Wine Tasting

Join us for a fun an informal evening sampling 30 different wines

Friday 15 December 19:00 to 21:00

Join us for a fun and informal evening tasting popular wines in a head to head challenge to help decide our new wine supplier.

We have 30 bottles of wine from prospective suppliers to help us determine the wines our customers like best. We’ll have three groups with about 10 people in each group. One for Red wines, one for White and one for Rose/Sparkling. Each person will have 9-12 wines to taste, but you’re welcome to try more, if your palate and head can manage it!

We’re not looking for wine experts, but rather a representative cross section of our regular customers. You’ll be blind tasting three wines of the same variety and scoring them against each other to tell us your favourite. For example, there will be three Chardonnay to try, three Rioja, three Zinfandel, etc.

If you know your wine, great! If you just know what you like, perfect! We stress this is not a formal wine tasting; just a chance to try some different wines and share your opinions about which you like best.

If you’d like to join us, please call the hotel at 01769 580345 or email We need about 10 people in each group, but there’ll be extra wine, if you want to taste a particular wine not in your group.

There is a nominal £10 charge per head to help cover costs and we do ask that if you’re thinking of attending, you make suitable and responsible arrangements for travel.

As an added treat, local wine maker, Ten Acres Vineyard will be attending with a selection of their sparkling wines to sample. We hope to see you at the event!
