Samuel Baron- Touraine
Taste the white and red wines from organic producer Samuel Baron, who owns a 20-hectare family domaine in the village of Thésée. Since returning to the family business in 2010, Samuel initiated the transition of his estate to organic farming and rapidly established a reputation for quality. His wines are wonderfully concentrated and balanced, and a good match for wines two or three times the price!
Monday 6 pm – 7.30pm
Eric De Suremain – Château de Monthelie
Tasting the splendid organic and biodynamic wines of Château de Monthélie. Eric is very much a “hands on” man of the soil. He is all about his vines and terroir and it shows in his wines which are amongst the best you will taste in the Cote de Beaune. Monthelie straddles the borders of Volnay and Meursault on hillside vineyards that get excellent exposure to the all-important ripening sun.
Tuesday 6 pm – 7.30pm
