Tastings and Events

Our unique programme of tastings and events offers something for every level of wine, spirits and sake enthusiast. From Burgundy to Agave and everything in-between, our schedule is varied and ever-changing.

  • Beginner – no previous tasting experience or subject knowledge is needed to enjoy these events
  • Intermediate – some tasting experience and subject knowledge is recommended to get the most out of these events (WSET Level 2 or above is beneficial)
