Handford at Home Virtual Tasting Series

After a short summer hiatus, the Handford at Home Zoom tastings are back!

After noting some of the suggestions made by our intrepid Zoomers, we’re having a two-part look at Italy – the first in August covering the north and central regions and then returning in October to explore the great south! In between those, in September we will have a look at two grapes that have been traditionally co-fermented – Syrah (Shiraz) and Viognier.

For all tastings, we have two options for you – either a sample pack with 6 individual 60ml bottles of each wine, or you can purchase a pack of the full bottles. Full bottle packs come with 4 tasting mats, but please ask if you need more.

If you can’t make the actual tasting, then we make recordings of our Zoom tastings available to ticketholders via YouTube for a limited time after the event. Many people have said they are keen to do our Zooms, but the time just doesn’t quite suit them, so this will allow you to do the tasting at your leisure.

NOTE: If you require the sample packs sent to a different address than the billing address, please put this in the “Order Notes” section at checkout.


Handford at Home Virtual Tasting Series #9 – Southern Italy

Wednesday 13th October 2021
6.30 to 7.15pm
£37.50 or £175.00

Wines from southern Italy have often been overlooked in favour of the better-known wine regions of the north, but the south boasts a warm Mediterranean climate, rich volcanic soils and abundance of ancient native grape varieties. Plus, recent years have seen the regions of southern Italy make dramatic inroads into producing wines of real quality.

Lots to talk about, and lots of grapes to discover!
