The price includes 3 x full bottles of left-bank Bordeaux and a selection of matching nibbles (including cheese, cured meats and homemade fingerfood food), tasting notes and access to our exclusive zoom tasting event with sommeliers George Bergier and Nick Fildes as well as special guest Alexia Becq, a wine tourism specialist from the Societe du Chateau Bouscaut.
It is designed to be shared between at least two people.
A fantastic way to start 2021 the way you mean to go on! Drinking beautiful wine and sharing an evening with other people!
Toward the end of 2020 we hosted a Bordeaux tasting profiling three lovely wines from both left and right bank. George loves this region and after a couple of hours listening to us and toasting with us, so did the audience. Bordeaux is synonymous with class, sophistication, style and real substance. We probably had more oohs and aahs that night than any other since we started these events.
For this event we are delighted to be joined by Alexia Becq, Wine Tourism manager for Chateau Bouscaut and the Bordeaux region in general. We will try 3 bottles from the Pessac-Leognan area on the left-bank (don't worry we will explain what this means). 3 different styles, all delicious and all ready to make you a Bordeaux lover if you aren't already.
Lockdown just got better. Right now. Just add it to your cart. It might just change your perception of Bordeaux for ever.
At the Chop Houses we are blessed with the expertise of Manchester's Top Sommelier Mr George Bergier and his protégé Mr Nick Fildes. As well as the city's best wine list. As recognised by our unprecedented 4 Wine Spectator Awards and The Guardian.
It seems a shame to keep that talent and quality locked away.
Our virtual tastings give you the chance to sample beautiful, award-winning & rare wines, guided by George & Nick and their industry leading palates. The experience is intimate, fun and unique. You get the chance to engage with some incredible produce and some incredible talent.
This is not just some wine & some cheese.
Each wine is a truly beautiful example. From some of the world's most esteemed producers and regions. Variety is the spice of life, and this range of wines embodies this.
Your order will be delivered a day before the event.
Make sure you refrigerate your whites, leave your reds in a cool room (18/19 degrees is ideal) and take the food out of the fridge at least an hour before the event.

We will also sometimes provide you with nibbles and mezze style dishes produced right here in our own kitchens using our Best of British produce. For vegetarians we supply dishes such as homemade black pea hummus, mushroom pates and homemade breads.
