Wine tasting Munich - Chianti Classico 16th September

1 post in this topic

Morning wine lovers! I regularly organise fun wine and food events in Munich which range from small wine-makers dinners with 4-course menu and a selection of wines, to large-scale events with a special programme aimed at consumers. On Monday the Consorzio Chianti Classico will host a tasting at the Künstlerhaus with 40 wineries and over 130 wines to taste. We have a programme of wine walks, two of which are in English and lead by Canadian Sommelier Justin Leone (former Somm at Tantris and judge on Masterchef Deutschland). Tickets for the event can be purchased online and cost 10 euros to include one wine walk and access to the open tasting. Here's the full info for the event: 


The Black Rooster is back! With over 300 years of history, Chianti Classico is the oldest protected wine-making region in the world and one of Italy’s most famous wines. 


On 16th September, 40 Chianti Classico wineries will present their most recent vintages of the Chianti Classico Annata, Riserva and prestigious Gran Selezione in the impressive setting of the Münchner Künstlerhaus. The 2016 vintage of the Gran Selezione celebrates the tricentennial vintage of the Chianti Classico appellation and sixteen of the participating wineries will be presenting their Gran Selezione 2016 wines. 

From 4.30pm wine lovers will have the chance to join in a programme of wine walks lead by some of Munich’s leading wine experts. These guided tasting walking tours will last approx. 30 minutes and will include a tasting of 5 wines around a specific theme (each participant has their own headset to follow the tour around the tasting room). Canadian-born, TV-celebrity sommelier Justin Leone will lead the two wine walks held in English. 


Programme of wine walks in English: 


6pm – Back to the roots 

Over 40% of the Chianti Classico vineyards are under organic viticulture and this figure is growing every year showing a clear indication of the respect the wine-producers of the region have for their land. Join Lustin Leone for a tour of 5 organic and biodynamic wineries. 


7pm – Foreign Touch 

The Chianti Classico region, aka “Chiantishire”, attracts tourists from every corner of the globe. Some even stay and turn it into their home, bringing with them different cultures, outlooks and approaches brought from far-off lands. Join Justin Leone to meet five wine producers who fell in love with the wines of the Black Rooster, and decided to make their own. 


For the complete programme of wine-walks in German, please see above.


Places at the wine walks are limited to a maximum of 15. Entrance to the free tasting is included in the price of the wine walks. 


Pre-event booking: 10 Euro per person


Day of event: 18 Euro per person
