Event details

Intermediate wine tasting

Following on from his first Languedoc tasting at the School in March, journalist and WSET Diploma student Richard Lane returns to offer you the chance to get closer to this large, diverse and constantly evolving historic region of southern France. You do not need to have attended the first tasting to enjoy the great selection of wines on offer.

This tasting will include a traditional sparkling wine with a history that pre-dates Champagne, some international varieties that might appear more at home in Burgundy, and the role of Carignan, once much maligned, but, thanks to a new generation of winemakers, now playing an important role in 21st century Languedoc.
