CINECAFE PRESENTS: Pipeño
VENUE: St Peter’s, North Main St – Guest Speaker Francisca la Jara (Chilean Wine Writer)
Wed 21st August 7.00pm Movie Starts
Having had to suspend CineCafé since the fire, we are thrilled to be able to screen our popular food and wine movies again thanks to the team in St Peter’s stepping in and offering their wonderful venue.
This month we will be showing: Pipeno. a wine documentary telling the story of some of the oldest vineyards in Chile where the winemaking techniques have been preserved from generations back.
Pipeño is the traditional method of winemaking in Chile, which dates back to the late 16th century. Pipeño is a rustic wine usually made with Paìs, a sacramental grape which was the first grape planted in the Americas, brought there by the Spanish. Fermentation takes place in traditional, open-top lagars (vats), and are made in the light, easy drinking style typical of what the farmers produce for their everyday consumption.
There is a major Pipeño revival in South-Central Chile by winemakers who wish to combat commercial winemaking practices that threaten the survival of traditional methods.
The documentary follows the efforts of one winegrower in a simply filmed, but fascinating overview of this unique style of wine.
We are delighted to have Francisca Jara, Chilean Wine Writer, talented cook and long-term friend of L’Atitude to present these wines, being very familiar with them from her time growing up in Chile. Francisca will provide some typical Chilean tastes to accompany the Pipeños.
Tickets: €20. Spaces limited so booking essential.

SPEED TASTING @ St Peter’s The Most Fun Way to Learn About Wine
Here’s how it works: we teach you the basics of how to taste wine and then it’s over to you – you taste 6 wines over the course of the evening – but you’ll be on the move: a different table, a different wine, different co-tasters. And here’s the fun part…..you taste all the wines blind (i.e. we won’t tell you what each wine is) – it’s up to you to work with your co-tasters to try to guess based on the information provided at the start. Identify all 6 wines and you could win a prize.
Price €30pp – includes Prosecco reception, introduction to wine tasting, taster of 6 wines.
