Cuvelier Los Andes MC - 3rd May 2017

Cuvelier Los Andes Masterclass – 3rd May, 2017

Not to be missed! Join us next Wednesday at our Soho shop for a very special Cuvelier Los Andes masterclass, hosted by Baptiste Cuvelier himself.

The origins of the Cuvelier family’s wine exploits began in Bordeaux, in the early 20th century, with the purchase of Château le Crock in St. Estèphe in 1903.

In the 1990’s, the family spread their wings, as they turned their attention to Mendoza in Argentina, working first with Michel Rolland on his Clos de la Siete project. But, by 1999, they had begun to plant their own vineyards – Cuvelier los Andes – and produced their first wine under this estate in 2003. Truly outstanding!


 

Carramimbre MC 0426 Shoreditch (002)

Carramimbre Masterclass – 26th April, 2017

Join us on Wednesday, 26th April at Amathus Shoreditch for our Carramimbre masterclass.

Carramimbre, or ‘wicker path’ in ancient Spanish, is the name of one of the vineyards owned by Bodegas Pignon in the Ribera del Duero; situated at the bottom of a short hill, where an ancient castle still stands. Some of the vines here are as old as 50 years old.

The vineyards sit on the ‘Golden Mile’ of the Ribera del Duero (which is, in fact, 15km long) stretching along the Duero valley from the town of Peñafiel, down to Tudela de Duero. Here, the Bodegas rubs shoulders with many prestigious and iconic neighbours (Alion, Vega Sicilia etc).
