Alsace and Germany Online
Following on from some of our tours of classic wine regions we now move onto two areas that sometimes get overlooked, but are a real treat for wine lovers; Alsace in Eastern France and Germany.
Over the course of three weeks we will sample six fantastic wines from these two regions. We have three wines from Alsace, all at Grand Cru level, plus two fantastic German Rieslings and to round it off a German Pinot Noir, which goes by its German name of Spätburgunder.
This is a an opportunity to taste some fine wines from these areas and if you like aromatic white wine in particular then you are in for a real treat.
This is the first time Shropshire Wine School have presented 6 wines of this quality level from these two regions.
Over three weeks, Gary will talk you through these wines (2 per evening), explaining the subtle differences that come from the local terroir, wine making techniques and vintage variations.
Gary will be hosting an interactive Zoom online session for 1 hour (over 3 Friday evenings) limited to just 12 subscriptions to allow everyone to ask questions and participate in the session.

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.
