#WineWednesdays Tastings: Adding Value to the Experience

While the core of our business is in wine sales, we hold regular fortnightly Wine Wednesdays tastings where we offer our customers incredible opportunities to taste fine & rare wines in a casual and comparative fashion.  Guided by our knowledgeable staff, customers can choose from a variety of themes like verticals of Haut-Brion and Dom Pérignon Rosé to regional focuses in Chambolle Musigny or Piedmonte.  Offering something for customers from all walks of their wine life, whether a beginner in tasting the intricacies of wines from different terroirs, to veteran wine geeks and collectors. These tastings have become so popular that we have sold out almost every fortnight in 2018.
