Burgundy / Sunday 24th March /  4pm / £20 Islington

We love the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Burgundy, but the region can be a bit puzzling and intimidating to understand. Fear not! We will be exploring the region -  tasting the whites and reds of many of the different villages, and learning about the many fantastic winemakers and vintages that make this area so highly reagrded. 

Phone 020 7226 9500 to book.

Women in Wine  / Wednesday 20th March / 7.30pm / £20 Putney

As a belated celebration of International Women’s Day we’ll be trying six delicious wines made by women. The wines will be varied focusing on the interesting stories of these female winemakers who have been so  successful in this industry dominated by men (often wearing red trousers).

Phone 020 3935 1047 to book.


Let Me Be Sancerre / Sunday 31st March / 4pm / £25 Putney

When it comes to Savy B, we’ve all heard of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé but the Loire Valley offers so much more when it comes to whites. From Cremant to Muscadet, Vouvray to Chinon—there’s so much to enjoy!

Phone 020 3935 1047 to book.


"E tu Brut?" - The Disarming of Sparkling Wine Friday 15th March / 4pm / £40 Wimbledon

What exactly is BRUT, anyway? With the Ides of March around the corner, Caeser's famous dying phrase (according to Shakespeare) allows for some wordplay - and a very good excuse to explore all that sparkles. We'll be sabring (perhaps) White, Rosé and Red sparklers and getting to grips with what all the terms mean, like Brut, Cremant, Charmat and Traditional. And, like any good bubble, you'll be rising to the top!

Phone 020 8947 4029 to book.
