Wine Events

On a regular basis we run FREE Open House Tastings, Tutored Tastings and events with other businesses including Long Sunday Lunches

Our Free Open House Tasting are informal days when we have a selection of wines open for you to taste. There is no need to book  just pop in and enjoy the wines. We will be on hand should you wish to ask any questions but it is all very relaxed and fun!

Our Tutored Tastings are a slightly more formal evening event taken by an expert from the world of wine. In the last year speakers have presented evenings such as Food & Wine Matching,  South African wines, Rhone Wines and Australian Wines.

We have more Tutored evenings  planned  so scroll down to see the details.

If you would like to have a PRIVATE TASTING  with a group of family/friends just give us a call/email and we will be delighted to put together some wines for you to taste. 

Just contact us for BOOKINGS and any ENQUIRIES.

J.Elder, Dartmouth

‘As a complete novice I went on this course for fun and was really surprised at how much I learned in a day. Jonathan’s and Suzie’s passion to share their knowledge is at the base of this fun filled, professionally run and educational course and I have been genuinely amazed at the change I found in appreciating my wine. A whole world of tasting fun has opened up and I truly recommend this lovely course!  And thank you for the fabulous home cooked lunch and all your care and attention to make it so unfortgetable’
