This event occurred in the past

To ensure we’re getting our exclusive 150th wines into as many members’ hands as possible, we’re taking the core of our Anniversary Fairs on the road, travelling the length and breadth of the country. These tastings offer the opportunity to sample never-before-tasted wines and continue celebrating our anniversary year in style. 

This tasting will showcase wines celebrating the third 50-year era of our history from 1974-2024, with over 30 wines available to sample from some of our top producers. 

For a range of styles to suit all palates at various prices, all hand selected (and in many cases co-created) by our expert team of buyers, this is a tasting not to be missed. 


Wines 30 & 31 will be tasted blind and revealed during the event.
