Members and Guests are invited to a luxe Champagne Gosset Masterclass presented by Bertrand Verduzier.

For over four centuries, great care has been taken to preserve a family know-how in the making of Grosset wines in Champagne. In 1584, Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ and wide-grower made still wines, mostly red, with the grapes he harvested from his own vibes. In those days, two wines vied for pride of place at the table of the Kings of France: the wine of Aÿ and, from several hundreds of leagues further south, the wines of Beaune. Both were made from the same grape varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Then, in the 18th century, the wines made in and around Aÿ began to bubble.

Bertrand is the founder of Parasol Wines, a portfolio of crafted and independent wineries from various appellations, including Loire; Roussillon; Provence; Piemont; Burgundy and of course Champagne, directed to export markets such as UK, USA, Belgium. Bertrand has been a judge at the International Wine Challenge since 2006.

    University House members and guests are invited to join Peter Lloyd who will present a variety of wines from his family's estate, Coriole Vineyards.

    Coriole was started by the Lloyd family in the 1960s. It is a beautiful spot looking south towards many McLaren Vale vineyards, the old Willunga Range and the Fleurieu Bight. The estate has a lot of Shiraz vines, the oldest planted in 1919. They have also had great interest in finding new and exciting varieties for the Australian table, starting with the Sangiovese vineyard planted in 1985, the Fiano vineyard (2001) and the Piquepoul vineyard planted in 2010, all three varieties pioneered in Australia by Coriole.

    The Lloyd family continues to manage and develop the Coriole estate with the third generation now at the helm. They are also celebrating their 50th birthday since releasing their first wine in 1969. A tasting not worth missing!
