The Society’s next Winemaker Live Zoom event is occurring this Saturday (25th April) at 10am.
Saturday is Anzac Day, an important day in the diary where Australia and New Zealand commemorate those who have served their country in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
To mark this day, we are hosting Australian winemaker Mac Forbes in a special Live Zoom Tasting.
Mac is one of the genuine nice guys of the wine trade and has kindly offered to spend time with us sharing his journey with wine that has seen him work around the world. Not only does Mac make brilliant wines focusing on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir under his own label, but he is also responsible for our exclusive Blind Spot range where he seeks out interesting and exciting parcels of grapes all over Australia.
He will no doubt give insights into his current range of wines and will take any questions you may have. Whether that be on his views on the cork vs screwcap debate, how he and his friends have been affected by the devastating bushfires and how the Australian wine industry might respond to the Covid 19 pandemic.
The virtual tasting is part of our Winemaker Virtual Events series where we bring some of the finest winemakers in the world to your loungeroom, garden or home office. Whether you have a glass of wine from the producer or not, we encourage you to log on and be part of the conversation.
This virtual tasting will commence at 10am on Saturday 25th April. This early start is due to the time difference between us here in the UK and Mac in Victoria, Australia but if you happen to have a bottle of one of Mac’s off dry Rieslings, I can confirm these are brilliant breakfast wines.
If you are unable to join live, a recording will be made available to view at your own pleasure.
