full bottles of 3 x portions of British cheese tasting notes access to our exclusive zoom tasting event with sommeliers George Bergier and Nick Fildes
It often gets mentioned about George’s favourite regions, but rarely does Nick get a say (sorry GB haha) and in Piemonte we might’ve....in fact, we definitely have found his favourite. Having been brought up on strong Italian red wine and glamorous mid-90’s Gazzetta Football Italia, our favourite European peninsula has always been close to Fildesy’s heart but when you scratch under the surface you realise that it isn’t all about la dolce vita and perfect salon-quality hair, the produce if sensational. The region itself is known for some of Italy’s great ingredients and cuisine and then there’s the vino. Ahhhh Barolo, the King Of Wines - and it would appear that today is your lucky day because Barolo is one of the wines we shall be having a nosey through. An event not to be missed as we let George and Nick regale you with tales of Savoy summer homes, pasta with the Juventus squad and covert Westminster war-rooms wine quaffing.
