Steven Spurrier revolutionised the perception of fine wine in 1976 when he arranged a blind tasting in Paris of the top Bordeaux and Burgundy against comparable wines from the USA. The result was that the French judges scored wines from Stags Leap & Chateau Montelena, both Napa estates, as being the very best in the tasting – superior to all the First Growths and the finest from Batard-Montrachet.
Not satisfied with embarrassing the French at their own game with still wine he now owns Dorset winery Bride Valley, along with his wife Arabella, and is producing some rock ‘n’ roll fizz which shames the famous names of Champagne.
On Saturday 8th December Steven will be introducing the first ever Crémant to be produced in England to our growing range of British bubbles at Museum Wines. The tasting will be complemented by a talk on Steven’s life in the world of wine and the opportunity to buy a signed copy of his new book,
“Wine, A Way of Life”
Tickets for the tasting, which will start at 3pm on Saturday 8th December, are modestly priced at £10 and availability is limited to 20 spaces. Book yours online here
