Winemaker Dinner: Hope Family Wines at The Pickled Piglet

The Pickled Piglet Gas St

7.00pm on Tuesday 18 November 2014

Including 6 wines three tapas dishes a main course and a dessert.

Meliza Jalbert from Hope Family (Paso Robles in California) will be hosting the event. The Hope family has been farming in Paso Robles for more than 30 years. When they arrived in this barely discovered region they planted apples and grapes. Little did they know that the rolling oak-studded terrain of Paso Robles would one day become viticultural terroir of significance and one of the top winegrowing regions for quality red wine within the Central Coast.

Gone are the apple orchards. Today the Hopes cultivate mature vineyards of the varieties best suited to their area including Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah Merlot Mourvedre and Grenache. Vine density has increased and each vine is asked to produce very little fruit. The terroir of this domain expresses itself in its unique regional character. Regardless of the varieties planted the expression of Paso Robles is displayed in the glass with spice liquorice and berry in the nose soft textures and silky tannins on the palate.

Hope Family Wines consists of five individual brands: Liberty School Treana Candor Austin Hope Troublemaker. We will be tasting the Liberty School Treana and the Troublemaker wines during the course of the evening matched with delicious piglet dishes. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet the winemaker and taste these fabulous wines which all retail between £12 and £25 a bottle.

Places are limited and must be booked in advance.
