At last we get to France, arguably the most important country for wine in the world. We will obviously just be covering a tiny portion of the country, so expect a few more French tastings in the future. We absolutely love French wines at Loki, and just the sheer depth and variety of styles makes it such a fascinating place for wine.
We won’t be focusing on the famous regions, as we really want you to explore some of the styles of wine that make France truly interesting, and although there are really well established areas in France, there are still plenty of hidden gems to unearth.
You will get three 750ml bottles, one white wine and two red wines for this tasting.
This recurring event will be hosted by both Phil the owner and Paul the wine educator, plus Will the owner of Anderson & Hill, giving you a unique chance to experience a tasting with both wine experts at Loki, a cheese expert.
To make it simple for you, for this tasting you just need to buy the wines from us, then purchase the cheese to match the wines. 30th May tasting will feature: Lightwood Chaser, Mimolette Affine & Blu des Causses. If you live outside the cheese delivery area and can’t source these cheeses our suggested replacements that are widely available are: Goats Cheese, Parmesan & Roquefort.
If you live within 5 miles of Loki you can select the option to get 300 grams of cheese (approximately 3×100 grams of each cheese) of delicious Anderson & Hill cheese delivered with your wines. Or we deliver on Wednesday’s to Solihull & surroundings, Thursday to Stourbridge & surroundings, and Friday to Sutton Coldfield.
If you live outside the 5 miles we can ship you the wine via UPS express delivery (usually 1-3 days), however as we cannot guarantee that the wines sent via UPS will be delivered in time for the live tasting, we will be providing everyone with the video of the tasting afterwards. Unfortunately we cannot ship the cheese out via UPS.
The format of the event
The live video will happen from 5pm on Saturday and will last for at least one hour. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you have during the event, please use the live chat and talk to Victoria who will relay the messages to the speakers.
If you cannot make the live video we will send everyone a recording of the event usually around 2 hours afterwards so you can enjoy the tasting at a time convenient for you.
