Online Interactive Wine Tastings: Part 7 Meet the Winemakers

Online Masterclass, Edinburgh

 

'NEW' WINEMAKER SERIES - VIRTUAL WINE TASTINGS

Our next series of virtual tastings will be held in association with Raeburn Fine Wines.  We have organised for two winemakers from Mosel Valley in Germany & Bandol in France to join our next virtual Friday-night sessions to discuss their wines and answer questions.

FRIDAY 3 JULY 2020 6.30PM:  CHRISTOPHER LOEWEN of WEINGUT CARL LOEWEN, MOSEL, GERMANY
Christopher Loewen is one of Germany's new generation of superstars.  He runs his family's 15 hectare estate with his father Karl-Josef.  The estate dates back to 1803 and is currently one of the most under-rated producers in the Middle Mosel.  Their vineyards are spread over four villages in the Mosel valley - more than 50% of the vineyards are ungrafted with very old vines (60-120 yrs) on very steep slopes.  Christopher's wines are super clean, fresh, modern and dry in style - and his Kabinett is made in the style those wines were made four decades ago with lower residual sugar.

Christopher will be joining our virtual tasting to talk about his vineyards and taste through 3 of his wines:

Varidor Riesling Trocken (massale selection) 2015 Weingut Carl Loewen

Maximin Herrenberg '1896' Alte Reben Riesling Trocken 2016 Weingut Carl Loewen

Maximin Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett 2016 Weingut Carl Loewen

 


FRIDAY 10 JULY 2020 6.30PM:  DANIEL RAVIER of DOMAINE TEMPIER, BANDOL, FRANCE
Daniel Ravier is Bandol's most celebrated winemaker.  He has been winemaker at the Peyraud family's Domaine Tempier in Bandol for the last 20 years - and has taken this historic property to new heights.  He makes Bandol's most iconic rose (one of the best roses in the world) - and his red Mourvedre blends are superb.  The Cru Migoua is a single vineyard wine from a nine hectare terraced vineyard surrounded by pine and scrub at Le Beausset, a wine which transports you to the smells and flavours of Provence.  

Daniel will be joining our virtual tasting to talk through 3 of his wines:

Bandol Rose 2018 Domaine Tempier

Bandol Rouge Classique 2012 Domaine Tempier

Bandol Rouge Cru La Migoua 2012 Domaine Tempier
