Alpine Wines

  • Wine Sentience 104 Vivian Street Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

The Alps, with seemingly endless crags and harsh seasons, define the populations they run along side. Over centuries, humans have learned to harness the elevation, the vivid sunshine of Summer and the biting cold of Winter. This adaptability has made many of the Alpine regions in Europe fiercely independent and, fortunately for us, has seen to the preservation of otherwise long forgotten grape varietals.

On June 10th, we will be tasting a line up of wines varying in age, sub region and language. The line-up:

- 2011 François Rousset-Martin Savagnin Clos de Trus
- 2012 Domaine des Cavarodes Trousseau de Messagelin
- 2014 Cellier des Cray Chignin Bergeron Binette
- 2016 Jean-Yves Péron Côtillon des dames
- 2016 Grosjean Petite Arvine
- 2010 Di Barro Fumin
- 2009 Kuen Hof Südtirol Eisacktaler Veltliner
- 2012 Untermoserhof Sankt Magdalener

Because these wines are neither made or distributed in large quantity, this will be a single bottle tasting so seats are limited.
