Not your average virtual wine tasting… Five wines. Five regions. One hour to identify them… This blind wine tasting with the Carousel restaurant team steers clear of the well-trodden path and focuses instead on some lesser known but no less excellent grape varieties from independent wine makers who love their job nearly as much as we do. BS- and sulphite free.
When you open your parcel from us, you’ll find a white, an orange (if you’re wondering WTF an orange wine is then you’ve come to the right place), two reds and something sweet inside. The individual glass bottles are unlabelled so you can have a bit of fun working out which one’s the Tuscan ciliegiolo – “not overly serious, but seriously good” as our restaurant manager Gigi likes to say – and which one’s the Basque cartoixa vermeil. You will also learn how to say cartoixa vermeil…
Good wines deserve good snacks, so we’re also sending you homemade sourdough crackers, some British cheeses from our friends at Neal’s Yard Dairy, a seasonal chutney and plenty of pickles (because, pickles…).
If you want to nerd out about soil pH or malolactic fermentation, this one probably isn’t for you. What we’re offering is the chance for you to discover some rather fantastic wines that you won’t have tried before, to ask as many dumb questions as you can think of and to kick back for an hour in a relaxed setting with a glass in one hand and a cracker in the other.
