Examples of Previous cooking masterclasses and events

Interested in learning about how wine is made then sign up for a free class this coming Saturday 18th March 2017 at the market?

It's all about making things interesting at the market so L'ami Jac, our wine importers at the market, are going to be running a series of classes at the market starting this Saturday with a class on how wine is made.  They will take you through a journey from it's origins to the process you use to make wine and you will learn about colour, smell and flavour.  It is a completely free class that will last about 45 minutes and of course you get to try some wine - so sign up!

This is what L'ami Jac have to say about themselves:

Who is l’ami JAC: 
JAC is a young start-up which has succeeded in combining the brains of a Frenchman and a Scotsman together in the same skull.

What do we sell:
Our wines are the embodiment of Scottish pragmatism and French elegance. The majority of our wines are from independent French winemakers who produce in small quantities.

Practice:
We pick our wines from long established French vineyards. Our way of doing business is unique in many ways: we maintain close relationships with all of our producers. Thanks to that, we remain well informed about their practices and we are always a step ahead when it comes to discovering new gems from independent but promising French winemakers.

Vision: 
We aim to bring down the iron curtain between wine specialists and wine drinkers. We position ourselves as ambassadors of independent winemakers willing to share their art abroad. It is our strongest belief that wine is not a matter of how much you know or how much you spend but rather a matter of how much you are willing to share. Anyone can afford and enjoy wine if they are provided with good advice.

L’ami JAC will always be there to deliver sound advice.

The next few  Wine Events that we have lined-up are:-

How to recognise the main grape varieties

How to choose a good wine ? Can we trust the medals on the bottle ?

Spaces are limited so if you want to find out more book yourself a place then email us at info@brookgreenmarket.co.uk or call the following number - 07751 060 921
