World Merlot Tasting at Christos' House

  • Jan 11, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • Christos' House

Merlot is one of the most widely planted red grape varieties in the world. It typically produces soft, fruity wines with supple tannins which are easy to drink, but the best examples can age for many years. Merlot thrives best in moderate climates and in 'heavier' soils that retain moisture, but it will produce a range of styles and qualities depending on where it is planted.

After a couple of bottles of Merlot Rose to wet our palates we will taste a further 10 Merlots from all around the world - countries will include the usual suspects like Chile, California and South Africa, but also some less obvious ones like Spain, Italy and Romania. And of course there will be something from Bordeaux which is the world's number one Merlot area.

During the tasting a selection of breads, fine cheeses, pates and more will be served, and with almost 3/4 of a bottle per head the cost is just £20 per person!

The nearest tube is North Acton on the Central line.
