Wine Nights

Have you ever wanted to explore the wines of celebrated regions and learn about what lies behind them?

Canterbury Wine School is delighted to run a series of Wine Nights highlighting the wines of renowned areas. Each evening we will taste 8 wines and enjoy tapas-style plates in order to appreciate the food friendliness of the wine. The tastings will be presented by Clive Barlow MW and we will start pouring at 7.30 pm and run through to 9 pm. The food will be presented toward the end of evening. The cost for the evening is £35.00 per  person, a double ticket will cost £65.00.

Thursday 30th January  Duero/Douro wine evening                                                     Location: Café du Soleil, 5 Pound Lane, Canterbury CT 2 8AA

A chance to taste your way through the wines of the longest Iberian wine river. There will be classics such as Ribera del Duero and the Douro reds plus whites from Rueda and Portugal. The major red grape is the Tempranillo and we will see how the different terroirs of the river effect the final wines. The cost of the evening, wines and food is £35.00/person or £65.00 for 2 people.

Wednesday 4th March  Rhone Valley wine evening                                                       Location: Café du Soleil, 5 Pound Lane, Canterbury CT2 8AA

This evening will feature the great Syrah and Grenache based reds of both the North and Southern Rhone and we will explore the growing number of white and rosé wines too. This is a great chance to compare the north and south of the region as well as tasting the different characters of the wines in each area. The cost of the evening, wines and food is £ 35.00/person or £65.00 for 2 people.
Thursday 26th March Saone Valley wine evening                                                                  Location: Café du Soleil, 5 Pound Lane, Canterbury CT2 8AA

This evening will feature the wines from the western part of the Saone Valley, which is really a way of us creating a tenuous link to rivers and wine and the region of Burgundy. The southern part of Burgundy lies in the Saone Valley and we will use this connection to look at the wines from across the wider Burgundy region. So, hold onto your hats as we taste from Chablis to Macon and from prime Beaujolais Cru to the Cotes de Nuits. Clive will be joined on this evening by Sean Burbridge, life-long lover of Burgundy, of the wine merchants Bancroft Wines. Given that we will enjoy some star wines from this pricey region we have had to charge a little more for the evening and the cost of the evening, wines and food is £ 45.00 per person.
