French Flag

Wine is such an integral part to French culture and the country has a long history of wine production, with fantastic wines from regions such as Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and Loire Valley.

The proportion of land used for viticulture in France is expansive, and the quality of wine produced is widely acknowledged to be amongst the best in the world.

Rioja

Rioja is as age-worthy as the wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, yet it flies under the radar compared to its more well-known peers. This means that a stellar bottle of age-worthy Rioja bought for far less than a bottle of Bordeaux or Burgundy.

Come and join us and discover the age-worthy wines of Rioja, in all their glory from white to red, sparkling and even rose. This will be a fantastic tasting and we are sure you will walk away a little more inspired to drink more wines from this world class wine region.
