PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL THREE WINE DINNERS ARE SOLD OUT. WE WILL BE ANNOUNCING MORE EVENTS SOON...STAY TUNED!
Pukka kicks off 2023 with a trio of our ever popular wine evenings aimed equally at beginners and experienced wine lovers. Peter will lead a small group of the wine-curious on a voyage of discovery, trying to make sense of where and how wine fits with complex, wide-ranging Indian flavours. 100% Snob-Free! Peter’s thirty years of teaching and working in the restaurant industry have sadly done nothing to diminish his irreverent sense of fun.
Spring Schedule 2023
SOLD OUT - Mediterranean Meander – April 24th 6:30pm
My favourite wine region transcends national boundaries…
Between three and four thousand years ago, wine culture spilled out of the
Caucasus into Mesopotamia where it was brought to the rest of the Mediterranean
world by Phoenican traders, Greek colonists and eventually, Roman conquerers.
Today, a wide range of grapes and regional styles make the Mediterranean the most
diverse wine region in the modern world. And diversity means so many options for
matching wines to the wide range of Indian flavours.
SOLD OUT - Spring Into Summer – May 15th 6:30 pm
Getting you ready for gorgeous summer days with wines built for warm weather.
This tasting will showcase fresh whites and rosés and light-to-medium reds from all
over the world to help prepare you for warm summer nights with friends and
family. And maybe one or two chunky reds for the BBQ! Whether summer for you
means weekend cottaging or just hanging out in the backyard, some of these wines
will be sure to delight.
SOLD OUT - Spain & Portugal – June 19th 6:30pm
The Indian Subcontinent Meets The Iberian Peninsula.
We end our spring series of wine dinners June 19th, matching the sublime flavours
of Pukka’s kitchen with the wide range of amazing Spanish and Portuguese wines.
Winemaking in both Spain and Portugal has vaulted quality-wise into the 21 st
century but both nations have proudly clung to the grapes and styles that have made
them famous. Their versatility will delight and surprise you.
Delicious wines, cerebral food, and the informal but informative synthesis of
sommelier Peter Boyd… An irresistible combination!
between 2/3 and 3/4 of a bottle of wine/person. If possible, please make safe
arrangements for your trip home so you can join in with abandon and enjoy the
Wine makes learning fun! Learning makes wine taste better!
