Tastings

Meet the Wine Makers

Join us in our cellar, in the heart of our wine shop, where we will get up-close and personal with wine growers and makers from around the world. Up to 12 guests will enjoy a selection of wine in the intimate, hour-long tastings, with explanations provided by the makers themselves.

Places are limited and bookings are essential.

In 2017 we had the chance to welcome the wine makers from Snowden & Domaine de Triennes, La Rioja Alta, Vina Tondonia, Gosset Champagne, Klein Constantia, Rippon Vineyard, Luis Pato, Mulderbosch, Chris Mullineux, AR Lenoble Champagne, Andrea Sottimano and Tim Mondavi.

Our forthcoming events include:

Le Macchiole Wine Tasting Hosted by Gianluca Putzolu 6.30pm £35 per person FULLY BOOKED

25 February 2019

Initially put onto the wine map by Eugenio Campolmi in 1983, the Le Macchiole estate has been run by his wife Cinzia since 2002. In the heart of Bolgheri, with 22 hectares of vineyard over much of the best soils of the region these are, along with the Sassicaia and Ornellaia’s vineyards, also among the oldest and most established vines in Bolgheri. Their careful selection of grape varieties and cultivation techniques according to climate and soil has led them to concentrate on Merlot, Syrah and most importantly Cabernet Franc, a variety which can express itself so well in the hands of Le Macchiole.

Bouchon Family Wine Tasting Hosted by Julio Bouchon Jr 6.30pm £35 per person

12 March 2019

Winemaking is in Julio Bouchon’s blood. He was born in the winery and his fondest memories are talking about wines with his grandfather and father at the kitchen table. Julio is a journalist by trade but his passion for wine was nurtured and inspired by his father, Julio Bouchon Sr.
Bouchon’s family has been in the wine business for more than 130 years and is considered one of Chile’s foundation wine families. They own the Mingre Estate in the Maule Valley where the family’s winemaking facilities and vineyards are located today.
Julio Bouchon Jr. is the fourth generation of his family to continue the winemaking tradition in the area that is cut through by the Maule River.
