FULLY BOOKED - Masterclass: The Cream of the Crop with Nyetimber

The Oxford Wine Company Shop, 6 Turl Street, Oxford OX1 3DQ Wednesday, 26 June 6.45 for 7.00pm £30.00 Presented by Matt Gay and Zoe Dearsley - venue TURL STREET

This tasting is now fully booked. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please contact tastings@oxfordwine.co.uk.

At this point, English Sparkling Wine has made its name on the world stage. And leading the pack is Nyetimber. The first vines were planted at their Sussex site thirty years ago, and ever since they have pursued the excellence English Sparkling wine is capable of.

Winemaker Cherie Briggs last year became the first person born outside of France and the first woman to win the IWC’s Sparkling Winemaker of the Year award. She and her husband Brad Greatrix have pushed the quality of Nyetimber – and indeed English Sparkling wine - to new heights.

Join us in the Turl Street cellar for a masterclass style tasting which will cover the very best of what Nyetimber has to offer. We’ll show a single vintage of the Classic Cuvée, the Blanc de Blancs 2013, and the Tillington Single Vineyard. The highlight of the night, however, will most certainly be the new 1086 duo – a white and rosé (on the shelf at £150 and £175 respectively) which now top the Nyetimber range and are two of the most ambitious English sparkling wines on the market today.

This promises to be a real insight into the best that English wine has to offer – we’ll see you there!

In 1831 Bernard Bichot founded a wine trading business in Burgundy. Almost two centuries later, the business is still in the family and continues to play the role of a traditional Burgundian négociant. They have spent years identifying the best grapes and wines, and building relationships with the local vignerons, making sure that every bottle that bears the Bichot family crest provides the very best quality possible.

Despite this long history, Maison Bichot is a forward thinking company. They have acquired several of their own vineyards over time, affording them full control over their products – from vine to bottle. All their own vineyards are farmed organically, with a view to preserving their precious terroir for future generations.

Join us for a tasting in the Turl Street cellar, where Delphine de la Fouchardière of Maison Bichot will be taking us through six wines which demonstrate the diversity of terroir that makes Burgundy one of the world’s most famous fine wine regions.

Karim Mussi is one of Argentina’s most highly regarded winemakers, and the man behind Altocedro. Located in the prime viticultural region of the Uco Valley, the estate uses sustainable practices to produce limited quantities of terroir-driven wines. Vineyard health and minimal interventions are key concepts for Mussi, and the quality of wine he produces speaks volumes.

In the words of Wine Spectator: ‘Altocedro represents real artisanal winemaking, a boutique operation with some serious talent behind the wheel’

We are lucky enough to have Karim Mussi himself visiting us at Turl Street, showing a range of six of his wines. Join us – we’re already getting excited!

Portugal? That’s where Port comes from isn’t it? Well yes, but this extraordinary country produces a bewildering array of fine unfortified wines as well that are made from all sorts of weird and wonderful grape varieties we’ve never heard of. But everyone’s talking about the amazing value for money wines that you can find from Portugal – and as the saying goes:

“If you don’t recognize the grape variety on a Portuguese wine label, it’s a good thing.”

Because Portugal’s wine culture developed in relative isolation, there are many grape varieties that do not grow anywhere else in the world. So, if you don’t recognize the grape variety on a Portuguese wine label, don’t worry – that’s normal! All told, there are over 250 indigenous varieties that thrive in the hot Portuguese weather, and are just delicious. To the wine trade, Portugal is the last frontier of wine in Western Europe; there is still so much to be tasted and explored. So with all the excitement that this region offers, let’s let the foremost importer and expert on Portuguese wines, Raymond Reynolds, take us through a delicious range of some of the best wines that Portugal has to offer, and learn something about this intriguing wine country in the process!

Cheers,

Theo
