Wine Experience London – Saatchi Gallery 25-26 October
I love Wine Tasting events. You can learn so much in just a few hours – and they are a very cost effective way to check what wines suit your own palate without buying a whole bottle! I am a great fan of good events, like The Wine Experience, held at the Saatchi Gallery on 25th and 26th October this year, where someone who knows a little more about wines than me has picked out the best quality wines to try. Michel Bettane and Tierry Desseauve certainly have the credentials to do just that – they spent 15 years running one of the most important French wine magazines before setting up their own business in 2005 and creating the ‘Guide Bettane and Desseave des vins de France’.
This particular show, held in the prestigious Saatchi Gallery, isn’t limited to French wines but aims to showcase great wines from around the world. As Michel Bettane himself says
‘Great wines deserve to be presented in an exceptional place: the Saatchi Gallery is a magical place, just like the Louvre where we have been organising our French wine event for the past 8 years’
In addition to a whole range of great wine exhibitors, there will be master classes and tastings led by Bettane and Desseauve themselves together with other well-known experts. You can find out more on the Bettane and Desseauve website.
