Wine Tasting

Thursday 11 November 2021 18:00-19:30

Wine Tastings at the French Institute are back!

To celebrate COP 26 taking place in Scotland, our wine tasting will take us through a Tour de France of organic, environmentally conscious wine producers.

We will be tasting 6 delicious wines from key French wine-producing regions.

The event will be hosted by Richard Bouglet, co-founder of l’Art du Vin, a Scottish independent Wine Merchant that specialises in artisan organic wines. Richard will explain the fundamentals behind organic and biodynamic winemaking, as well as detail why being organic has become a necessary step for many producers. This will be followed by a tutored tasting of 6 wines.

Santé !
