Tutored Wine and Tapas Tasting in the South of France

Tutored Wine and Tapas Tasting in the Corbières

Learn about the wines, gastronomy, culture and history from the comfort of your holiday home.

Experience a Tutored Tapas Tasting with Emma Kershaw of La Maison du Rire, the wine and food school in the Corbières, and learn about the wines, gastronomy, culture and history of this fantastically diverse region in the comfort of your holiday home. For groups of eight or more Emma will come to a venue of your choice and host a Wine and Tapas Tasting.

The tasting lasts approximately three hours and incorporates a varied selection of eight wines from across the entire region. Each wine is partnered with local, seasonal and home made tapas dishes prepared by Emma to highlight the wine and the quality of the produce found here.

The tasting can be held in your holiday accommodation either over lunchtime, from 12h through to 15h, or in evening, starting at 19h and finishing around 22h. During the Tasting your guests will learn about the Languedoc-Roussillon, its wines and food. They will be taught not only how to taste wine like a professional but also how to analyse the relationship between wine and food. Looking at the affect that the key elements of sweet, sour, bitter and salt have on wine, and also wines affect on food.

This is a fun and sociable way to learn about wine and food, and a great introduction to the Languedoc-Roussillon. Prices start from 55€ per person depending on numbers and location. Most dietary requirements can be catered to with prior notice. At the end of the tasting guests will have the opportunity to purchase a copy of A Taste of Le Sud, Emma’s recently published book covering the recipes and wine matches used in the tasting. A great souvenir of both the holiday and the event.
