These tastings have a focus on consumption and conversation. Dry, snooty wine tastings are a thing of the past. You'll learn a little, drink well and chat a lot. Some of the tastings will get a bit nerdy (in a fun way) and some will be an excuse for us to open up some great bottles and drink with good people. See individual events for more information.
Private & bespoke tastings
If you're looking to book a private tasting for a group, do get in touch. We'd love to help make your vinous dreams come true. Whether you're looking for a private masterclass from a Master of Wine, or you're a Hen Do trying to start the night off right, we'd love to take you on a delicious journey.
Ideally we require a group of eight - twelve to make a private booking work, but do get in touch and we'll see what we can do. Naturally your chosen theme will guide the price, but the below themes give you an idea.
Here are a few suggested themes, but let us know if you have something in mind:
Fancy a super informal wine tasting?
Pop in anytime the shop is open to taste from our Enomatic machine. There will always be a selection (changed weekly) of eight wines open to taste. Simply purchase a tasting card in store and enjoy a 'help yourself' style tasting.
The team are on hand to explain the machine and take you through the wines if you wish, but otherwise grab a glass and away you go. This is essentially a walk-around tasting, but there are a few stools and tables if you'd like to take a seat and enjoy the wines with some olives in our beautiful space.
No need to book, just turn up! If you'd like to talk about hosting an informal tasting like this for a larger group out of hours, then get in touch.
We will always have a few great value wines and some special juice on the machine. A £10 credit is a good start allowing a taste of most wines, but we can always top you up if you're after a few glasses of the good stuff.
