What is ‘natural’ wine, ‘biodynamic’ wine and ‘organic’ wine? How do they differ from each other? Why should you care? Join Caro Feely, organic and biodynamic winegrower and author for a talk followed by a wine pairing dinner with a menu created especially by Matthew Street, Executive Chef at Seasons Restaurant at The Eastbury Hotel, Sherborne. The evening will be a unique celebration to celebrate the close of the Festival’s 20th Season – see the menu.

“Caro Feely is a force of nature! Her new book ‘Glass Half Full’ tells the story of her family’s struggle to live, love and make healthy, natural wine on their small vineyard in France. Caro draws the reader into her world with all of its challenges, triumphs and heartaches. Required reading for wine lovers everywhere.”

During the evening, the Terry Quinney Trio (Terry Quinney – saxophone and clarinet, Dan Baker – guitar and violin, Joe Limburn – double bass) will entertain with French Café Music, including music by, or popularised by Django Reinhardt, Sidney Bechet, Stephane Grapelli, Edith Piaf and others.
