Event details

Virtual wine tasting

Join us for a tasting of four top-quality European wines from the comfort of your own home. This virtual tasting will be hosted by Lydia Harrison MW via Zoom. Each of the four half bottles of wine has been carefully selected from the Little Fine Wine Company as examples of premium quality wines that express the typical style and character of their region. On the evening we will talk about each of the regions and wines, the story behind them, before tasting each sample together.

How will it work? 

  • Upon booking you will receive an email requesting delivery details. You'll receive a pack of four different half bottles by post ahead of the tasting.* 
  • Spaces will be limited to keep the more intimate feel of our in-person events, and so each person can have time to ask questions of the educator if they wish  
  • The tasting will last up to two hours 
  • You will receive printable tasting sheets and mats via email 
  • On the day of the tasting, you will receive an email with a Zoom link to join the events
  • All you need to have is some wine glasses, a bottle opener and a device with an internet connection
  • Wine samples can be delivered to any mainland UK address, excluding Highlands and Islands. Unfortunately, samples cannot be delivered to Northern Ireland or outside of the UK
  • The cost is per screen so are you welcome to share the wines with other members of your household (if you want to)!
