With John Hoskins MW, Proprietor of The Old Bridge.

Thursday 28th July 2022, 7.15pm.
£65 per person.

“Introduction” to wine tastings are themed around grape varieties or regions. The format is informal, suitable for anyone with an interest in wine who might want to get a bit more understanding of the subject. They are tutored by John Hoskins, Master of Wine and owner of the hotel. We taste for about an hour and a half (8+ wines from the everyday to the very best). Then there’s an informal supper – 2 courses, a couple of glasses of wine, coffee.

Ubiquitous Pinot Grigio has rather dumbed down the image of Italian whites. While everyone knows the reds offer an incredible range of styles and flavours, the whites are often thought of as uniformly light and squeaky-clean. But this is not the case! We will taste aromatic Fiano from the south, oak-matured Garganega from the Veneto, intense but delicate Vermentino from Sardinia – and many more.

Nibbles with the tasting; sea bream with cherry tomatoes and herbs; tiramisu to finish.
