We hope to get our physical events up and running again after lockdown ends, but in the meantime we have a roster of different online tastings scheduled (listed below). In normal times, our events are super popular and we think their virtual counterparts are just as entertaining and memorable (if you use a spittoon), so please do join us.And if you’d like us to organise a private or corporate event online just let us know.
Wine Therapy | Festive Fortifieds & Friends
Have you ever thought of all the offerings out there for fortified festive drinks, why oh why in the UK we’re so blinkered into drinking just Port? Well we have….. so with the upcoming Christmas festive feasting period (sorry I know we’re not supposed to talk about it for another month!) we thought it was time that we gave the stage to the delights of fortified wines and not exclusively ports. • Barbeito Rainwater Reserva (100ml) • Maesto Sierra Amontillado (100ml) • Niepoort Late Bottled Vintage (100ml) • La Giaretta della Valpolicella Amarone Classico, 2016 (100ml) • Domaine Rene Renou Bonnezeaux 'Melleresses', 1999 (100ml) • Maesto Sierra Pedro Ximenez (100ml) Ticket price includes the three 750ml wines, joining instructions and the Zoom meeting link (this will be emailed prior to the event) and the subsequent 1-hr YouTube recording.
Premier Crew Club Evening
Premier Crew Club evenings have always been informal and fun - an opportunity to meet the team and get to know each over a glass of wine. We’re inviting you to join us for one more tasting session before Christmas, so get those Santa hats on and jingle bells jangling! Of course we're only joking; we’ll be doing our best not to get too carried away with the festive excitement, but instead bring you some wines that are ideal for the time of year, Brussels sprouts or no Brussels sprouts. Join the Honest Grapes wine gurus and Premier Crew Club members for three fantastic organic bottles as we head in to December with some festive fun to accompany some fabulous wines. • Quinta Das Maias Branco, 2019 (750ml) • Poggio Argentiera, Maremmante Rosso, 2019 (750ml) • Celler Alimara Pinzellada Negre, 2016 (750ml) Ticket price includes the three bottles, joining instructions and Zoom meeting link (this will be emailed prior to the event) and the subsequent 1-hr YouTube recording. £7.50 delivery, or free delivery over £75.
The Grand Crew Review with Tom & Charlie
Please join us on Tuesday 8th December at 6:30pm when Tom Harrow and his trusty sidekick wine guru Charlie Goblet d’Alviella will be looking back at the vinous year that was 2020 (we promise that virus discussion will be verboten!) and more excitingly, at 2021 and the vinous delights to come. This will be a chance to consider what 2020 release wines you should have in your portfolio if you don’t already; we will be digging deeper into the upcoming Burgundy 2019 releases, and have a brief discussion on 2021 releases that shouldn't be missed before Tom and Charlie battle it out with their personal recommendations for the festive drinking season. So choose a bottle of something to make other Grand Crew members jealous and join us for a relaxed fireside evening discussing our favourite subject!
