Wine tasting event: Thursday 18th March, 7pm

Enjoy these classic wines at your exclusive BBC Good Food virtual tasting event

Join us on Thursday 18th March at 7pm where we’ll be guided by resident wine expert, Grant Hedley as he discusses each of the wines in this magnificent trio.

Learn the fundamentals of choosing and tasting the right wine and discover the romance between wine and food. Plus, discover how your senses can alter your perception of the wines with fun interactive experiments.

Your exclusive trio includes:

Bees Knees Chenin Viognier
This zesty white is causing quite a buzz with many rave customer reviews. It’s from the talented Gabb family and combines Cape speciality Chenin Blanc with soft, aromatic Viognier. Ripe and racy with irresistible tropical fruit and honeysuckle aromas.

Domaine La Lirande Syrah
Pure Syrah is rarely found in the wines of the Languedoc Roussillon, it’s usually reserved for the pricy reds of the northern Rhône. From the warm, ripe 2019 vintage and vineyards close to Corbièries, this has dark, smoky black fruit and spice.

Roche Lacour de Limoux Rose
An exclusive alternative to rosé Champagne at a fraction of the price. Made in the perfect cool climate of Limoux, in the same exacting manner as vintage Champagne, this is a very fine and distinguished fizz with classic, strawberry scented finesse.
