Winetasting with Oz Clarke

Join us for an evening of wine tasting with Oz Clarke, to celebrate the publication of his revised book on English Wines.
One of the great pleasures of wine is to drink it where it is grown and made. The opportunity to meet growers, winemakers and winery owners is what draws people to visit wineries and to ‘have an experience in the vineyard’. This is your essential guide to find out about England and its world beating sparklers and still wines that have captivated the wine world.
The modern view of English wine is of a country amazingly blessed with vast tracts of soil suitable for viticulture, much of it almost indistinguishable from the chalky slopes of Champagne and Chablis, and of a country taking full advantage of the vagaries of climate change to ripen Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to levels perfect for sparkling wine, and increasingly excellent still wines. With Oz as your guide, you will find the best English and Welsh wines, from fizz, whites, some impressive reds and even dessert and orange wines.
It’ll be such a lot of fun to welcome Oz back to Ely!
