There are wines that are thought of as the classic wines of the world and which many winemakers around the world have used as benchmarks. Such as a classic Southern Rhone blend of Syrah Grenache and Mourvedre (MSG) or a Bordeaux Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This is a great tasting to learn about or gain knowledge of classic grapes and wines.
'Old World vs. New World'
Here we look at a range of grape varieties and taste what both sides of the hemisphere have to offer. There is often debate on which side is better, whether it’s the Old World such as France and Spain or the New World offerings from New Zealand and Australia. People often have pre-conceived ideas about what they like, but why don’t you let your taste buds do the deciding!
A Trip Around the World
This is a tasting to explore what wine countries around the world have to offer, whether it is well known for pioneering a grape, such as Argentina with Malbec ,or something a little more off the beaten track. Where would you find Aragonez? Whether you are in love with a country for its food, culture or happy memories of a place once visited, you may have a thirst to find out more about it, and want to discover its hidden treasures. Whatever your reasons pick a country or a region of your choice and let’s get tasting!
Champagne and Sparkling Wines
Sipping on bubbles - what a heavenly way to spend a couple of hours! Taste your way through the different styles of sparkling wine and how it’s made. See if you can tell the difference between Champagne and award-winning English Sparkling? This would be a great opportunity to taste vintage Champagne from some of the famous houses like Dom Perignon.
Wine and Chocolate
If you love wine and you love chocolate then this is just for you! Indulge your senses with both, as this is a true taste sensation of all things delicious.
We have teamed with a local chocolatier and have matched her hand-made chocolates to specially selected wines. Can you really match white wine with chocolate? Put your taste buds to the test!
To include chocolate with your wine tasting, just add $15 per person.
Cheese and Wine
Wine and cheese go hand in hand – and for good reason, too! When experimenting with various wine and cheese combinations through a planned tasting, one can start to detect the palate influence of a precise cheese on a particular wine.
For example, an old trick to help a “lower end” Cabernet Sauvignon straighten up and act like a “sophisticated Cab” is to serve it with a crumble of blue cheese. The blue cheese coats the mouth and lays a foundation that softens a young, often astringent Cabernet.
