"Terroir Grapes"- Riesling & Pinot Noir

Geoff Bolton from

The Birmingham Wine School

Many would argue that Riesling and Pinot Noir are the finest grape varieties in the world! They are also known as being brilliant at reflecting where they come from - their terroir. Geoff Bolton - wine educator from the Birmingham Wine School will take us on an exploration of these two famous grape varieties. “If you leave inspired and wanting to know more……and laughing, of course….I have done my job!”

Tuesday, 10th March 2020, 7.30 pm for a 7.45 pm start.

Members £10, Guests £13. Please bring ISO tasting glasses.
