Wine Tasting Events

We host wine tastings in-store where we offer the chance for mail list members to try some wines that we have been enjoying.

We also hold charged events for a more comprehensive wine tasting experience. Winemakers or their representative lead guided sessions giving members of the public the opportunity of hearing the story behind the label. Places for these types of events are limited so in order to make sure you are invited please add your name to our mailing list. We will e-mail you to let you know of any upcoming events. Please ensure that you RSVP as places are on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Events are usually held on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday and are likely to last up to one hour. Although you may not be over the legal drink-drive limit, we would strongly recommend that you don't drive afterwards.

Friday 5th October – #FreeTastingFriday: White Rioja

You may be familiar with red Riojas, we want to introduce you to white ones. Broadly speaking, there are two styles. We will be showing you light, fresh and tangy whites plus the full-bodied, rich and nutty style with something in between.

Join us anytime between 6pm and 8pm to taste

Friday 12th October – #FreeTastingFriday: The Classics

Rioja is a region steeped in history and this tasting will aim to celebrate that rich heritage focusing on some Bodegas who keep time honoured, traditional techniques at their core. Expect classic, delicious examples at each ageing level.

Join us anytime between 6pm and 8pm to taste

Friday 26th October – #FreeTastingFriday: Modern Rioja

Over the years, we have seen many producers change the status quo and experiment with their winemaking. This tasting aims to show you which ones stand out from the crowd and deliver something slightly different but unmistakably Rioja.

Join us anytime between 6pm and 8pm to taste

We will also have lots of different Rioja’s to try all day everyday throughout October on our tasting barrel – just ask a staff member.
