ely wine tasting evenings April / May 2014

alsace Italy rhone

Each week a guest speaker will present a selection of wines from the given region and we’ll serve up a supper dish to match.
All wine tastings take place at ely bar & brasserie and start at 7pm sharp.

Thursday April 17th – Wines of the Northern Rhone
The wines of the Southern Rhone may be more recognised- Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Cotes du Rhone etc. – but anyone in the know will tell you that all the excitement is up North. Sensational whites, many of which remain just below the radar for most of us, are matched by outstanding reds- this is the spiritual home of Syrah! This is undoubtedly a ‘fine wine’ region, producing some of the greatest wines in France, without ever reaching the astronomical price tags of some other French region. It is a wine lovers dream!

Thursday May 22nd – Alsace
This is quite possibly the most interesting and varied white wine producing region in the world. Home to a wide range of grape varieties, many with the potential to produce wines of Grand Cru status. Add to that some of the world’s greatest sweet wines. However, Alsace still suffers from being misunderstood, much the same as Germany. While there are many Germanic influences, the wines of Alsace are utterly unique and deserve your utmost attention!
