Round Europe wine tour
Join us for a new selection of courses that will take you on a tour of the wine world. Taking the classic wine regions from across Europe as our starting point, every month we concentrate on one country and the traditional wines it is recognised for, alongside some lesser known grape varieties.
In each session, you will briefly familiarise yourself with the culture and history of the country before delving into iconic grapes and styles of wine from the region. On occasion you will also be invited to compare the classic grapes of a region with those of the ‘new world’.
You can start the tour at any point during the year as this programme runs continuously on a Thursday every month. Make new friends, meet like minded people with an interest in wine and expand your wine knowledge. These evenings have an informal feel but are packed with information. Come along to just one class if there is a region or country that interests you, or visit 7 countries and receive 50% off the 8th class!
Each course typically includes five wines to try and artisan cheese and charcuterie to accompany the tasting. The evening will be hosted by a WSET certified wine tutor.
To purchase your tickets, simply select the course you wish to come for and the quantity of tickets you would like buy.
Gift Vouchers are also available. You can also book any of our courses by popping into The Wine Parlour or by telephone on 0203 302 1617. Email us if you have any questions or special requests.
The tastings run on Thursdays from 7.30pm - 9.30pm. All courses are £40
