Introduction to Bordeaux, Monday 30th September 2019


Get to grips with Bordeaux as we guide you through the region, talking about its sub-regions, history and most significant wines. After a sparkling apéritif, you will try one of the region’s lesser-known styles and some entry-level Clarets, moving on to taste a flight of wines from famous names. Each glass will represent a renowned commune in Bordeaux, helping you to pin down the characteristics that typify each area. By comparing and contrasting the flavours and aromas in front of you, you will be sure to leave with a firmer grasp of the lie of Bordeaux’s land. Hosted by Barbara Drew MW, Wine and Spirits Education Specialist

Tutored Tastings

Tutored Tastings

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.
