Fine Wine Wednesdays

Our Fine Wine Wednesday tastings are held every week at 7pm. These tastings are hosted, informal, seated tastings with hosts including Kingsley Wood, Andrew Rawlins & Wine Orbit's Sam Kim, or on occasions, visiting winemakers & Masters of Wine. Most of the time the wines are tasted blind. Expect to have a few laughs at these tastings – you will not only learn a lot about wine, you will have fun at the same time.

There is no requirement to book for our Fine Wine Wednesdays tastings and the cost is usually $15 per person unless otherwise stated. Check out our upcoming themes and events below.

Super Tastings

Every now and then we like to open some special bottles of wine, either from our cellar or ones that you may never buy for yourself but would like to try. These Super Tastings are more formal and a bit more expensive depending on what wines we are opening. Numbers for Super Tastings are strictly limited and payment must be made in advance.

Saturday Challenge

For those who like to participate in wine options, we open three wines every Saturday for you to practice your wine options skills. You can call into the shop anytime between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. to test your skills and there is no charge for this. All the names of the people with the correct answers are put into a draw and a winner is announced at the following Fine Wine Wednesday. The lucky winner receives a bottle of each of the three wines as their prize.
