This case of six wines includes a ticket to a virtual wine tasting event “Trailblazer: A Toast to International Women’s Day”. This will take place live over Zoom on International Women’s Day, March 8th at 7pm and will feature some of the most exciting and important female voices in wine, covering the full spectrum of the industry from production to sales and wine writing.

 

We’re thrilled that  Jancis Robinson, the world’s most respected wine writer and authority on wine, will be taking part in the discussion along with three talented winemakers:

  • Myriam Ambuzer from Lyrarakis vineyard, Crete:  Myriam creates stunning  Greek wines with a philosophy that emphasises precision, purity and supple texture of the fruit.

    • Red  |  Ciacci IGT Toscana Rosso | Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah  |  Tuscany  |  Italy
