Gavi to Amarone - Wine & Dine    

The Galley, Woodbridge

Wednesday 22nd November 2017 


7.30 – 10.00 PM


 Gavi was Italy’s first white wine to gain international repute and is still considered one of the top-ranking Italian whites today. Made exclusively from the Cortese grape, a variety which has a heritage dating back to the 1600's, this is a wine that reflects its terroir. It is noted for its bone-dry character and crisp, flinty and fresh acidity, coming from the mineral-rich soils of the area. 


Valpolicella is the most famous wine district in north-eastern Italy's Veneto wine region. It's not hard to understand why, given the easy-drinking appeal of regular red Valpolicella, coupled with the prestige of its powerful and intensely flavoured counterpart Amarone della Valpolicella. Everyday Valpolicella wine is a bright, tangy, fruity red with its distinctive 'sour cherry' note - As a refreshing, medium-bodied wine it is quite different from the district's Ripasso, Amarone and Recioto wines.


Judging by the comments received from guests who have attended a - Wine & Dine session (Matching food & wine), at The Galley, Woodbridge, this is by far the most popular platform to taste & appreciate wine.


The Galley's one of our favourite venues, offering great food. Ugur Vata, cleverly incorporates both local ingredients, with those from his native Turkey. 

The Galley


 This format really adds another dimension to wine appreciation & enjoyment. Two wines are tasted with each course - starter / main-course / cheese / dessert, giving you the opportunity to compare & contrast.



Join me to taste eight wines from Peidmont & the Veneto - specially selected

 & chosen to accompany a four course dinner designed by Ugur Vata at The Galley - Dishes that show the individuality & flair which is associated with Ugur's imaginative cooking.
