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
For us at Grape Minds, Champagne Louis Roederer are at the absolute top of the Grand Marques when you combine quality of champagne and affordability. Established in 1776 it is still under the family run ownership of the Rouzaud family.
Not only do their champagnes taste great, they are farming organically and biodynamically too and produce one of the most Iconic Champagne’s in the world ‘Cristal’.
We will be joined by Brand Manager and master of wine student Alex Tiling as she talks us through the Roederer NV Brut, their flagship cuvee and their 2013 Vintage cuvee.
It is £100 for the pair (cheaper than the cost of the two bottles) and this includes the link to the zoom tasting and delivery of the two bottles of champagne.
The wines of Bordeaux are classical at any time of year, let alone Christmas, but what does it mean when you hear ‘left bank claret’. How do you know whether your wine has more Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon and what do the wines or Margaux/St Estephe/St Emillion/Pomerol taste like and what are their differences.
Join us for an our long tasting as we try two classical wines, one from each bank and discuss why these wines are so special.
We love Burgundy here at Grape Minds and so do our customers! We came across Domaine Faiveley as we were setting the shop up in 2018 and their Mercurey ‘Clos Rochette’ Blanc has been a stalwart of our range ever since gaining many loyal customers.
Recently, we have added their Mercurey Rouge to our range and these two will make a wonderful duo for a classical Burgundian tasting a week before Christmas!
The tasting will be £45 for the two bottles delivered to your door and we are sure it will be a hit!
