From £25 per person.
- The Art of Wine Tasting
Learn how to taste wine from the experts. Using three wines, our wine coaches will show you how to recognise a wine by sight, taste and smell so you will have a better understanding of different wine styles. It’s surprising how much you will learn in a short space of time!
From £25 per person.
- Old World vs New World
Which will be your favourite style of wine? You will have the opportunity to taste two white and two red wines from the same grape variety and similar vintage, but one will be from the new world and the other from the old. There are some many factors that can have a direct effect on a wine such as climate, style of wine making and soil, and our wine coaches will be there to make sure you enjoy the experience and also leave with a better understanding.
From £30 per person.
Excite your taste buds with rare and intriguing wines. This is a great wine experience to choose as you will have the opportunity to taste four wines from lesser known grape varieties from up and coming regions such as Gruner Veltliner from Austria and Tannat from Uruguay. Impress your friends with your new found knowledge!
From £35 per person
- Blind Tasting
This is a really fun tasting based on the Judgement of Paris, an infamous blind tasting that took place in 1976 where Californian wines beat France’s best. So bring the story alive and have your own judgement. Taste three French and three American wines and decide which country gets your vote.
From £40 per person.
