This category is often overlooked – it’s complicated! We will start with dry Sherry; then, moving into sweeter territory, we’ll have Tawny and Vintage-style Port, Malmsey Madeira and Sherry made from the Pedro Ximenez grape. Banyuls, Southern France’s answer to Port, and Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise from the Rhône will be on hand. Then there’s Vermouth – find out why Carpano is the mixologist’s choice – Pineau de Charentes, and – look out! – the inimitable Barolo Chinato. Producers will include Lustau, Gonzalez-Byass, Dow’s, Smith-Woodhouse, Blandy’s, Chapoutier, Domaine de Durban. Delicious accompaniments will include blue cheese, Marcona almonds, fruit and dried fruit, and, yes! Dark Chocolate.
