Introduction to Burgundy, Thursday 30th January 2020


With over 100 different appellations, approaching the mammoth that is Burgundy can be a daunting task for newcomers. This tasting is designed to give you a better understanding of the region and how its appellations differ. After a glass of a beautiful Crémant de Bourgogne, you’ll begin with a trio from Chablis with different quality levels – village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru. From here, you’ll move on to a quartet of whites from Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Pouilly-Fuissé. Rounding up the evening, you’ll explore the famous Burgundian reds with examples from Nuits-St Georges, Vosne-Romanée and Gevrey-Chambertin. Hosted by Isabella Cameron, Fine Wine Specialist

Tutored Tastings

Treat yourself, your family or a client to one of our exclusive tutored or walkaround wine tastings. One of our experts will guide you through a range of wines while educating you on the evening’s topic. From blind tastings to producer focusses, these are unmissable chances to broaden your wine knowledge.

At our walkaround tastings, a selection of fascinating wines will be set out for you to explore, with an expert on hand to elucidate on the evening’s theme.

The Napoleon Cellar and the Pickering Cellar provide the perfect venues for your tutored wine tastings.

Sussex cellar is our newest event space with terracotta archways and intimate yet contemporary feel.
