Grape Off: The Terrior Series (Italy)
The return of our incredibly popular Grape Off series which pitches the YWS presenters against each other in a bare-knuckle fight to win the votes of the Wine School audience. Whilst our first Grape Off series focused on tasting the same grape variety from different countries, our new series will pit different regions from the same country up against each other. This week we move on to Italy and wine school presenters Richard, Rachael and Laura.
The premise is simple; each presenter picks a wine region which they believe showcases the best that Spain has to offer, they'll show two wines which will help them make their case, the wines can be white, red, sweet, dry, fizzy, fortified.... anything goes! The only restriction? One wine must be priced at no more than £12.50, one must cost less than £25.
Tonight promises to be battled particularly fiercely; when Richard first embarked on his wine journey his starting point was 3 months travelling round Italy visiting many regions and tasting with many fine winemakers, meanwhle Rachael has recently been to Italy with work and is now passionate about indigenous varieties, finally, for Laura, Italy was the country that got her wine adventure started years ago when she started working for a small Italian bistro. Lets see what these three can come up with...
These evenings are packed full of raucous fun, are the ideal follow-up to our World of Wine and other introductory courses, or perfect for aficianados of Italian wines. Our Grape Off evenings are always seriously popular with our Wine School regulars so make sure you reserve your place QUICK!
