Anything But Chardonnay – Blind! 

Sunday 10th November @ Putney

5 pm

£30 pp

Poor old Chardonnay gets a bit of a bad rep. Many over ripe, heavily oaked versions have really but people off.

However, it remains one of the world’s most planted varieties and, well, who doesn’t love a  Chablis? (yes—Chablis is made with Chardonnay!)

In this fun tasting we’ll be trying eight different white wines from across the world blind, your job, to spot the Chardonnay.

Whether a lover or not, we’ll try some delicious whites, perhaps find you some great Chardonnay alternatives

and hopefully convince the haters that Chardy isn’t so bad after all!
