Attention, Tastorians! This is not your ordinary stuffy old tasting! Tastour’s fun night of learning is filled with one-liners, anecdotes and eye-popping facts.
Most people say they want to learn about wine, but often they can’t find the time for a course or don’t want to get bogged down with the details.
This wine tasting is all about having fun, teaching you to spot the bargains, and catching up with friends.
This educational and thoroughly social Guided Tasting will encourage you to appreciate wine for more than just its comforting qualities!
After this tasting, you’ll be able to shop smarter, and can certainly impress your friends with your new-found knowledge.

What is speedTASTING?
SpeedTasting is not only a great way to have fun with friends, and to make new and interesting ones, but you can do it in a relaxed, fun social environment whilst tasting and learning a thing or 2 about your favourite wines! What could be better?
There are 6 different learning themes, introduced in rounds by your friendly and professional host who, by the way, is just bursting with entertaining and memorable wine facts and tips. After each round, you move onto a different table where you are greeted with new, friendly faces and another set of generous tasting samples. The unique samples are a superb talking point and will really get your tongues wagging!
In just over 2 and a half hours, and with carefully organized seat swaps, you will have met and engaged with most of the other attendees. You’ll also have enjoyed a Tastour of no less than 10 different wines. This means learning about and savoring each one of them, whilst in the company of interesting and like-minded people who are all there for the same reason as you: to enjoy new experiences and to socialise.
Not only will you discover just how diverse taste can be, you’ll learn more about your own taste preferences, some which may even surprise you! And who knows? You may just develop some new friendships!
Attending on your own? Don’t be nervous! Many attendees will be on their own and our events are designed to make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive.
If attending with your partner or friends, and you’d like people to join your table you may sit in pairs of 2. You may also have your own table upon request (subject to availability)
