The first event of 2013, an eight wine tasting from producers in the Southern hemisphere presented by Ben Godfrey, Wine Buyer, followed by three course dinner

Welcome to 2013, Below the Equator - Friday 11th January 2013

We may be experiencing a grey and gloomy winter in the northern hemisphere but head below the equator and you’ll be bathed in wonderful, warming sunshine as summer is in full swing.

For this tasting event we leave the doom and gloom of the British winter behind us and head south to sunnier climes to enjoy the wines of South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and South America.

We’ll be moving away from the heavier wines which we’ve all been enjoying in recent weeks and instead focusing on something a little lighter and more vibrant in style, with a menu to match, and not a turkey sandwich in sight!

Join wine buyer Ben Godfrey for a tasting of eight wines carefully selected from our favourite producers in the southern Hemisphere, followed by three course dinner paired with a selection of wines.

Welcome to 2013, Below the Equator Friday 11th January At The Wine Company | 7.00 for 7.15pm – Carriages at 10:30pm | Smart Casual Eight wine tasting and dinner | £49 per person
