As the debate rages on in the US Presidential elections, it’s time to turn your attention to something we can all agree is a popular choice – American wine.
On Friday 25 November, Wivenhoe House’s wonderful sommelier Lionel Lachasseigne, will be taking us on an entertaining and informative journey across the oceans to discover the joys of wine – American style.
His talk and wine tasting will be accompanied by a gastronomic feast including seared loin of tuna and duck two ways, all put together to heighten your appreciation of this evening.
And it’s not all about the Chardonnay, there’s some magnificent Zinfandel, Pinot Noir and even a mysterious Black Muscat that can all be enjoyed by wine connoisseurs.
“Wine production in the United really exploded after the end of Prohibition, “ explained Lionel. “Until the 1970s it was really dominated by Italian wine and that market is still very important to the Americans.
“If you try to steer clear of American wines, I’m here to change your mind. Some of their good wines are tremendous value and there are also some fantastic boutiqueones that deserve better acclaim.”
And of course, there will be the quiz to end all quizzes!
