A MASTERCLASS IN BARBARESCO
with Aldo Vacca from “Produttori del Barbaresco” in association with Karwig Wines
Wed Oct 26th 7.30pm
If Barolo is the King of Italian wine, then its neighbour Barbaresco is most definitely the Queen. Both made from the same Nebbiolo grape, less than 10 miles apart, and both unquestionably great wines with long ageing potential. Barolo tends to be very masculine in structure, whilst Barbaresco is renowned for being more elegant and refined.
We’re delighted to welcome Aldo Vacco of Produttori del Barbaresco, classed as one of the finest co-ops in Europe, to L’Atitude 51 for a Masterclass in Barbaresco. Aldo will give a presentation and tasting of a variety of wines from the region comparing different single-vineyard sites and looking over past vintages. Hailed by Decanter as a man “who probably knows more about the region than anyone else alive”, this is a tasting not to be missed!
Canapés by L’Atitude 51.
Tickets €18. Booking essential.
Friday 4th November 7.00PM
The most fun way to learn about wine is back, but this time to celebrate Rhone Wine Week, we’ll be giving it a little Rhone twist with grape varieties most commonly associated with the Rhone
Here’s a little about the event: (note: this is not a speed-dating event) ;-) It is open to anyone who likes wine, socializing, having fun and enjoys a challenge.
Here’s how it works: we teach you the basics of how to taste wine and then it’s over to you – you taste 6 wines over the course of the evening – but you’ll be on the move: a different table, a different wine, different co-tasters. And here’s the fun part…..you taste all the wines blind (i.e. we won’t tell you what each wine is) - it’s up to you to work with your co-tasters to try to guess based on the information provided at the start. There’s a prize for the person who correctly identifies all 6 wines.
Price €30pp - includes reception, introduction to wine tasting, speed tasting & nibbles.
