Tuscany and Central Italy is the theme for the first tastings in the Richmond and Teddington Wine Society calendars. The top class wines of Tuscany are well known and loved but there are many, superb gems to be found in Umbria, Marche, Abruzzo and Lazio. Italy is a constant joy and delight and this tasting will give a great insight into some of the lesser known wines. For those coming on my Umbria tours it will be a bit of a sneak preview. I still have places left on some of the tours – get in touch if you would like to attend.
RWS – 28th & 29th January
TWS – 6th February
We had the most amazing dinner with friends on Saturday. Having taken along some Pinot Gris 2012 Greywacke, Marlborough – one of my most favourite wines from the tours, our hosts unexpectedly brought out the 2011 of the same wine to go with our trio of Amuse Bouche. Utterly delicious and made by Kevin Judd – a wine legend.
