Join Julia Lambeth DipWSET for this intermediate level virtual tasting featuring four different fine wines from two famous grape varieties.

Event details

Join us for a tasting of top-quality wines from the comfort of your own home. This virtual tasting event will be hosted by Julia Lambeth DipWSET 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 the grape variety whilst also exhibiting elements of location and winemaking that will make for an interesting comparison. On the evening we’ll discuss the grape varieties, their wine regions and stories behind them, before tasting each wine 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 (see booking conditions below)
  • Spaces will be limited to maintain the intimate feel of our in-person events, and so each person will have the opportunity to ask questions of the educator
  • The tasting will last up to two hours
  • You will receive printable tasting sheets and mats via email
  • On the day of the tasting, or shortly before, you will receive an email with a Zoom link to join the events
  • All you need 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)!
