How to Taste Wine / Sunday 12th May / 4pm / £20 Putney

We're all good at drinking, no problem there at all. But do we really understand and appreciate what goes on the the glass? Join Marion as she explains step by step how to taste wine from eye, to nose, to palate. There will be six wines covering a range of styles.

Phone 020 3935 1047 to book.


Spring Walkabout Tasting  Wimbledon / Sunday 12th May 1-6pm
30 of our newest and most favourite wines hand poured, with big discounts on the day.
Phone 020 8947 4029 to book


Time for a Tinto / Wednesday 15th May / 7pm / £25 Putney

Spanish wines are back by popular demand. We all know and love Rioja, yet there are so many other wonderful wines available. We'll try six delicious reds from lesser known regions and we might throw in a sparkling for good measure- we do love Cava!

Phone 020 3935 1047 to book.


Mighty Malbec / Sunday 19th May / 4pm / £20 Islington

Not, as the name of the tasting would suggest, a caped superhero but in fact an exploration of a robust and surprisingly diverse grape

variety. We’ll take you through a few of its glorious incarnations from rustic and  cutting edge Cahors to the modern styles of Argentina.

We’ll even have a sparkling Malbec...

Phone 020 7226 9500 to book.


2014 Red Burgundy / Islington / Wed 22nd May 7pm /  £50
A chance to taste some very nice Burgundy from the 2014 vintage, to see how it is progressing.

The vintage produced generous reds fruity and classically styled.

We'll have Grand Cru, Premier Cru and Villages wines to compare, with makers such as Meo Camuzet, Dujac, Hudelot Baillet, Rossignol Trapet and Grivot. Should be fun!

Rose and Beyond /  Wimbledon /  Sunday 31st May 7pm / £30

A thirst for Summer wine. Love Rose but stuck in Provence?

Join Will as he explores roses from around the world looking at different styles and techniques for making this iconic summer tipple.
Phone 020 8947 4029 to book

Cheese and Wine Pairing / Sunday 26th May / Putney 4pm / £45

We looooooove our cheeses and we’re really proud of the selection we get from Buchanan’s Cheesemonger.

  We’ll talk about and try  six scrumptious cheeses and their perfect wine partner. Champagne reception too.
