Vintage Pairs Events

Join us for our "Vintage Pairs" Blind Tasting on Wednesday 12th June 2019

The idea is simple – I put together a tasting of 10 wines, and serve them blind. We guess where the wine is from and what it might be, reveal it, enjoy it, and talk about it. In each pair the two wines will be either the same wine in a different vintage (our classic approach), or the same producer and same vintage, but two cuvées or vineyards from the same grape variety(ies); or the same vineyard and same vintage, but two different producers of the same wine. As we begin each pair I will announce which type of pair it is. 

Here is what we served at the last 3 events –

Of course, the wine selection for Wednesday 12th June will be completely different. But I assure you it will be interesting, and good value for the modest ticket price – we won’t reveal in advance what we will be tasting as that spoils part of the fun.

The event is a tasting – not a dinner – and so we start at 6.45pm prompt, and are finished by 8pm, so you can get to your dinner afterwards. Think of this as the most fun ‘cocktail hour’ of the month!
