Due to great demand we are pleased to announce that Okhuysen is organizing a winetasting in English. For the occasion we have chosen a fun theme with a lineup of eight amazing wines.
When looking at a map of France, you can see that in the east there is a virtually unbroken chain of wine regions spanning from north to south. From north to south these regions encompass: Champagne, Chablis, Burgundy, Savoie, Northern Rhone, Southern Rhone and ultimately Languedoc.
These regions all have their own climate, soil, and winemaking tradition. Consequently their wines have their own authentic taste and style.
During this evening we will taste wines from all aforementioned regions, so that you learn to recognize their different styles, and hopefully at the end of the evening the concept of ‘terroir’ will have become less mysterious.
The tasting will be hosted by Max Funcke in the cellar of our store at Gierstraat 34, Haarlem on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 August from 19:30 – 21:00
Tickets are €39,50
