Summary Wines from Around the World with Amelia Singer

Join us for a fun, interactive day of diving into the Old and New Worlds of wine.

Leiths has created a menu which Amelia has matched wines to; a Leiths teacher will be cooking dishes in the background, which are then served and tasted alongside the wines.

Our March class will feature wines specially selected from female winemakers across the globe.


Canapé - Thyme cracker rare roast beef horseradish and caper dressing

Starter - Smoked haddock soufflé tomato, pepper and olive sauce

Main - Roasted lamb rump with salsify pumpkin and sweet potato puree, parsnip crisp and buttered kale

Dessert - Apple cake blackberry and apple compote cinnamon ice cream

The Old World wine-growing regions of France, Italy, Spain, Germany will be pitted against the New World areas of California, Australia, South Africa and Chile.

Old World wines, generally lighter-bodied with herbal, mineral and floral components, will be closely compared to the wines of the New World, which are generally full-bodied, fruity and higher in alcohol thanks to warmer climates.

Continuity, history and tradition vs. technology and science - but which world should prevail? Join us on November 23rd and decide for yourself.

Amelia completed the prestigious WSET Wine Diploma and worked in wineries all around the world before launching her career as a TV presenter and video blogger for Jamie Oliver.

She’s on a mission to demystify wine, eliminate snobbery and empower everybody to make great wine choices.
