What To Expect At Our Tastings
Our tasting events are informal & informational, focused on whether You like the wine or not. We try not to lead you too much, allowing you to gather the tastes that you sense from the wine and how it fits into your wine-drinking world. Every guest is different, each of our palates is unique and our experience in cultures, cuisines & company all shape our tastes.
So our best suggestion is that a tasting allows us to try a range of 6 wines close together, from which the differences and similarities stand out much clearer than a taste today, compared with a taste another. Palate memory is built like every other muscle so taste often, even the wines you think you don't like, because you are constantly changing and you just never know!
We gather just before 7 PM, guests are sat on tables of 8 or at the counter, sharing the experience with others enhances your experience as you chat, taste & listen, we go straight to pouring the first sample, and offering up some of the background of the winery, region, varietal and our understanding of why they taste as they do. We serve a light cheese & fruit platter to pick at throughout the tasting. A sales sheet is presented along with any info the Winery offered as far as inventory. If you care to order, will confirm all the details with you and alert you as soon as it has arrived
