World of Wine - Germany, Alsace, Austria & England

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wines tasting of Alsace, Germany & UK. Time to discover the aromatics of Europe!

"Discovering Germany & Austria was a real eye-opener! Discover some great wines & food matches" (Nick Beecroft, Oct 2017)

Part One – Alsace

Alsace in eastern France lies on the border of Germany and is as German as it is French in terms of population, architecture and its’ grape varieties. Germanic Riesling and Gewurztraminer are found here side-by-side with French Pinot Blanc and Gris all adding to a small-but-complex wine producing region offering the most aromatic and different styles in comparison to the rest of France. It unusual, its unique, its great. We will try the wonderful Gewurztraminer with the local cheese, Munster, with grated red pepper and honey.

Part Two – Germany, Austria & UK

Forget Germany of the past (wine-wise). The UK used to be inundated with mainly sweet, sugary wines from Germany (e.g. Liebfraumilch) but now is dominated by dry, acidic and mineral-led wines from Riesling, Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder) and Pinot Gris (Grauburgunder) and the complex and wondrous Pinot Noirs (Spatburgunder). It’s a country with a well-guarded secret of amazing wines, something we’ll have to investigate. We'll also try a dry English white and an Austrian Gruner Veltliner.

All tastings include; minimum of 7 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet, use of professional tastings glasses and nibbles.
