About the event

Clay pots date back to the Neolithic period and were used by nearly all ancient civilisations. Used for fermentation, storage and transport, clay vessels have travelled the wine world for thousands of years and continue to influence production today.

While oak, concrete, and stainless steel have gained favour in modern winemaking, the use of amphora of all shapes and sizes is growing, particularly by artisanal and minimal intervention wine producers.

Join Victoria Daskal DipWSET for an exploration of wines from around the world that have been produced in clay vessels. Chart the progression of clay vessels from Georgian Qvevri, to Amphora in Italy, Talha in Portugal, Tinaja in Spain and interpretations around the world.
