After 12 tasty years, we are taking a pandemic holiday to restructure. Our current plans are to evolve with how the social world is changing with the aim to launch a new programme with fabulous new partners, experiences and people to meet in 2022
In the meantime, if you would like to keep in touch, my personal facebook page is facebook.com/xNikiStone
Join us for a fantastic evening tasting fine wines, and meeting fine people. You'll enjoy an evening of socialising and an hour of interactive wine education. We make learning about wine fun SOCIAL, entertaining, so expect a lot humour, fun facts, story telling and mixing with like minded people.
Please note, this tasting starts at 7pm, however, you can arrive from 6pm to socialise. Easy to get to venue, one minute walk from the tube 🙂
Each month is a new learning theme... Get a quick fix and learn a thing or two about wine with Tastour.
Around 40-50 wine lovers gather at this event – it’s more informal than a guided Tastour tasting and it's just as much fun.
At this tasting you'll learn the difference between the classic wine regions, plus a few fun nuggets to share at your next dinner party.
Cost of the wine tasting:
£15 for Non Members, £20 if not booked onlined 24hrs in advance
FREE for Bon Vivant Members, why not join today? Membership is £70 per year and includes 10 socialTASTING's, and tickets to various tastings hosted by our partners such as Decanter. For more information visit: http://tastour.com/member-registration/

You’ll enjoy a presentation on three fine wines, from different regions. The wines will be of exceptional quality. The price
of the wine if purchased at a restaurant would be between £12-17 per 125ml glass, depending on the wines selected. You will receive 125ml of wine.
The formal part of the guided tasting will last around 45 minutes with some socialising mixed in, however, many guest will continue to network throughout the evening.
You will leave this event, feeling well educated and hopefully a few new friends to explore London with.
Time: The doors open for check-in at 6:00 pm. The tasting starts at 7:00pm and ends at 8:30pm. However, most people stay on for a bit of social and drink after the tasting.
The food at the pub is really great. I organise a massive sharing dinner for everyone that is interested after the tasting; which includes steak, prawns and all sorts of yummy veggie treats too. The cost is £10 and is collected in cash on the night.
We often go out dancing afterwards, so just ask if you are interested.
The Walrus and The Carpenter takes its name from a poem by Lewis Carroll. The verse is recited by Tweedledum and Tweedledee in 'Through The Looking Glass'. We stand in the shadow of history, in view of The Monument to commemorate the Great Fire of London. The column's height marks the distance to the site of Thomas Farynor's bakery in Pudding Lane where the fire began.
