Charlemagne Wine Club - 2011 Tastings

Monday 21st February 2011
Wierd and Wonderful presented by Paula Sinberg

Paula Sindberg has a passion for unusual grape varieties and is on a mission to get people excited about the diversity of the wine world. She’s the owner of The Ultimate Wine Company Ltd, an internet wine merchant based in Marlow.

“I've always been fascinated by wines, particularly those made from unusual varietals. That lead to my specialty in the wines of Austria, Portugal, Italy and Switzerland among others. Come along and learn about such grapes as Petit Rouge, Saperavi, Pecorino (NOT the cheese!), Frappato, the nearly unpronounceable Hondarribi Zuri, and many more. This will be a ton of fun"
