Vajra Barolo wine tasting dinner at Annexe in Birmingham

After the success of our previous wine tasting dinner at Annexe in Birmingham we are delighted to team up with them again, this time for one of the historic Barolo estates with which we work very closely. They also happen to be good friends with the owners of Annexe. Match made in heaven…

We will be focusing on their whole range of critically acclaimed wines to give you a flavour of the style of the region, including some of their most revered reds, fantastic whites and top notch sparklings. We will be joined by Giuseppe Vajra who will guide you through his spectacular wines including some rare back vintages.

The seating will be banquet style adding to the elegant social ambiance.

Annexe has been one of the top rated restaurants on Trip Advisor consistently since opening, and as one of Birmingham’s hidden gems I thought it was a great fit for Loki. Their chef is Italian, and creates dishes inspired by her British upbringing and her Italian ancestry, and expertly fuses these styles to create top class food.

Vajra have been described by Matthew Jukes as “one of the Series A of Barolo” this family estate is hailed as one of the superstars of Italian wines, and produce wines in a traditional way, and have developed a stellar reputation for producing wines with a great weight and power as well as subtlety.

Where: Annexe Restaurant, 220 Corporation St, Birmingham, B4 6QB

D’Oliveiras Madeira Wine Tasting

I thought it was about time we hosted a Madeira tasting at Loki. D’Oliveiras are thought of as one of the top producers in the historic island, and what’s more they are still family owned. Madeira is one of the most underrated wines in the world, and perfect for Christmas. These fortified wines offer a completely different experience from the dry crisp refreshing styles all the way through to the mega sweet. They are also the perfect wine for drinking over a number of weeks even years, these wines will last forever and keep their amazing complexity. This tasting will aim to show the wonderful range and complexity in the wines. In this tasting we will be trying Madeira from entry level through to wines from 1958 and 1907 vintages.
