2.00: Guerrieri Rizzardi
A regular recipient of Tre Bicchieri (Italy's highest Wine honours) Count Giuseppe Rizzardi is a winemaker on fire at the moment. His Bardolinos are widely considered the best in the region and his whites have supreme elegance and balance.
Positioned high in the Simonsberg Mountains in Stellenbosch the Delheim estate makes wines that are unrivalled in South Africa for elegance and purity of fruit. Floral, aromatic whites and multi-layered, beautifully defined reds. Reg Holder is Chief Winemaker at this class-leading family estate.
3.00: Château de Caraguilhes
Château de Caraguilhes is rated amongst the top Corbières estates. This award winning winery is completely organic and was using organic techniques when it was virtually unheard of anywhere else. Winemaker Etienne Besancenot is extremely quality-focused and he produces consistently great wines from the local grape varieties.
3.30: Insight Vineyards
This trail blazing estate is bringing Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc back to its original style. Thanks to the vision of owner Fleur McCree and the winemaking skills of former Cloudy Bay guru Eveline Frasier, the wines, already astonishingly aromatic and intense are set to become stellar.
All masterclasses will be co-hosted by Lynne Coyle, head of wine buying for O'Briens.
