Rare Grapes: Resurrection

Thursday 1st April, 8pm

So many wines are made from the same small band of so-called international grape varieties, but the long history of viticulture has left a legacy of rare grape varieties that are often isolated, purely local and hidden from view. In honour of Easter we are celebrating the renaissance of some of these ancient grapes and putting the spotlight on three wines that capture the unique and vivid flavours of grapes that come from off the beaten track. We start with a luminous grillo from ancient vines near Syracuse in the South of Sicily before hopping over to the Mountainous region of Naoussa in Northern Greece for a unique, herb scented xinomavro rosé. Finally we take wing to Tenerife to try a rich mature red from listan negro and negramoll that would be a worthy companion to Easter lamb.
