We’ve decided to let our hair down a bit this time round and instead of an ‘educational’(!) themed tasting, we’ll be doing a ‘Call my Bluff’ tasting quiz - a format that always makes for a great fun, competitive event, and a good way to while away a Sunday afternoon, in our opinion!
We’ll be pouring 6 wines, including a fizz to kick things off, and with each wine our panel of 3 experts will try to convince you that their description is the correct one. Of course, each time, two of the panellists will be bluffing, and it’s up to you to decide which. Extra points will be given for guessing the retail price of each wine, and we’ll ask you to rate each wine before we tell you what it is, so we can see which wines prove most popular when tasted blind. Most, if not all, the wines will be ones we don’t currently stock, so your choices will also help us choose which we should be making a regular feature here. And what’s more, the winning team can choose a bottle of their favourite to take home.
Having said that this a less ‘educational’ tasting, in actual fact a blind tasting, particularly when you’re being given three convincing, yet contrasting, accounts of what the wine in the glass actually is, can be quite an education in just how much you know about wine, or indeed just how difficult wine tasting can be - depending on how you approach it!
So - we need teams! Of whatever size you like, even just yourself.
We’ve tried to keep the cost down as much as we can, to allow as many people to be able to get involved as possible: the more, the merrier! But to do this I’m afraid we’re not able to include the usual nibbles in the ticket price - instead we’ll be offering a 20% discount on food served during the event, if it’s pre-ordered and paid before the day of the event itself. Here’s a link to our current food menu below, please call or email us with a pre-order.
The tasting is at 4pm on Sunday 14th July. Tickets are £15 each, and can be booked by calling 01273 567176, emailing us at email@example.com, or booking online below.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
