Whether you’re looking for an engaging way to learn more about wine with family and friends, or to sharpen your knowledge about a specific grape, region or style, our advisors are on hand to lead that experience.

Our experienced fine wine advisor, Steffan Griffiths, will work with you and your group to select the wines according to your budget, arrange a tasting time and date, and then guide you through them, one by one.

Below you can find a selection of some of our most popular tasting themes, guaranteed to inform and entertain anyone from the established wine aficionado to the eager-to-learn novice.

How it works

  1. Book a tasting: get in touch with Steffan Griffiths at [email protected] or on 07776 956 742, to discuss options based on your budget (tastings start at about £80 per person, which includes the wines, delivery and Steffan's time)
  2. Receive your wines: we’ll have the wines delivered to you and your guests prior to the tasting
  3. Attend the tasting: Steffan will guide you through the wines, with opportunities to ask questions throughout - they usually last about an hour, but he can be flexible
  4. Follow up: we’re always on hand, should you have any further questions about the wines or wish to try some others

Tasting Examples

All wines will be sent as full bottles, unless the format is otherwise specified. During the tasting, we will cover ways to preserve opened bottles so you can enjoy the wines over the course of more than one evening.
