South West France Wines Masterclass
DARE TO BE DIFFERENT
Join Joanna Simon, wine & food editor’s chair at House & Garden magazine, to discover an extraordinary diversity of wine styles and flavours from the South West of France.
The masterclass will showcase 10 different South West French wines from denominations including Comté Tolosan, Côtes de Gascogne, Gaillac, Fronton, Saint Mont, Cahors, Madiran, Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh , made with indigenous grapes varieties including Tannat, Pinenc, Négrette, Mauzac, Colombard, Gros and Petit Manseng and Petit Courbu.
Joanna has chosen each wine as a worthy alternative to more familiar names, and the tasting will seek to demonstrate their quality, food-matching credentials, and also what makes them dare to be different.
The class is free of charge but the spaces are limited.
