12:30pm – Champagne Deutz – the Pinot Noir Heritage. Sorry, Sold Out
Founded in the village of Aÿ in 1838, Deutz is one of the most illustrious Grand Marques, a significant proportion of their production comes from their own vineyards and the top crus of Champagne. The house style is all about finesse and precision, with wines of beautiful purity. One of only a handful of houses to use only the most delicate first-press juice, around 40% of reserve wines also contributes complexity and depth. Read More

2:00pm – Croatia, the Wine World’s Hidden Gem with Prović Winery. Sorry, Sold Out
Joining us from her family estate in Croatia is Monika Prović, who will introduce the stunning vineyard geography of the unique Neretva river Delta, not far from Dubrovnik. Like Chablis, the delta is rich in seashell fossils, as it lies only two kilometres from the Ocean. Monika will pour six of her family’s wines spanning both local specialities like Zlatarica, to her top Bordeaux blends, for which the area is famous. We will have the opportunity to taste the latest release of their top red blend, and compare it with a more mature example. Read More
