As we as our ticketed events for all of you lovely folk to come along to, we specialise in private wine tasting events for your very own party!
Whether it's a work get-together, a special family occasion, a bunch of mates looking for a bit of a different night out, or even an educational group such as the WI, U3A or students on a hospitality course - we have the 'do' for you!
All you need is a minimum of 10 people willing to part with a tenner each (or £15 each with buffet), and we will arrange a wine tasting event to suit you.
We can hold the event at our shop (maximum 30 people), at the lovely little community centre 100 yards down the road (maximum 120), or at your own home or place of work.
We are also very keen to support the local community, and we are always willing to help local charities fundraise with the help of one of our events. If you are interested in holding a wine tasting evening to raise a bit of cash for your favourite charity, call in, telephone or email to find out how! We can raise from between £300 up to £2000 in a single evening - not to be sniffed at!
We are all very friendly and helpful, so just give one of the team a call for more information!
Whisky Tasting Night - Thursday 30th May
Alex Johnson is an expert in all things distilled, and is the rep from specialist importers Eaux de Vie. He will be presenting an eclectic range of stuff from around the world. The whiskies are pretty damn good too!
Spanish Night - Thursday 20th June
A fantastic opportunity to meet Ed Adams, Master of Wine and Consultant Winemaker. Ed collaborates with wineries from all over Spain to produce an incredible range of eclectic wines brought to us courtesy of Boutinot importers. A very nice man and well worth coming along to!
Australia/New Zealand - Thursday 25th July
Bruce Kendrick is paying us another visit to show some of his favourites from Down Under - and there are some very lovely wines in his portfolio from Australia and New Zealand!
French Night - Thursday 26th September
Newbie speaker Janet Guest will be presenting some new and exciting stuff from gorgeous importers Louis Latour. Latour's name is synonymous with superb quality and 'worth every penny' value for money. You'd be mad to miss it!
Italian Night - Thursday 24th October
It's one of our favourite speakers - Martin Slater from Thorman Hunt. A vision in tweed, Martin knows how to spin a yarn and genuinely has no idea how entertaining he is... A fantastic night out, with some of the best wines you'll try from Bella Italia!
Champagne Night - Thursday 21st November
Our annual homage to bubbles! We love our Champagne night, and always look forward to our wonderfully entertaining speaker - Brian Wheaton MW. What he doesn't know about wine and Champagne is not worth knowing, and it's a privilege to welcome him to the shop.
(Tickets cost £15.00 each and are non-refundable (Champagne tickets cost £27.50). Ticket price includes light buffet, and the event takes place at the shop and is seated. All events begin at 7.15pm and finish at approximately 9.30pm. There is a 10% discount on all wine purchases made on the evening.)
