Wednesday 9th September 6.30pm to 8pm Burgundy is perhaps the most enticing wine regions for the enthusiast, having so many artisanal producers creating great wines albeit in limited quantities. In this session we will focus on the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes in many expressions, from Chablis through to Macon, and some great bottles from areas such as Gevrey-Chambertin and Vosne-Romanee. This wine school is one for the lover of classic wines.

Grand Cru - The best of the best. There are 32 Grand Cru vineyards in Burgundy, accounting for less than 2% of all Burgundy wine production. Grand Cru wines mention on the label only the producer and name of the vineyard, as in “Montrachet” or “Musigny”. The name of the village is not deemed necessary in the case of these great vineyards. This is a unique event at The Vineyard; the first time that we have raided our cellar to show off some of our very best wines. Often referred to as “the holy grail” of wine producing regions, this will be a dinner not to be missed!
