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.
