Seven from the cellar - Cabernet Sauvignon with John Shearlock - Thursday 13 August, 6pm, $85pp

At Regional Wines, Beers and Spirits - 15 Ellice Street, Wellington 6011

This tasting was scheduled earlier this year and cancelled and refunded due to Covid-19

Join us at Regional as we line up a host of Cabernet Sauvignons from around the world and put them to the test. 

This isn't any ordinary lineup of Cabernet Sauvignon but features block buster Bordeaux from the 2000 vintage, an old and extravagant Italian curiosity from the Langhe, a Super Tuscan from Antinori and everyone's favourite Lebanese... not to mention, New Zealand's ultra premium offering from Mills Reef.

Will these wines, separated by thousands of miles, stand out like a sore thumb when tasted blind or will the Cabernet in each make spotting them tricky? And, most importantly, are these wines any good?

Join John for some wine detective work as he puts six wines plus an unknown mystery wine under the microscope in a collaborative tasting experience.
