With this exclusive offer from Rewarding Times we are offering a wine tasting evening for two people, including supper. Also, as an added gift ely are offering two gift cards to the value of €15 each to use on your next visit to any of the ely restaurants.
The wine tasting evenings at ely are a relaxed, fun and sociable way to expand your knowledge of the world of wines. At ely, they believe that wine is all about enjoyment, and that a better understanding of where a wine is from, and how it is made, leads to a more enjoyable drinking experience. Their wine tasting evenings are a perfect way to explore new and exciting grape varieties, classic wines styles and up and coming regions. All of this is done in an easy-going and entertaining manner, and makes for a great night out! The tasting includes a supper dish chosen to complement the wines being tasted.
Their wine tastings take place in the stunning 200yr old vaults of ely Bar & Brasserie, winner of the Best Wine Experience Award at the Food & Wine awards last year.
Some of the tastings coming up are:
Italian Reds – Italy is justifiably famed for the red wines it produces, and in particular those made from the native varieties. Grapes such as Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and Negroamaro are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the wonderfully diverse range of Italian reds.
The Wines of the Languedoc - Not the most famous wine region in France, but probably the most interesting and certainly the best value. A massive range of reds, ranging from restrained and elegant to ripe, spicy and bold, are complemented by some very interesting and surprising whites. This is a wine region that needs to be explored!
A world of whites – In her most recent book, top wine writer Jancis Robinson profiled 1,368 different grape varieties, of which, over 500 were white. With that in mind, we’ve decided to temporally put aside the more familiar varieties, and have a look at some of the up –and-coming grapes and white wine styles that we reckon will make it big this year!
Australia ! – The wine fortunes of Australia have gone from the high to low and back again. Our love of rich, spicy velvety Shiraz is equalled only but our collective shunning of big oaky, creamy Chardonnays. But no wine producing country is as quick to adapt as the Aussies. So where are they now? We’ll taste our way across the continent- looking at the very best that modern Australia has to offer.
