In conversation with Dartington’s Associate Director of Wine Justin Howard-Sneyd, Jancis will talk us through six of her favourite wine regions that deserve to be considered ‘classic’. Some of the best value wines in the world come from under-appreciated or emerging wine regions, and you will discover some fabulous wines that may become your new favourites. Jancis has handpicked these very special wines especially for this event – expect to be surprised and delighted!
