For 18 months Fearghal left everything he knew behind and cycled the globe – over 30,000km through some of the highest, driest, remotest, wettest, poorest and hottest places on earth. In doing so became one of the first Irishmen to circumnavigate the globe by bike.

Mile after mile what kept him going was a thirst for adventure, and a thirst for new wine. Using his years of wine tasting experience as a base, he experienced new countries and ever changing terroirs, but in each he found wine, and not just any wine … great wine.

Ferg will introduce us to this wine, and take us on a journey in and around the regions he passed through while we taste. All you need is you, we’ll provide the rest. And remember, each ticket helps Room to Read build more libraries and schools in the developing world
