Tastings

 

The tasting table

After many interminable hours of wine education, we’ve learnt the grapes by rote, studied vineyard maps and winemaking techniques, stood in stuffy rooms to hear the tales  of ‘elevage’, ‘battonage’, and ‘remontage’. Sniff, swirl, sip, spit, repeat……we have measured out our lives in tasting pours.  And it all seems a bit removed from the enjoyment of actually drinking wine.  

 

Which is why we’ve come up with a series of themed evenings where you can enjoy some decent quality wine, listen to us talk about it a bit (if you want to) and ask any questions you might have. Our priority is to make wine inclusive, more interactive and ultimately more fun.
