What is biodynamic wine, and does it taste good?

If you’ve ever wondered about organic, biodynamic or natural wines – what makes them special, where they come from and, more importantly, what they taste like – then wonder no more as Pop Up Tasting as set to host their second Natural Wine and Cheese Night.

After a successful first event, the pop up team have decided to host a second night on the 11th August from 7pm in Glasgow’s Siempre Bicycle Cafe.

With tickets available from Eventbright, the night promises to educate guests on the new, organic and natural wine types though six tastings.

The wines will be paired with artisan cheeses from The Roving Fromagiere, and if anything takes your fancy, bottles can be purchased from Valhalla’s Goat.

According to the Pop Up Tasting’s Facebook page:

“There is a growing trend towards ‘natural’ winemaking in vineyards around the world. Wild yeasts, minimal filtration, low sulfites and a host of other techniques are producing an exciting and interesting range of wines. There has been a huge shift towards these wines with many bars and restaurants selling them.

“We will be discovering 6 very different types of natural wines, with an aim to de-mystify some of these new wine concepts.”

Tickets are on sale now and cost £27.14.
