Grape Debate Special: Natural vs Normal (Leeds)
To celebrate our new home above Ham & Friends we will spend a night looking at wines made with minimal intervention from the winemaker- sometimes referred to as 'Natural' Wines. The team behind the wine shop and bar at Ham & Friends are passionate about this style of wine, and we can't wait to be showing more of them at our own tastings. So, we have invited Steve Nuttall, manager of The Reliance Restaurant (one of our favourite new neighbours!) and guru on all things cosmically, biodynamically, naturally wine-shaped to battle against YWS's Laura Kent to see whether it will be the 'Natural' or the 'Normal' wines which win out on the night.
Like our previous, very popular, Grape Debate formats, we'll present this as a bit of a head to head wine tasting, with more than a touch of competitive spice thrown in! Steve will be selecting three of his favourite natural, biodynamic wines to bring to Wine School and will be ready and willing to answer your questions: what exactly constitutes 'Natural Wine'? should it taste better than wines we are used to drinking? can we expect to pay more and if so, do they represent good value for money? Is it true that you don't get a hangover from drinking these wines? For those of you who have heard about 'Natural' Wine and are curious to find out more, this is the perfect night to get answers to your questions.
Alongside Steve's fabulously organically splendid wines, Laura will be presenting more familar, more 'normal' versions of the same wines. So will you vote Natural or Normal? Kooky or Classic? Crazy or Conventional? We're looking forward to the debate!
