Events & Wine Tastings

Here's a list of 'What's on Tasting' over the next few weeks


Wednesday 21 November & Thursday 22 November 2012

At the recent Irish Wine Show, there were 2 Overall winners and 13 Gold Star Winning wines, of which - we are delighted to say - we stock most of them! We'll be tasting these winning wines, and a few recent Wines Of The Week from the Irish Times in both shops in a couple of weeks time. We'll be tasting them in different shops on different night so pick a night that suits!

The wines will be open for the evening for you to call in at your convenience but booking is required.

Just email, to let us know which night you will be tasting and how many in your group.
