Upcoming Events:


A tasting where we do set out to see the different styles offered by different parts of the world!

Full details to follow shortly HERE

This tasting is €25.00 per person, and includes nibbles etc
You can save 10% when you book 4 or more ONLINE!


Weekly In-Store Tastings, Friday to Sunday

Every weekend (Friday - Sunday) we taste a couple of new or interesting wines, and offer 20% discount while they are on tasting!

We do vary the wines weekly, but always try to offer something interesting to try. There is no sense in our view in tasting a wine you've tried numerous times before.

Wines on tasting each weekend are posted on our Facebook page -
