Who It's For

A fun and approachable tasting, designed for those wanting to explore the beauty, complexity and diversity of American wines, whilst being entertained and educated in equal measure.

What It's About

California is well known for producing excellent quality wines, with the most common grape varieties being Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel. While we love all of these wines very much, California has a lot more to offer! This tasting will take you through the lesser-known varieties produced across the state, and different production styles too.

We will take you on a journey through the under-represented side of California's wine scene, with 5 unique wines, showcasing the amazing flavours of these grapes and the talent of smaller, often family or friend-owned producers. Sip and discover the histories of the producers, grape varieties and wine growing regions and understand how the unique geologies or the land impact the final product!

Our Californian inspired events space will transport you across the pond where you will acquire lots of fun facts and stories from our highly knowledgeable staff, and - of course - enjoy a selection of standout wines as we learn about what makes them truly special.

We will dive deeply into the fun and unique side of America’s grape varieties; highlight the importance of geography on the diversity grape varietals; and look at how winemakers tease out and complement their characteristics, in turn, composing delicious bottles we want to open again and again.
