With a wine-making heritage of over 8,000 years (!), Europe is the undisputed 'old country' of wine-making. But it doesn't mean you can't teach an old dog new tricks! In this tastings we'll explore some of the most exciting, dynamic wines coming out of wine's traditional strongholds today.

"Like That? Love This!"

We all have our favourites – go-to wines for when we're in the mood for something fresh and fruity, or smooth and silky. But maybe you want to branch out just a little and find something that still ticks those boxes but gives you something a bit different. With this tasting you'll discover that if you like that, you'll love this!

What to expect

I may take wine a little more seriously than most but I still like to have fun when tasting it. My sessions are educational, interactive and a little bit irreverent*. Each session is limited to 12 people and we'll taste five wines over about 1.5 hours.

We taste all wines blind – to allow us to really focus on what we're tasting (but there's always a big unveiling at the end). Come prepared to be surprised, delighted and to learn something you never knew about wine!

*I don't have many rules when it comes to wine tasting, but please no strong-smelling perfume, cologne, hair products, etc.

Wine and Food Masterclass

For this year's Taste Unlocked masterclass we are exploring the theme:
France and Italy’s relationship through wine, war and food

Join award-winning wine writer, Dr James Flewellen, and Cordon Bleu-educated cook and food journalist, Jonell Galloway, in the stunning medieval French city of Chartres for four days of delicious food, delectable wine and stimulating discussion.


Over group discussions, home-cooked meals from heritage recipes and expert wine tutorials, we will explore the links between the two great European culinary nations – France and Italy – and how the relationships people had with their food and drink evolved through war and peacetime in the 20th century.
