The Wine Gang – Christmas Fair

If you’d like a cracking day out in London, and drink some fantastic wine to boot, check out the Wine Gang Christmas Fair – Saturday 29th October.

Early bird tickets are now on sale for £15 each, and there’s opportunity to also book tickets for some excellent tutored tastings.  More details are available on The Wine Gang Website.

You don’t have to be a member of The Wine Gang to attend their tasting, but if you’re interested in a monthly round up of the best wines, by some of the key players in the industry, they currently have a special offer.  They are giving away a pack of the fun Wine Trumps card game (the wine version of top trumps) to all new members taking their £19.99 annual subscription. As the game is worth over £9.00, it’s a great time to join the Gang!

We don’t have any affiliation with The Wine Gang, but they do help us drink quality wine!

Next Tasting – Friday 8th July

In July we welcome Andrew Barraclough who will be presenting wines from Grove Mill.
