The Wonderful World of Alsace
Wednesday 22 April, 7pm – £40 per guest
A highly disputed wine territory between France and Germany, the Alsace region has become synonymous for its highly aromatic, floral and spicy wines. Dominant by 100% grape varietals rather than the traditional French ‘blends’, this area is most famously known for its elegant, dry Riesling wines, off-dry Pinot Gris and luscious, rich Gewurztraminer. Join us and explore some of our favourite aromatic styles from the region paired with their perfect small plate.

Showcasing a wide range of printmaking techniques such as lino, wood cuts, collagraphs, screen printing and etching, the exhibition will give audiences the opportunity to get up and close to the work to discover works of art which examines the beauty of the natural and man-made world.
