Exclusive St Emilion Tasting
Sorry Full... A very special evening jointly hosted by Timothy Hartley, and Rob Price. Timothy is one of only two British Chancelleries of the Jurade de Saint-Emilion, and we are delighted to be able to offer an evening tasting exclusive Saint-Emilion wines. A unique event to learn about the region its people, and its wines. Please book early to avoid disapointment, as at only £25 this evening will sell out....
The Jurade de Saint-Emilion dates from at least 8th July 1199 when the Charter of Falaise was sealed by King John, John Lackland, recording the confirmation of rights given by his brother King Richard, Coeur de Lion. After its foundation by these two sons of Henry II and Eleanor, Duchess of Acquitaine, the Jurade governed the City until the French Revolution, with its powers being confirmed and extended to the other parishes of the Jurisdiction by Edward I in 1289. When the area came under French sovereignty in the late fifteenth century the Jurade’s rights, duties and powers were confirmed anew by the Kings of France.
The Association de la Jurade in Britain seeks to preserve and spread the well deserved fame of Saint-Emilion, as well as to encourage and build upon the historic links and friendships between the two countries.
