Wine Tastings & Events

Whether the opportunity to taste a huge range of wines from a single region and from a single vintage, the chance to try a selection of gems with a producer and the perfect food, or to compare and contrast the differences between styles in an educational setting, wine events with Lay & Wheeler are a great way to expand your wine knowledge in relaxed surroundings and great company. They also give us the chance to meet you, and find out exactly how we can best meet your wine needs.

We're pleased to host a wide range of events, from large tastings from a favourite region to intimate dinners held with winemakers, spending an evening of eating and drinking together.

We invite you to join us. Check this page regularly to see all our events listed, or join our mailing list for updates.
