Two videos for your delight and delectation… the first is covering a tasting I sadly couldn’t get to. It shows Dr José Vouillamoz who took member of the Circle of Wine Writers through a tasting of 11 extremely rare grape varieties. Tasting many of these will have been a first and probably a last chance for people to taste these. Dr José Vouillamoz is one of the authors of the seminal wine grape book – WINE GRAPES by Jancis Robinson, Julia Harding and José Vouillamoz. The video was taken by Jamie Goode.

The second video has the ever entertaining Charles Metcalfe doing a little stint on food and wine matching with Discover the Origin.
