Join us as we visit the best vineyards in France outside of Bordeaux. We will taste our way around the major wine regions of France - Burgundy, the Loire Valley, the Rhone Valley, Alsace, Languedoc & Roussilon - and sample the fascinating range and variety of delicious wines which they produce.
Starting in the Loire with lively aromatic Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, we'll head northeast to the sunniest place in France ( yes Alsace!) where we'll taste some excellent Riesling or Gerwurztraminer and then south through Burgundy for delicious Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Continuing south we reach the Rhone valley where we will try a spicy Grenache based red. Finally we'll journey into the soft warm climate of the Mediterranean to taste wonderful ripe wines from the Languedoc and Rousilion - currently producing some of the most interesting and best value wines in France.
It will be a hugely entertaining evening and you will also pick up a fascinating array of information and wine tips along the way. A great way of learning more about French wine and discovering the variety and value is on offer from the Grande Dame of the wine world.
