The Wine House Hotel 1821, Edinburgh’s elegant wine destination founded by culinary expert, Sep Marini, and wine producers, ZONIN1821, is set in a boutique Georgian townhouse. It promises an immersive experience for all wine enthusiasts, from novices to experts. The venue consists of an exclusive private dining and function facility, a chic cocktail bar and four opulent, individually designed guest rooms.

“It was very engaging and exciting to understand the elements surrounding the vine and, through tasting the same grape varieties coming from different regions, analyze how they influence the style of the producer and the organoleptic profile of the wine.”

Castello di Albola’s “Poggio alle Fate” stood out for me at this fun, educational event: a wine of great pureness and precision, combined with an oily texture and hints of apples & pears, giving way to white flowers and finishing with chalky minerality.
