Join us for an evening devoted to the vinous delights that the Loire Valley has to offer. This tasting event will provide you with the perfect introduction to the wines of a perennially underrated region – from the racy whites of Muscadet, Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, to the complex reds of Bourgeuil and Saumur.

We will begin the evening by exploring the dry whites produced from Melon de Bourgogne, Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc, before encountering reds made from Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. The tasting will conclude with the chance to try an aged sweet Vouvray from one of the region’s most famous names – Domaine Huet.
