Update on 11th edition and Wine dinner on October 8th
We really have our heads down doing the final edits for the 11th edition of Wine behind the label. The digital pdf version should be ready either at the end of this month or early next month and the printed version will follow shortly afterwards. Watch this space for more.
New numbers :
- Over 200 new entries and 1,500 wines for the new edition
- Nearly 4,000 wine estates and producers studied in depth
- In total over 6,200 wine producers and over 26,000 wines
- Maps, vintage charts and glossary
The maps have been comprehensively updated to show new wine designated areas such as AVAs in California amongst others.
In the meantime – on October 8th
Our next dinner at The Yacht will feature the wines from Duckhorn Vineyards in California. This is a magnificent 5 course Game dinner which will be accompanied by some sumptuous wines from one of California’s leading wine producers.
Co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has spent almost forty years establishing itself as one of North America’s premier producers of Napa Valley wines. From its modest inaugural vintage of 800 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and 800 cases of Merlot in 1978 to its addition of Sauvignon Blanc in 1982, Duckhorn Vineyards has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today. In addition to the above wines some intriguing wines from more recently acquired vineyards in Sonoma are also produced
Brian Boswick from the winery will be at the dinner to tutor taste you through the wines which seem to us to be the perfect accompaniment to food for Game lovers.
