Description

Enjoy a Champagne reception in the Pickering Cellar before a two-hour session designed to build your confidence in wine tasting. No matter your level of expertise, you will have numerous thoughts and impressions the moment a wine hits your palate. At this event, your host will teach you to trust these instincts, helping you grow in confidence. Tasting through eight wines from around the world, including wonderful examples from Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Barolo, you will learn to identify acidity, tannin, alcohol and the age of a wine. You will leave a more self-assured taster, equipped to discover which wines you do and don’t like, and – even more importantly – why. Hosted by Rebecca Lamont, Head of Wine School

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.
