Fine Wine Tasting with Dinner – Giro d’Italia @ Bacco
Mar 19 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Fine Wine Tasting with Dinner - Giro d'Italia @ Bacco | England | United Kingdom

Our March masterclass will focus on the extraordinary depth and breadth of Italian Fine Wines.

Our Grand Tour will encompass some of Italy’s best known wine regions and focus on some iconic Italian names.

There will be sublime whites from Friuli, Veneto and Alto Adige, fabulous reds from Piedmont, Tuscany, Campania and Puglia and stunning dessert wine from Sicily.

Producers will be a Who’s Who of great Italian names including Pieropan, Livio Felluga, Fontodi and Donnafugata to name but four.

This will be a fabulous, unmissable Italian wine celebration – all washed down with a delicious four course Italian dinner from Bacco who will create a range of regional dishes to complement the experience.

Fine wine tasting dinners are an opportunity to try more expensive wines than at our regular tastings at Richmond and Teddington, and Bacco always produces a fabulous meal.

Richmond Wine Society – Rioja vs Ribera @ The Britannia Pub
Mar 26 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Richmond Wine Society - Rioja vs Ribera @ The Britannia Pub

We head to Northern Spain for a battle of the giants as we compare and contrast some of the top wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero.

These two areas are the best known in Spain, with Rioja the powerhouse of the Spanish wine economy and Ribera – not intimidated by scale – producing extremely high quality wines.

Tempranillo is the key grape but others, including Cabernet Sauvignon, also play supporting roles and we will examine the differences in terroir as well as explore the classifications of Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva.

We will inevitably need to dive into the debate about Traditional vs Modern winemaking approaches, but most importantly we will taste a fabulous range of wines from top estates.

The Britannia will create an authentic two course Spanish dinner to accompany our Spanish adventure.
