Wine Club Shiraz Tasting
23 February 2023
February's Wine Club will take you on a prestigious tour of vineyards as they compare wines made from old wines, and wines made from younger vines. With a line-up of six bold, delicious Australian reds, our hosts have chosen a selection of bottles that will take you on a viticulture tour of prestigious vineyards and talented winemakers.
This month's guest speaker is Dr. Gregory Dunn, the head of the Wine Division at Plumpton College and a botanist and viticulturalist with decades of experience in the field.
You will be greeted at the door with a glass of Plumpton Estate wine and enjoy an evening of knowledge and fun. Light local nibbles from the One Garden Brighton Restaurant are included and all attendees will enjoy a 15% discount on any Plumpton Estate wines purchased.
No previous experience is necessary. Wine enthusiasts of all levels are welcome to learn in our relaxed environment.
There will also be a free bus service from Falmer train station to One Garden Brighton which you can book via the link below.
