and informal food & wine experience.

- A 50 min presentation via a link with great images, photos, video links
- A wine pack of six wines, three each evening.
- Food & wine pairing ideas specific to each wine so you can eat along with the wines
