12:30pm - 1:15pm: Champagne PIPER-HEIDSIECK 'Meet the Maison'.

2:00PM: THE LIQUID TUSCAN TOUR £12.50 (£12.50) Transaction fee applicable * Sold out

2:00pm - 2:45pm: From Chianti to the Maremma - The Liquid Tuscan Tour. Arguments rage over whether the historic wines of Chianti Classico, or the new wave super-Tuscans of the coastal areas like Maremma and Bolgheri, are the greatest wines of Tuscany. This intriguing masterclass is road trip around Tuscany's multitude of terroirs tutored by the Alessandro Gallo, Chief Wine Maker of Castello d'Albola in Chianti, and sister winery, Rocca di Montemassi in the Maremma area.

3:30PM: THE PORTS OF QUINTA DO NOVAL £15.00 (£15.00) Transaction fee applicable * Sold out

3:30pm - 4:15pm: The Extraordinary Ports of Quinta do Noval. Of all the Douro's great Port names, Quinta do Noval is the most iconic, due to the overall quality of their wines without doubt, but especially because of one wine: the legendary Naçional Vintage Port from a tiny vineyard of ancient ungrafted vines that produces 200 cases per year, selling at £500 per bottle. This exceptional tasting through the Noval range will span tawnies, colheitas and, of course, the famed Vintage Ports.
