Join Natalie Mirzoeff DipWSET to explore the past, present and bright future of English wine, and mark English Wine Week.
England’s winemaking history dates back to the Roman times, but it wasn’t until the latter part of the 20th Century that England took a place on the wine world stage. Increasingly, England is making some of the finest wine in the world.
Our speaker, Natalie Mirzoeff DipWSET will start at the beginning, exploring England’s winemaking history and wines that bring us bang up to date, looking at the developments that have led to England being one of the most exciting emerging wine markets in the world.
We will taste a range of still and sparkling wines, from well-established vineyards where some vines are now over 25 years old, to more recently planted vineyards. We will explore different winemaking techniques, a variety of grape varieties, and discuss how our unique English terroir allows us produce world class wines.
