The Art of Bubbles

Nothing gets a party going like sparkling wine and particularly Champagne! But have you ever wondered how this came about? How they make that wine fizz or what is the difference between a Vintage and a Non Vintage? Well now is your chance to find out.

Asian Influences

The Middle and Far East have had a huge influence on the food we eat today, with many spices, cooking methods and ingredients having a profound effect on a great number of dishes, but also on the wines we drink with them.
Join us for a tasting of wines that are excellent matches for these oriental flavours, from delicate lemongrass and ginger to the fruitiest of curries.
