CineCafe Wed 26th Sept 7.30pm showing “Saint Amour”
Starring one of France’s national treasures, Gerard Depardieu, as a fleshy farmer who takes to the road with his son to a farm festival via the Wine Trail and chaos ensues. This is an outrageous road-trip comedy (think Sideways) with as strong a taste as the wine that the characters are habitually knocking back. Directed by Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern, Saint Amour is deadpan with bizarre episodes and some very improbable sexual encounters.
And we’ll be putting our usual spin on things and interpreting the movie through taste.
Tickets €15 (includes tasting). Spaces limited. Booking Essential.
Speed Tasting – The Most Fun Way to Learn About Wine! Fri Oct 19th 7.00pm
Due to popular demand, Speed Tasting is back. Open to anyone who likes wine, socializing, having fun and, above all, enjoys a challenge.
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. There’s a prize for the person who correctly identifies all 6 wines.
Price €30pp – includes Prosecco reception, introduction to wine tasting, taster of 6 wines & canapés.
