TASTINGS

Learning about wine has too often been a very stuffy pursuit. So many wine courses require you to sit in classrooms, and memorise textbooks, these sorts of wine courses originate from teaching the trade. But for many of us, there's a better way.

Booking is necessary as the wine tasting is limited to 25 people maximum. The entrance fee is £35 advance payment (£40 on the night). Please note a cancellation made within 72 hours of the wine tasting is non-refundable - A yearly membership of £395 is available.
