South African Wines with Painted Wolf – Thursday 9 May, 7pm – £35
Pairings is delighted to host Jeremy Borg, owner of Painted Wolf Wines, set up in 2007 with his wife Emma, to produce a stunning array of South African wines. A portion of their proceeds go directly to charity, giving back to the ecosystem by conserving the eponymous and endangered painted wolf. We’ll be tasting a range of wines, including South Africa’s hallmark Pinotage and Chenin Blanc, as well as discussing the winery and it’s philosophies.
Summer Food & Wine Pairings – Wednesday 22 May, 7pm – £35
With summer approaching, we thought that it would be the perfect time for us to discuss and present some classic – and some of our favourite – summer pairings for you to enjoy and to give you a few picnic and party ideas. We’ll be going through six different wines, each paired with food, talking about why they’ll pair, the best places to get them from and how to put together a perfect summer spread!
A Taste of Germany – Tuesday 4 June, 7pm – £35
Germany, like most of Europe, has been growing wines for centuries, but despite producing a huge range of scintillating and unique wines, little is drunk and has an undeservedly low reputation in the UK. Join us and discover an array of delicious wines that demonstrate the history of German wine and the quality that it creates today, paired with a range of delicious foods.
Exploring Tuscany with Antinori – Wednesday 26 June, 7pm – £40
Antinori is currently run by three sisters who represent the 26th generation of the oldest wine family in the world (tracing back to 1385). With their beginnings entangled into the fascinating history of Tuscany, they now have a range of wines around Italy and the rest of the world and have indelibly marked the wine world with their range which includes Tignanello, one of the great Super Tuscan Wines. We are joined by one of their representatives to showcase a delicious array of wines, paired with Italian foods and discuss the great family.
