Tokaji Tasting with Chateau Pajzos Megyer £35

15 October 2019

Join Laurent Commas from Chateau Pajzos Megyer as we enjoy exciting wines from this very special part of the timeless Tokaji region, the first European wine region to be classified in 1737.

We will be tasting unique native white grape varieties established centuries ago, first planted in 1576 by Count Dobo. Here the vines are nurtured by gentle slopes, volcanic soils and the Bodrog river, creating wines with superb minerality and character, distinctive aromas and are above all delicious.

Experience a selection of dry white wines, finishing off with a sweet Tokaji, famed by the Royal courts as one of the world’s greatest wines, declared  ‘The Wine of Kings, the King of Wines’ by King by Louis XIV

Kooyong Wines Producer Tasting £39

20 November 2019

The pastoral charms of the Mornington Peninsula form a backdrop for Kooyong’s vineyard, split into five parcels, several clones and a variety of soils. It is this commitment to single vineyards and individual terroir, that lies at the heart of everything the estate does. Newly-appointed Chief Winemaker Glen Hayley who has worked with Kooyong for six years respects and nurtures the inherent character of each of the gently undulating vineyard sites, with different parts of the vineyard made up from differing percentages of sand, loam and clay soils. It is these distinctions which influence the flavours of the single vineyard wines from each site.

Join us at Comptoir Cafe & Wine on 13th November for a Kooyong tasting with winemaker; Glen Hayley.
