Why not book up as a group? You may feel more comfortable, or use this as a great way to socialise with new people in a relaxed environment. These evenings make great corporate events.

Refunds: are available from the venues up to 36 hours before each event. If we have to postpone or cancel an event due to any circumstances we will offer you a free glass of wine when you collect you refund.

Evenings are a mix of fun, discussion, opinion and maybe controversy: audience participation through debate, tasting and some analysing will be at the discretion of the participants.

We don’t want these events to be too ‘stuffy’. Aimed at those who want to learn through doing or just experience the pleasures of wine. There is no formal outcome. Sometimes we will offer ‘blind’ tastings to sharpen the senses and add some fun (attendees can practise tasting / analysing without bottle and label clues, if they wish).

Bespoke: We can tailor-make these evenings along themes and at budgets to suit with or without our presence. If deli foods are not required, prices are reduced accordingly.

Please get in touch if you are interested in any of our wine events.
