'The Magic of Veneto' at Bookham Wine Club


On 14th February 2022 I am presenting. 'The Magic of Veneto' for the Bookham Wine Club. Of all the twenty wine regions in Italy, Veneto is the one that has everything. The glory of Venice, the romance of Verona, the unrivalled beauty of Lake Garda and the backdrop of the Dolomites. History lives on in many of the wines produced today, but this is also a region of innovation. True, some of the wines made here by the large cellars are simple everyday fare, but then there are amazing wines from family estates such as Accordini and Bertani including the inimitable Ripassos, Reciotos and Amarones. Veneto is also an area of Italy with long experience of international varieties that provide a vivid contrast to the classic local grapes. This tasting will comprise wines both traditional and modern, including a Recioto, Ripassso and Amarone.

Taking place in Great Bookham, Surrey, the tasting is already heavily subscribed. It may still be possible to attend as a guest. Please email the organiser on the link below..
