Tutored Tastings

Come along for an hour and a half(-ish) worth of relaxation, expert chat and speed tasting through 10 selected wines from our range. No previous experience in wine tasting required. You will merely be asked to taste some delicious wines and listen a bit to us talk about them, nothing onerous. We will offer a £10 or 10% (whichever is greater) discount on any mixed case orders of ANY of our wines on the night. A great value night out if nothing else.
