Rhone Valley and the Languedoc at Averys on Wednesday 30th August 2017Posted on: 30 Aug 2017
Prepare your palates and get ready for your taste buds to enjoy a serious (and rather delicious) education at Averys in Bristol when it hosts its Rhone Valley and the Languedoc wine tasting event on Wednesday 30th August 2017.
Taking place from 7-9pm, Bristol's superlative wine-based institution will host an evening supping and sharing the wines of Northern and Southern Rhone and a few particular favourites from the Languedoc region.
Covering the broad range of styles from the lighter tones of Syrah right through to the more striking, bolder varietals from the north, it will also give the city's wine connoisseurs the opportunity to sample a libation or two of some of the south of France's great value wines.
A seated event, there will also be a selection of cheeses from the Arch House Deli especially paired up to compliment the wines. Eight wines will be tasted throughout the event with each one's history and provenance being explained by a wine enthusiast - designed, you can be reassured, for all levels of palate and appreciation, from the keen amateur to the confident wine-sipping pro with a cellar the size of Swindon.
If there's anything you particularly like then there will be discount on all the wines sampled during the course of the night, including free delivery on orders consisting of six bottles or more (and if you're a true enthusiast, surely six bottles should be the absolute minimum level of libation).
Tickets are £30 and are available online here.
Averys is located at Averys Cellars, 9 Culver Street, Bristol, BS1 5LD. Tel. 0117 3008333
