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 lockdown.
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 email@example.com

Valdespino is one of the oldest bodegas in Jerez, with a history of Sherry production going back six centuries. Back in 1264, Alfonso Valdespino was one of 24 knights who fought against the Arabs for the city of Jerez with King Alfonso X. As a reward for his efforts he was given land that formed the basis of the bodega. Today Valdespino belongs to the Estevez family, who purchased the bodega in 1999.
We will be joined by Ignacio Lopez of Liberty Wines who will present Bodegas Valdespino and taste some amazing sherry with us. The three Sherries we will try are:
Tio Diego Amontillado
El Candado Pedro Ximenez
Tickets are £50 and include a bottle of all three, delivered to your door.
Democratic wines, based in Catalunya, Spain, really do not mind rocking the boat. Their wines that we stock have two of the most memorable labels, featuring basque slurs or insults that have over time dropped out of the language. Despite their quirky branding, their wines are superb. We stock a Xarel-Lo white wine that has seen some skin contact and is almost verging on being orange, whilst their red (called El Cabronet) is one of the lightest bodied Cabernet Sauvignon’s you will ever try.
We will be joined by our supplier Michael Taylor, a long friend of Graeme’s and an MW student who will share his knowledge of not just these wines, but the industry as a whole. We will start with a wonderful Cava Rosado followed by these two wines Tickets are £45 and include the three bottles delivered to your door!
