An evening with Mr Syrah in Sunderland



27 April 2020 at 19:00



Why we love it

Join us in Sunderland for a wonderful evening 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 evening will consist of a 5 course dinner with pairing Syrah wine and a glass of white wine as an aperitif. The venue will be confirmed closed to the date but it will be in Sunderland 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.
