Plaimont Producteurs is coming to London on 7 February, looking to show off its work with long-lost ancient grape varieties in Southwest France for the first time.

These grape varieties were discovered on a prephylloxera plot in Saint-Mont, and are currently being vinified and propagated by young technical coordinator Nadine Raymond, who will be on hand to explain the grape varieties and their potential.

Masterclasses will also run throughout the day as followed:

  • 3pm: Dr Jamie Goode, Nadine Raymond and Olivier-Bourdet Pees exploring these grapes, prephylloxera vines and a prephylloxera cuvée.
  • 5pm: Christine Cabri, head winemaker of Plaimont, exploring the varieties of South West France, and putting your blending skills to the test with Gros Manseng, Petit Courbu and Arrufiac.

The tasting will be followed with drinks and canapés from 6:30-8pm.
