Sherry Tasting

Last month saw our first ever Sherry Tasting evening.

We love sherry, its diversity, its heritage, and the great combinations you can get with food. During the evening, people get to understand more about the history of Sherry, where and how different Sherry's are made, along with some tips to help you find your perfect Sherry. The atmosphere was terrific - everyone had fun, people learnt something new, and some new friendships were made!

We have more sherry tasting evenings planned.  Take a look at some of the up coming dates by clicking here, or ask one of our team for more information.

Wine & Spirit Education Trust - Approved Programme Provider!!

The Wine Parlour has become a certified WSET Approved Programme Provider and we are very excited!

The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) is the leading international body in the field of wines and spirits education. Their courses provide internationally recognised qualifications which are suitable for wine industry professionals as well as enthusiasts who want to develop their knowledge.  As a WSET Approved Programme Provider, The Wine Parlour can now offer all their qualifications.  We already have Level 1 and 2 courses underway in our Tasting Room on Tuesday evenings and Saturday afternoons.  Don't be shy, have a look through the window to see our students hard at work (or tasting wine!!) 

Courses are held in an enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere and led by one of our WSET qualified tutors.  If you are not sure if a WSET qualification is right for you, come and talk to Chix.  She can advise whether it's the right step or perhaps one of our informal courses will better match what you are looking for.

The Wine Festival

This year, Chix & Buck hosted their first ever Wine Festival here at The Wine Parlour in Brixton.

The weekend long celebration of wine featured guided wine tastings, a pop-up restaurant in conjunction with The Pickled Fork, a panel discussion with restaurateurs and food writers, the opportunity to meet our winemakers, and  fun wine quiz on the Sunday afternoon.

Throughout the weekend Chix and her team were offering guided wine flights and top tips to help people really enjoy their wine.  As always there were plenty of opportunities to taste, drink and discover more about wine!
