A great way to start Christmas with this wine tasting evening in a festively decorated Guildhall.
George Unwin from Baythorne Wines will be joining us for an evening that promises to be quite a voyage of discovery for those who are keen to explore the world of wine. There will be no fewer than 20 wines open to taste throughout the evening, encompassing a wide range of styles and price points from many wine producing countries around the world. The wines will be open to taste at your leisure, and during the evening George will be presenting two wine masterclasses for those keen to learn a little bit more.
The two 15 - 20 minute masterclasses:
At 8.00pm – Exploring Italy’s Indigenous Grapes
At 8.50pm – Modern New World Classics
A bargain ticket price of £17.50 that includes canapés
George opened Baythorne Wines in 2014 as part of a new development at Baythorne Hall (situated on the A1017 between Clare and Haverhill) that includes a Cookery School and Dining & Events Venue. He has well over a decade’s experience in the wine trade, which began at Lay & Wheeler’s retail store in Colchester, Wheeler Cellars, soon after he left University. He remained with the Wheeler family as they developed The Wine Company, as the head of Private Sales, until he decided to set up his own wine business. In its short two year existence Baythorne Wines has established a reputation as one of the leading regional merchants, with a range of over 300 wines from around the world. George’s particular passion is finding wines that are a little out of the ordinary, most commonly from small family run estates and which offer exceptional value for money. Some of his favourite finds will be open to taste on 2nd December.
