Romanian Wine - Online
A new era is dawning for everyone involved in classrooms and events. Using modern technology, we can enjoy learning about our favourite wines (and gin) from the comfort and safety of our own homes. This has the added advantage that nobody needs to be the “designated driver”. Using Zoom video conferencing is just like being in the room with Gary, who will, as ever educate, inform and entertain you for about an hour.
All sessions will be recorded and if you can't attend at the last minute just let us know so you can go through the event at your convenience later.
Why not invite your friends to make it a truly social experience?
Tonight we visit a country that is one of the oldest of wine produces and uses a technique that has almost been forgotten that is now enjoying a revival.
Romania produced lots of pretty basic wine during the Communist era, but over the last 30 years with considerable investment has proven that this part of Europe is no laggard when it comes to producing top quality wines. Tonight we will sample both a white and a red that will demonstrate that the old approach is long gone.
Firstly, if you’re a fan of German Riesling, we have a treat for you! A wine of searing acidity but with quite a degree of sweetness to balance it, combined with Riesling’s wonderfully aromatic and distinctive nose.
Next, a grape that many people have never heard of, Blaufrankisch. Austrian in origin, this historic black grape produces wines of real style. This example has been matured in French oak for 12 months and displays both red and black fruits alongside a decent amount of acidity and soft tannins.
All YOU have to do is purchase a ticket from the Shropshire Wine School website by clicking the "BOOK" button below, as you would normally. A ticket entitles ALL members of your household to join in. There is no need to buy one ticket per person. Once your ticket purchased, you will receive a confirmation email with your ZOOM web link and password 2 days before the event itself.
For the wines you have a choice. You are welcome to pop out and buy wines of this style from wherever you usually buy wine from. Alternatively, we have teamed up with Momentum Wines of Oswestry who can supply the exact same wine as I will be uncorking.
