Wine Tastings

(tickets numbers will be emailed to you, no physical tickets will be issued)

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. A great value night out if nothing else.
