It’s time to open some bottles. Join us for a celebration of what Burgundy has to offer. Come and discover a new favourite. Burgundy, with its perfume, elegance and finesse has a somewhat mythical image amongst drinkers. Fluctuating price and limited availability make it difficult to understand for most. Like a stranger at a ball, Burgundy is worth getting to know better. Join us for a tasting of Burgundies available now in Ireland. We will be on hand to answer any questions you may have, but otherwise this is a silent tasting. Just you and the wines. We will be showing wines from: William Fèvre Louis Michel et Fils Bouchard Père et Fils Gerard Seguin Michel Magnien Comte Armand Domaine Truchetet Domaine Ragot Domaine de la Folie Les Champs de Themis

A winery born from the study of music. Juan José Ledesma worked for years in the vineyards, researching grapevine genetics for the Chilean government. Whilst on his travels he discovered a Malbec vineyard that was over 100 years old. His request for backing to restore this vineyard was declined, so he tried a different angle, the research of the effect of music on wine. Each barrel is plugged with a different tune, playing inside, turning the lees, shaping the wine.Following his discovery of the ancient Malbec vines, Juan José expanded the business to work with other dry grown, ancient ancestral vines grown in Itata and Biobio. As their name suggests, Terroir Sonoro is all about ‘terroir and songs’.
