Join us as we learn the techinques to hand paint our own wine glasses in beautiful hidden wine bar, Pall Mall. You’ll be able to travel without leaving your glass, as this wine bar reminds me of a sitting room in an apartment in Paris.
This event is limited to 12 Tastourians
No art skills are required. Stencils for the design on the glasses will allow even the shakiest hands can produce beautiful hand painted glasses.
About the event:
Hand painted wine glasses have created a frenzy in the shops and command a price tag of £30 each! Join us in this new craze and create your own personalised, unique set of glasses at this exclusive Tastour event. It’s easy and incredibly therapeutic!
Our last ‘Drink and Draw’ was a huge success. I’ve changed the format slightly to make it more afforable.
PS – The Glasses make excellent birthday and wedding presents – perfect for Christmas too!!!
Join us to celebrate the art of wine and food!

Tucked away in the Royal Opera Arcade between Piccadilly and Haymarket lies Pall Mall Fine Wines. A boutique wine shop and bar. We pride ourselves on serving the best wine, with the best charcuterie with the best atmosphere. So why don’t you come in and join us for a glass or two or three which always leads onto another bottle.
Jay Rayer, renowned food critic of The Guardian says…
‘…try wines by the glass from an exceptional list both in terms of breadth and price. There’s cheese and charcuterie to soak up the booze. Just don’t tell everyone about it.’
Pall Mall Fine Wines is located in the Royal Opera arcade off Charles II street in the west end of London.
