There’s what looks like a brilliant tasting coming up on April 4th,
Dermot Nolan Wine Services is pleased to announce that, in conjunction with the Institute of Masters of Wine, a tasting of wines from Chianti and “Super Tuscan” IGTs from the 2001 vintage will be held in the Stillorgan Park Hotel on Monday 4th April 2011. This superb opportunity to taste these wines after 10 years is a reprise of a tasting held in Dublin in 2006.
2001 was a splendid Vintage in Tuscany, producing wines of great quality. The crop was smaller than average and in spite of worries over rainfall in late September the wines have deep colour, excellent concentration and good potential for longevity.
How it will work
This tasting is a standard “walk-around” – the wines are simply lined up on tables and tasters can taste in any order they choose. Tasting glasses and tasting sheets are provided.
When & Where?
Monday 4th April 2011, from 14:00 until 18:00.
- Master of wine: €15
- Master of wine students: €20
- Everyone else: €30
Tickets must be booked and paid in advance and can be obtained ONLY from
