History of Wine with Red Wine the Americas - Online
From the comfort and safety of your own home, join us via Zoom as we taste our way around 4 of the biggest wine producing countries in the world! There is a catch on this though…Red Wines Only!
We’re tasting 3 different wines each evening and learning a little bit about the history of wine from that country.
We’ve chosen the wines we (Neil and Sam your hosts for this event) will be tasting and, where we can made use of the current discount at Waitrose – please check the website, some are cheaper than show below.
Of course, you don’t have to buy all the wines and you don’t have to go to Waitrose but who doesn’t love a bargain?
So, a little bit of history, some delicious red wine and lots of fun all via Zoom.
Week 4 - 27th November – Red Wine of the Americas
Why is Argentina famed for Malbec? The grapes originated in France and brought over by the French Huguenots planting some of the first vineyards in Florida as early as the 1560s. Settlers continued planting vines all up and down the East coast and took cuttings with them as they expanded. But Chile is a little different, dates back to the 16th century and the time of the Spanish conquest. The first vines were planted at that time from stock brought on ships from Spain.
