The ABC of Wine

Join us for a fun and engaging wine tasting experience within our atmospheric covered cloisters area.

The ABC of Wine – not only an introduction to wine tasting, but reference to the phrase ‘Anything But Chardonnay’. This wine tasting will challenge your preconceptions of wine and include some top tips for your next supermarket visit as well as help you pair the right wines with the right foods.

Tony Elvin of the Wine Events Company will coach you through the basics of tasting, looking at quality, aromas and tastes.

You’ll taste six different wines including examples of grape varieties from different countries, discovering the impact that climate, food and production methods can make on the taste of the wine in your glass.
