An afternoon with Mr Syrah in Wakefield



26 April 2020 at 15:00



Why we love it

Join us in Wakefield for a wonderful afternoon in company of Mr Syrah.

Syrah or Shiraz as it known in the new world, is one of the most planted grapes in the world and its wines are found everywhere and everyone loves it.

Despite being one grape, even if the New World Shiraz is considered to a different grape all together, there are dozens of styles, either blended or its own, and in our “afternoon with Mr Syrah” will taste some of them.

Travelling the length of Italy, from Sicily to Aosta Valley, we will taste 6 different wines 3 blends and 3 100% Syrah as to appreciate the terroir and its contributions to other grapes. The afternoon will consist of a guided tasting of 6 Syrah wines lasting approximately 2 hours with some buffet food provided. The venue will be confirmed closed to the date but it will be in Wakefield city centre

One grape, many styles, discover the one you love! and if you can't wait, visit our wine and grape section and learn about Syrah, the grape and discover the wines we stock.

Due to the current situation, the tasting has been postponed to a later date, if you have purchased your ticket you will receive an email informing you of the options available.

About the organizer of the event was founded in 2003 in response to a lack of quality Italian wine and food. Andrea as soon as he landed in the UK noticed that Italian products available in supermarkets were not the ones he was used to.

From wine to food, Andrea could not find the quality he was used to and coming from a wine making family, he decided to embark in a mission and source quality Italian wine and food.’s goal is to discover and import Italian gems from small, little known, yet dedicated, Italian wineries and food producers.

All products we import are of the highest quality and made using the best and most natural ingredients and respecting the environment, none of our product contains palm oil or preservative.

We do not import industrial or poor quality products, we believe in a healthy living and eating and drinking well is part of the Mediterranean diet.
