"Virtual 4-week wine course on lesser-known French wines" 

Starts Friday 22nd of January 2021. 

Hampshire Wine School presents ... 4 weeks on French wines from less well-known regions and grape varieties ... online via Zoom!

Step away Bordeaux, Champagne and Burgundy, and make space for Chinon, Muscadet and Alsace. France has over 400 wine regions, so it’s no surprise that many of the wines we know come from the more famous areas. But that means there are many, many more delights to discover.

Down on Chateauneuf-du-Pape? Try these 8 lesser-known French wines, which are part of our pre-selected case (available to purchase separately from our recommended wine merchant, Frazier's). From Chinon and Banyuls to Picpoul and Pinot Blanc, there are affordable, top-tier wines to be found if you know where to look ... and that's exactly what you shall learn during this super entertaining and extremely educational wine course. All from the comfort of your very own living-room. No more babysitter to pay, no more taxis to book, no more rain to dodge on the way to the venue. Just a safe and convenient way to share good wine in good company.

So spread the word and invite family members, friends, colleagues and hairdressers (I shall miss mine dreadfully during confinement) altogether for a few good laughs amongst wine lovers. A perfect way to socialise safely! ;-)

Here are the wines we shall taste on the night (2 wines per tasting evening):

  • The Loire Valley revisited: Muscadet (sur lie) and Chinon (Cabernet Franc)
  • Burgundy and South-Western France revisited: Aligote and a Merlot/Tannat blend
  • The South of France revisited: Picpoul de Pinet and Banyuls (sweet Grenache)
  • Alsace revisited: Pinot Blanc and a Cremant (sparkling Pinot Blanc & Auxerrois)

This course shall run on 4 consecutive Fridays, starting with Friday 22nd of January 2021, 7.30pm-9pm, via Zoom. No previous tasting experience is necessary ... just an open mind and a thirst for knowledge required! We shall also discuss food pairings and recommend recipes for the food lovers amongst us.
