“Amber Revolution” – Tasting with Simon J Woolf
May 15, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$40.00
Orange wines, skin-contact wines, amber wines? What are they all about and why is there such a buzz for them at the moment? The technique is ancient, but the hype is new and fast growing.
Who better to talk us through what it’s all about than Simon J Woolf, author of “Amber Revolution, how the world learned to love orange wine”, The world’s first book to tell the full, forgotten story of orange wines – white wines made like a red, fermented with their skins.
Simon J. Woolf is an award-winning wine and drinks writer. He is somewhat obsessed with orange wines and is considered to be the expert on the developing natural wine niche.
The best wine books are those where the author demonstrates three important qualities: a passion for the subject at hand, a deep understanding of the topic and an inviting writing style. Even from the opening few pages of Amber Revolution, it is obvious that Simon J Woolf has all three of these in abundance..
Learn about the backstory – the many millennia of history in Georgia, the traditions in Friuli and Slovenia. Discover how these wines are made, why they taste different, where to buy & how to enjoy. Includes food matching tips and a guide to 180 top producers worldwide.
A light supper will be served on the evening.
