This pack contains a bottle of 3 different wines to be opened during an online tasting held on Thursday the 30th of April 2020. During the COVID-19 lockdown, we will be running a series of online, interactive tastings. This event is all about Chardonnay, one of the most widely-planted, divisive, as well as diverse grape varieties on earth. At this tasting will take a deep dive into this variety and look at 3 different styles of Chardonnay. First we’ll try the unoaked, lean and light expression from Chablis, then move south to the home of Chardonnay with a wine from Burgundy, and finally we’ll taste a locally-grown wine from the Margaret River in Western Australia, often sited as one of our best regions for growing Chardonnay.
This tasting will be done completely online, and questions are definitely encouraged, to be read out and answered. You can use your phone or laptop, you do not need a camera or microphone to take part.
From the whole team at United Cellars, we hope you are keeping safe and staying indoors.
HOW DOES IT WORK? You buy a pre-organised box of wines, which gives you the login code to our weekly tasting. Each week on Thursday at 6.30pm EST we will be opening 3 bottles of wine (enough to get a good taste and comparison, but not too many that it’s wasteful!) and discussing them. Each week you will learn about those wines, but also will compare them to the previous weeks.
WHO RUNS THEM? Our Head Wine Buyer Mark Faber will run these events for the first few evenings (he already ran the majority of our events, so there’s no real change there) however we are actively looking to expand the guests we have along to host. We will be roping in our mates from around the industry, both here and overseas to host events depending on what the topic is!
HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS? The best news is, these are FREE! You’ve got to buy the wines to taste along with our team, but we all need some wine at home during this period, don’t we? We’ll be offering 6 packs and dozen boxes, depending on the tasting.
