Fine Wine Tasting in KnightsbridgeMap and Directions

About the tasting:

You’ll be welcomed with a taste of invigorating bubbles, and a delightlightful spread of fleshly sliced meats and fine cheeses (veggie options available).  For around an hour, you’ll have two wine experts enchanting you with tales of the tipple.

Fine Wine Tasting in KnightsbridgeAbout the wine:

The wines will be £10-25 There are some rather unusal finds here, so if you like your wines to be made off the beaten track, you’ll eyes will light up like kids in a candy shop at the selection!

Note on the change of venue:

I tried to phone most of those pre-paid today; however, instead of leaving a long-winded message, I thought I’d write instead.

In London, it seems that there are an endless number of new restaurants, and places for gourmet experiences. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult for gourmet deli’s to stay in business. We had a wonderful time at our last event and it’s with great regrets (and big shock) that Market Quarter has closed down this week.

One of the things I love most about London and Tastour for that matter, is that whenever one place shuts, it opens the door to explore something new.

I have been working away today to find a replacement and I’m confident that we will have an equally fine time at nearby Jeroboams. They even have a wonderful warm fireplace in their cellar.


About the shop:

Jeromboams is an institution in London.  They started as a Wine Merchant importing fine wine in the 1800’s and have been going strong since. The combination of historical oak pannel, fire places and fine wine makes this the dream relaxing afternoon

(I just ordered the truffled salt.  The aroma is amazing and a great quick cheat for pastas!)

After the tasting:

When I recently changed this event, and noted the Restaurant Racine, a member emailed and said ‘fine choice, one of my favourites in London.’  Enough said, right? Well this has been voted on of the Best French Bistro’s this side of the channel.  The have a set course lunch for £15 – and a good selection ala carte.
