TASTING: EXPLORING LORD FAIRFAX’S CELLAR
The grand Tour of Wine Part 1: The Grecian Odyssey
The Grand Tour was a well-established rite of passage for the wealthy young – particularly in the 18th Century. The more adventurous would ensure Greece was on the itinerary and as well experiencing the culture and history of that delightful country it is certain local food and wine was enjoyed in equal measure. Richard Goodacre, Wine Expert and International Wine Judge, will explore the history of Greek wine and illustrate the talk with a tasting of 6 modern day examples made from grape varieties that would have been familiar to the travellers of yesteryear.
Tickets: £20.00: includes tastings of six wines.
