Blind Tasting: Sparkling Wines, Wednesday 15th March 2017


If you've ever wondered what the difference is between Crémant and Cava or want to see what all the fuss is about English Sparkling Wine, this event is for you. Barbara will guide you through the world of sparkling wine, looking at why different countries and regions produce such different styles, tasting the best of what each has to offer. We’ll be tasting the wines blind to ensure we focus on what’s in the glass rather than on the label and putting your tasting skills to the test to see whether you can distinguish Champagne from a New World imitator. The evening will be ideal for WSET and MW students, or those wanting to understand more about the world of sparkling wine. Hosted by Barbara Drew, Wine and Spirit Education Specialist

Tutored Tastings

Tutored Tastings

Unfortunately, we have postponed all events at our St James’s premises until the start of July. We are constantly reassessing the situation and considering the feasibility of events after this date. In the meantime, we are offering virtual tastings online. We’ll arrange delivery of wines, glasses and a corkscrew to your guests ahead of a guided tasting with one of our expert hosts. For more information, please contact us.

Treat yourself, your family or a client to one of our exclusive tutored or walkaround wine tastings. One of our experts will guide you through a range of wines while educating you on the evening’s topic. From blind tastings to producer focusses, these are unmissable chances to broaden your wine knowledge.

At our walkaround tastings, a selection of fascinating wines will be set out for you to explore, with an expert on hand to elucidate on the evening’s theme.

The Napoleon Cellar and the Pickering Cellar provide the perfect venues for your tutored wine tastings.

Sussex cellar is our newest event space with terracotta archways and intimate yet contemporary feel. Design influences hail from Spanish wine cellars or Bodegas, and use handmade London tiles to create archways and columns that extend through both the mezzanine and the sub-basement level of the cellars.
