Celebrate Pinot Noir on the Isle of Wight

Fans of the fruity Pinot Noir grape should book themselves into an event on the Isle of Wight next month that will be celebrating this versatile and tasty wine.

Organising by Ventnor Arts Club, the evening will see a selection of delicious wines being paired with suitable accompaniment all delivered by sommelier Matt Wishaw from the Island Wine Company.

It will take place on September 13th from 19:00 BST and will also see guests treated to a talk on the provenance of the grape and a screening of the film Sideways - a comedy following the journey of two men travelling the state of California and sampling an array of fine wines.

Guests can purchase tickets to the evening for £12 and places can be booked by visiting the club's official website.

Meanwhile, fans of the arts might like to also head along to an event which is being hosted by the club the following evening (September 14th) that will examine the works of 18th century composers, including Mozart’s 'Kegelstatt' trio.

A rendition of Mozart's piece will be performed by Peter Collyer, Jane Booth and John Irving, playing a stored eighteenth century viola, a modern reconstruction of the Lotz clarinet and a Walter pianoforte respectively.

Known collectively as Ensemble DeNote, the musicians will explore the piece as a "musical conversation", allowing them to improvise and embellish the original to highlight changes in classical musical taste. The showcase will be held from 12:30 and admission is set to cost just £5.

The Ventnor Arts Club hold weekly meetings in the centre of Ventnor, with visitors invited to head along and share their love for culture.

Jazz nights are a regular occurrence at the club, while screenings of classic cinema also make up a large section of the organisation's social calendar. In addition, the society regularly hosts talks with luminaries from across the arts spectrum. ADNFCR-3083-ID-801631946-ADNFCR
