Tasting Events

Our whisky events are often booked to capacity the second we announce them. As such, we have added these additional events to our calendar this year.

You can enquire about each event using the form at the bottom of the page, or by calling us on 01756 700886.

Our in-store wine tastings are free – there’s no booking required, however once the wine is gone – it’s gone! (So come earlier rather than later in the day!!).

Wines of South Africa with Richard Kelly MW

Beyond the periphery of South Africa’s conventional vineyard regions lie great vinous treasures, resigned to anonymity; forgotten, abandoned or just simply undiscovered. It is the mission of Rick, Richard Kelley’s alter-ego and our intrepid Cape Crusader, to seek out and liberate these rare wines, consigning them to the table of most inquisitive and discerning imbiber. Each episode represents a single discovery; a precious parcel that is both unique and finite.
