Way back in February, I attended a Little Beauty wine tasting held at L'Atitude 51 on Union Quay. (Those of my generation will better remember this venue as the famous Lobby Bar.) This tasting was part of the Meet the Winemaker series, hosted by L'Atitude 51 in conjunction with various Irish wine importers and merchants. It turned out to be a great opportunity to taste some good wines, eat some good food and most importantly, hear the thoughts of the winemaker themselves.
I recently received news from L'Atitude 51 of two new upcoming tastings for the month of May, which I'm delighted to share with you.
Beaujolais Tasting - Thursday May 10th (19.00-20.30)
Vines have been cultivated on the Chateau de Chatelard domain since it was created in the time of Charlemagne in the eighth century. This chateau is fanatical about quality, both in the farming and in the winemaking.
Located in Western Australia’s Great Southern approximately 360 kilometres south-east of Perth, Frankland River is one of Australia’s fastest growing wine regions. Although viticulture began in the Frankland River region in 1969, it has only more recently become known as a significant producer of premium quality Western Australian wines. This is one of the coolest wine producing regions in Western Australia.
