PUSHKIN HOUSE WINE CLUB: DOSTOEVSKY AND THE IDIOT – 150th ANNIVERSARY

Join our wine expert Tanya Nesterova for an evening dedicated to Fyodor Dostoevsky. Like many cultured Russians at the time, Dostoevsky travelled a lot, albeit sometimes under hard circumstances. During the tasting, we’ll follow in his footsteps and learn about the wines he used to drink or could have drunk. We’ll talk about the history of those wines, taste the styles of wines traditionally produced in the areas where he stayed and were popular with Russians in the past and in the present.
