If you love Bordeaux wines, but not the price tag, then the Southwest region of France is calling your name!

Many wines from the Southwest of France have a similar style to those from Bordeaux in varietal, wine making techniques and exceptional quality. Known as the “hidden corner,” Sud Ouest France is a gorgeous little known wine region tucked away between the Pyrenees Mountains and Spain to the South, Bordeaux to the North and the Atlantic Ocean on the West.

It has some unique grape varieties and interesting climates that make it an incredible wine region to explore, and we’re taking you along for the ride!

Our WSET Diploma accredited wine experts will take you au sud for an in-depth, two hour tasting, kicking off with a crisp and elegant glass of Les Frères Laffitte Sauvignon Blanc et Gros Manseng, followed by a Château de La Liquière Cistus Blanc - a seriously aromatic white that has been aged in new oak for six months.

Staying in the Languedoc region, we'll move onto a Domaine la Colombette Rosé, like summer in a glass. Then onto Cahors, where we'll try a 2019 La Pierre Malbec from Château les Croisille. Unlike any Malbec you've tasted, with heaps of crunchy fruit.

Our next wine will be a Domaine Terres Georges Racine Carignan from Pays de l'Aude, made with 70-year old Carignan vines. This wine has extremely low yields and we only ever get a handful of bottles per year! Topping off the evening with the Château de La Liquière Cistus Rouge. Chocolate, pencil shavings and dried thyme - the perfect finisher.
Whilst enjoying the tasting, you'll also be tucking into a fantastic feast of award-winning cheeses, charcuterie and fresh sourdough bread. Magnifique!

What’s included? 

  • Sparkling welcome reception 

  • Guided tasting of six glorious wines, all from small, sustainable producers in the Southwest of France 

  • An impeccable spread of award-winning cheeses, charcuterie, and sourdough bread 

  • Tastings cost £55 and are for two hours 

Whether you’re a wine novice or a seasoned expert, anyone and everyone is welcome. There’s no complicated wine lingo, slideshows, or boring presentations. Our wine tastings are all about having fun and enjoying fantastic wine with great company.

We source the best sustainable biodynamic and organic wines from small, family run producers from all over the world. Our events bridge the gap between wine drinker and wine maker, so we can share their amazing stories and experiences with you.
