Morris is a well-known expert in Burgundian wines, and he will be showcasing some of his favourite pours from the region in an intimate session co-hosted with an iconic winemaker of the Côte d’Or.
 
When it comes to Bordeaux wines, Anson has been described as the ‘world's most informed and accomplished expert on the wines of Bordeaux’. In fact, she has the honour of being the first woman to give the Wine and Food Society’s André Simon lectures since it started in 1971. For her masterclass, she will be joined by one of Bordeaux’s famed winemakers in showcasing the region’s most famous labels, back vintages and novel discoveries. Other events include a sauternes brunch and a wine tasting of the most underrated estates.

Last but not least is Robinson, co-author of World Atlas of Wine and the first Master of Wine from outside the wine trade. She host four wine events, including a presentation of the most influential bottles she has encountered throughout her career.

These are just some of the events members can look forward to. And, with Covid-19 restrictions permitting, future sessions will include walk-around tastings, casual drink parties and wine pairing dinners. Find out more here.
