Christmas Party Tasting Packages

We have designed three wine tasting packages for the Christmas season which are ideal for a party or gathering with friends or colleagues. Each one includes a welcome glass of fizz, a structured tasting of 5 wines (100ml pour per wine, a larger measure than with our regular tastings) including one port, sharing platters of artisan cheese and charcuterie and a personalised wine list for your event. We felt that larger quantities of fewer wines was the way to go in the festive season to allow you a more social experience with less interruptions from us! Of course we will talk you through each wine and will be checking in to answer any questions you have. We require a minimum of 12 people for these events and full payment (for 12 attendees at least) in advance is necessary to secure a booking.
The tasting itself should last about one hour and a half, so we suggest you start before 8pm as this will allow you time to get in some more wine before last orders at 10pm should you wish to continue the party.
Finally, as with our Thursday Tastings, if you decide to purchase any wines to take away we will treat you to a 10% discount.
