Hire Our Wine Bar


Looking for a venue for a private party, corporate event or tutored tasting? We can help!


The upstairs Wine Bar in our South Kensington shop is available to hire for small private events. There is no charge to hire the room, but there is a minimum £500 spend. This can be spent on wine from the shop, tasting cards or one of our tasting events (see below). Maximum capacity is for 30 people.




We offer a range of different tastings, ideal as pre-dinner entertainment, birthday parties or corporate entertaining. Great fun whatever your level of knowledge, minimum 15 people, each lasting 60-90 mins. Choose from the selection below (although of course we are always happy to tailor events to your individual requirements):




This lasts for about an hour and includes 6 different wines. It is an introduction to how to taste wine and the most important grape varieties, both white and red. From £25 per person.




This fun tasting consists of 8 different wines, all served blind. We give a brief intro to the wines and the challenge is then to guess which one is which, with a bottle of Champagne for the winner. From £35 per person.




Cheese and wine are often considered perfect partners. But you have to get it right for the results to be delicious! We'll show you which wines to choose to accompany different types of cheese and why they work, as we make our way through 6 wines and 6 cheeses. From £50 per person.




Bordeaux is the most famous and rewarding of all wine regions, and we'll taste through 8 wines of different vintages all the way from a Cru Bourgeois right up to a mature First Growth. From £100 per person.
