Join us for a guided tasting of New World wines inspired by Russia’s most influential wine figures

In conjunction with the Red Star Over Russia exhibition, we present an evening of wine tasting and history talk led by wine expert Tanya Nesterova. Discover how the Russian Revolution in 1917 changed the wine world, and how the influential figures of this time redefend the styles and quality of wines in other regions of the world.

The tasting will feature 6–7 wines from the wineries directly influenced by the three pioneering winemakers that feature in the talk. Wines from California, Washington, New York State, France and Italy are amongst the selection.

Make the most of your experience and see the Red Star Over Russian exhibition before the wine tasting. Tickets cost £20 inclusive of the wine tasting. Please note that you will only be able to see the exhibition on this day between 10.00 and 22.00, before the tasting.

Why not extend your evening by dining with us at the L9 Restaurant after the wine tasting? Tickets cost £35 inclusive of the wine tasting and exhibition.

Tanya Nesterova has been a visiting lecturer at Westminster University, teaching translation, for nearly 20 years. She founded and run a wine club at the Russian Culture Centre, Pushkin House and is currently working on the project ‘Russia and the Wine World’.
