Events for 2017

Furleigh Wine & Chocolate Tasting with Amuse Chocolate

Thursday 13th April, 7pm until 9pm

In the spirit of Easter and all things chocolatey we are holding a wine and chocolate tasting on Thursday 13th April, and will show you how chocolate really can taste good with wine! Chocolatier Amanda Smith from Amuse Chocolate in Symondsbury will demonstrate the art of chocolate pairing with Furleigh wines. Be prepared to try some memorable chocolate taste experiences such as rose & geranium, baked apple & pine nut and strawberry & black pepper. Amanda’s chocolates are made in Symondsbury and use as many locally produced ingredients as possible. The evening will feature 5 Furleigh wines to try (2 sparkling and 3 still), paired with chococlate that complements the wine and challenges our taste experience . Amanda will guide you through flavour combinations, taste sensations and talk about why we love chocolate so much!

Tickets are £15 per person.  To book your tickets click here.

Furleigh Estate World Cruise
Friday 26th May, 7pm until 9pm

Join us on our imaginary cruise liner as we tour the world comparing and contrasting Furleigh Estate wines with wines of the world.  Expect taste comparisons like:

·         Bacchus Fumé and Australian Sauvignon Semillon

·         Sea Pink and Spanish Granacha rosé

·         Tyrannosaurus Red and Burgundian  Pinot Noir

·         White Pinot Noir and a New Zealand White Pinot

·         Classic Cuvée and Californian fizz

Mark Banham, wine educator and owner of Dorchester wine merchant Morrish and Banham, will bring the world to Furleigh.   The same or similar grape varieties grown across the globe produce wines of many different and exciting styles.  This evening will show us how those produced at Furleigh Estate compare.

The wines will be accompanied by platters of cheese and charcuterie from Dorset and the rest of the world.

Please note wines may change from those listed above according to availability.
