Reading, 15:00 - Reading: Introduction to Wine Tasting with Supper

November 5 @ 15:00 - 20:30


Come and experience our most popular event – Starting with English Fizz, with a delicious two-course supper surrounded by 12 more superb wines. Friendly, informal, and fun – no previous experience necessary – Sit back and relax with delicious wines!

Our Introduction to Wine Saturday is one of the most popular beginners tastings we run. Kick back, relax and enjoy the ambiance as we spend the whole day tasting, learning about, and enjoying our wine…

Starting with an overview of winemaking, you’ll quickly get to grips with the role of grape variety, climate, wine-making techniques, and even soil types.

We’ll show you how to swirl, sniff and slurp like the pros and you’ll be introduced to a wide range of different wine styles. You can expect some of your favourites to crop up… Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec, Rioja… but also a few newcomers join the party… Albarino, Northern Rhone Syrah, and even a dry Riesling.

Learn the basics of wine labelling terminology, how to pair food and wine, how to select wines to suit your taste, how much to spend on a bottle of wine, and how to squeeze more enjoyment out of every drop!
