Robbie Rugman, Gallo Winery: California

September 12 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
The Raven Hotel, The Raven Hotel
Hook, RG27 9HS United Kingdom

Wine production in California exceeds that of Australia. If the state was a country, it would be the world's fourth largest producer. However, we don't see so many of the wines here in the UK. And when we do, they are often very expensive. Most of the world's most popular varietals are grown in California, including sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir. And the wines are usually of a very high standard. This month we will be welcoming Robbie Rugman, Premium Fine Wine Ambassador for Gallo Winery in California. Wineries featured are expected to include MacMurray in the Russian River region and Louis Martini wines from Sonoma and Napa. Many of these wines retail at £20 to £40 per bottle, so this promises to be an exceptional tasting of Californian wines - and not to be missed!

Alun Griffiths, Master of Wine: Burgundy

Master of Wine Alun Griffiths has been a great friend of our Society for over 20 years and we have always enjoyed the tastings he has presented to us. Alun has recently been working in China, so we haven't seen him for a while. So it will be an absolute pleasure for us to be able to welcome him back this month. One of Alun's speciality regions is Burgundy, so that's what we have asked him to present to us this evening. Burgundy wines do not come cheap, so we've given Alun a much larger budget than usual so that he can show use some of his favourite wines from the region. This is undoubtedly an evening not to be missed!
