Dubai Wine Club Meetup

 

The key to the wine club is 'blind' tasting wines. It is a great and fun way to really 'taste' wine, and makes for fun conversation with your 'new' friends. After tasting, we then vote and see which wines are the most popular- the results are often surprising once the price and labels are shown!

We sit at tables of 10 and there are 6 bottles to be poured, by everyone at the table. The bottles are covered so no one knows what they are.

Taste and discuss with everyone at the table, vote on your first and second favorite,  and enjoy the socializing.

There is bread and water on the tables, and as the tasting progresses the hotel will serve a selection of appetizers.

Cost is AED 150 in advance simply email - [masked] - and they will send you an invoice to pay via PayPal or COD (delivered for cash) be sure to mention how many tickets you need; at the door the price will be slightly higher 175. Purchase your tickets today and look forward to seeing you!

    Congratulations to Meals n deals. Their website was down but they rallied round and made sure everyone who emailed instead got their tickets :)

    The evening was disappointing to be honest. Signing is was a slow process for some reason? Once inside the room was poor without a ceiling, too dark and very noisy. We were encouraged to only pour a small amount into our glass to ensure the last person would get some to taste. We did and the last person filled their glass! When I finished each glass it was then quickly taken away by the staff before I could get a second glass. 6 bottles per table of 10 people was not enough. More wine started at AED 200, which I thought was steep for an event. The food would have been ok if there were just three people at the table. Certainly not as good as previous events I’ve attended.

    I am usually a big fan of the media one hotel but the room we had was not suitable for this event. I found that it was not a social me set up and the room was to noisy to make conversation. This is my 1st event and not sure if I would rush back to be honest.

    A very enjoyable if slightly chaotic. Interesting selection of wines. Started quite late and I was expecting more food. Two canapés and a slightly stale breadstick didn't really do it for me and we finished too late for supper anywhere.

      I agree food was the worst we have ever had. Ambiance not too good either. Got the impression the room had never been used for a function before. A false ceiling wouldn't have come amiss. I certainly didnt like the venue at all.

    Lively atmosphere, met some new and interesting people. Some of the wines are not best quality by any stretch of the imagination, but it's good to taste a range of different ones. No Merlot, Cab Sav or Chardonnay for 2 months now and that's refreshing. Interesting that the best quality by far came out as clear favourite :) Not always the case.
