This event occurred in the past

Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the Americas are home to some of the most dynamic and forward-thinking wine producers in the world, seeking to constantly push the boundaries of wine making, evolving, innovating and striving to create wines which are above all, delicious. 

These regions are bound together in their ability to produce wines across a variety of styles from easy drinking to elegant, that suit a range of preferences and budgets and they share many a grape variety (sauvignon blancs in Argentina and New Zealand, chardonnay and pinot noir from Chile and the USA, cabernet sauvignon in South Africa and Australia) but it is as much their differences as their similarities which make them special.

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. 

Do you send physical tickets or is it all e-tickets? 

We no longer send out physical tickets for our events. An email confirming registration will be sent to the member who has purchased the ticket(s) and this email can be used as confirmation upon arrival at the event.  

Can I bring a non-member? 

Yes. Tickets must be booked by a member, but you are welcome to bring non-member guests.

Do I need to know lots about wine to attend?

Absolutely not! Our events target a range of experience and knowledge levels, and we try to make this clear on our event pages. If you’re unsure if an event is for you, simply contact and we will try to help.

Do I get a discount on wines after events?

After our ‘in person’ events, we offer attendees a 10% discount on the wines we have shown, subject to availability. You will be provided with a private code after attending the event to redeem the discount

What is your cancellation policy?
