Chester - 150 years of growing together - growers walkaround tasting
For 150 years our buyers have nurtured and developed relationships with the world's top vine growers and wine producers. Come and meet Society suppliers from Italy, Greece, England, the United States and France who will pour wine and talk to you about their passion.
The Society’s and The Society’s Exhibition Ranges are wines of which our buyers are inordinately proud. The growers we blend these wines with are among our most loyal and longest-standing. This tasting is all about them. We are showing not only the own-label wines they make for us, but also a selection of the other wines we take from them. It’s a great opportunity to get up close and personal to both the wines and the people who make them.
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.
Growers represented at the tasting include the Rhône Valley's Clos des Cazaux, Greece's Apostolos Thymiopoulos and England's Three Choirs Vineyard.
These events are all about ensuring our members get to taste as many of our wines as possible. They vary in size and theme, but all provide a relaxed environment for our members to guide their own tasting with a glass and booklet provided on arrival. Whether you want to discover something new, reconnect with an old favourite or try a wine you’d never ordinarily approach, then our walkaround tastings could be for you.
