Let’s share a glass

There’s no better way to explore the wonderful world of wine than by coming to one of our tastings.

We’ve taken our first steps towards normality with the return of instore tasting events, in distanced bubbles after closing time. However given the most recent guidance, we are reverting back to the Zoom tastings that were so popular during our first two lockdowns.

Check out our events below, and stay in touch as we enjoy more wine events in store and online.

Would you like us to host a tasting, socially distanced in your garden? If so, drop us a line on 01865 661749 or info@grapemindsdrinkalike.co.uk


Focus on Italy – Tuscany v Piedmonte


Fine Italian reds are some of the wines that give us the most delight as a team here and the two most revered regions are Tuscany and Piemonte. Join us as we try a classic style of wine from each region (Vino Nobile de Montepulciano and Barbaresco) and talk through the differences between each wine and each region.

Tickets are £40 and includes delivery of both wines and an invitation to the zoom tasting.


Alsatian v German Riesling tasting


We have a huge passion for Riesling here at Grape Minds and as a result, we have ended up with a superb range of different Riesling’s from all over the world. Join us here as we try two from the ‘home’ of Riesling; Alsace and Germany.

We will try the hugely popular J. Hauller  & Fils Grand Cru Muenchberg 2015 Riesling from Alsace against the Von Hovel Hütte Grosses Gewächs 2015 Riesling.

Tickets are £40 and include both wines delivered to you and an invitation to the zoom tasting


Chateau Musar Zoom Tasting


Join us, with a representative from Chateau Musar as we try the newly released 2014 Red and the 2012 White. Chateau Musar are internationally renowned, producing world class wines from the Bekka Valley in Lebanon. Each year their wines are highly sought after and are often collected as vintage after vintage they produce stunning wines.

We will try both wines over the course of an hour, learning a little more about the vintage and the Chateau. The cost of the tasting is £60 and includes two bottles of wine delivered to your door, and the invitation to the zoom tasting.
