The Wine Geese is a term used for Irish Immigrants during the 17th, 18th century who became involved in the wine industry of their chosen country - just a tiny history lesson.
Having seen the list of events, I am sure I will be busy during the year. The below list is only a short extract from the whole program - you can find the whole program here
13th Feb - Wine tasting in L'Atitude51 with Jane Boyce
10th Mar - Jean-Charles Cavez will bring his wines to Ballymaloe Grainstore
16th May - Fleur McCree will retrace her family steps from Cork to New Zealand in L'Atitude51
18th May - Winefair organised by Gary O'Donovan in Rochestown Park Hotel followed by a dinner in Flemings
28th May - Emma Cullen of Cullen Wines is inviting to a tasting in Cafe Paradiso
and the list goes on and on and on. A complete list of events can be found in L'Atitude or The Gathering website. I am also in talks with Emma & Beverly to organise a tasting with them for our panel of tasters - watch this space for the announcement.
This is a great opportunity to meet winemakers in a relaxed surrounding, tasting the wonderful wines made by Irish winemakers and learn more about the trade.
