New WineTasting Season at the Institut Français

From 01/10/2012 at 18:30 to 17/06/2013 at 18:30

As wine is vital to French culture, the Institut français has been running exclusive Wine Tasting sessions for 15 years, a prestigious rendezvous in the intimate and convivial setting of their Art Deco building. Starting in October, their new season will make discover the wines of France, one sip at a time, throughout an informative and interactive programme of 16 sessions focusing just as much on the vintage as on French wine-producing regions.

Their expert lecturer, Sandy Leckie, member of The Association of Wine Educators and Circle of Wine Writers, will lead the participants through six-specially-selected wines during a two-hour session taking place in the Institut français listed library or elegant lounges.

The Institute new partners are The Chelsea Wine Company and Androuet. Working with a network of French professionals, The Chelsea Wine Company is proud to be offering a number of wines not normally found in the UK. Certain sessions will be accompanied by a selection of delicious cheeses, courtesy of Androuet, master Cheesemongers and maturing experts whose London boutique and restaurant is based in Spitafields.
