The Graves region is the closest to Bordeaux and offers a wonderful mix of superb red, white and sweet wines. No other area in the region offers such variety and yet Graves is often left in the shadow of the more famous communes such as Pauillac and Margaux and the wines of Saint Emilion and Pomerol.
Our exploration will take us to the high quality appellation of Pessac-Léognan – home to the classed growth wines, as well as Sauternes and Barsac and we may even nip across the river to show what Cadillac is capable of.
An impressive array of top wines will be tasted.
The whites will showcase Sauvignon and Semillon at their most impressive and expressive. White Bordeaux is highly underrated and deserves more attention.
Red Graves are highly influenced by the gravelly, well drained soil and both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot thrive.
Sauternes and Barsac need no introduction and the quality bar gets higher and higher.
As always, Bacco will provide a superb meal designed to complement all the different styles of wine.
Fine wine tasting dinners are hosted by Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, and also runs the monthly Richmond and Teddington Wine Societies. He is a fervent advocate that wine is to be enjoyed without snobbery. Whether you are a complete novice or an experienced taster, there will be plenty to learn and enjoy.
