Included: WOW - WOW - WOW

I'm salivating at the number of extremely expensive and rare wines available to taste - at the last event the average price per bottle was around £75.  This means that we didn't taste anything under £30 per bottle.  This is one of the only wine festivals in London where you will be able to enjoy this high of quality wines.  (see their website for a full list) 

PLUS... you will meet people like Mr and Mrs Grant Burges of Grant Burges wines... How cool is that????

PLUS - PLUS - PLUS... I will be there guiding a group around, and giving mini wine tasting sessions.  This is equal to a 4 hour wine tasting and is invaluable to your experience at the show.  This is complimentary, no need to book, just show up at the meeting points listed below.

How many wines do you think you'll manage? My target is 30, as I'm looking forward to chatting with the producers and savouring every sip.


Masterclass:

If you would like to attend a masterclass, there are only a few tickets left, and they must be pre-booked. Masterclass tickets are from £10 (in addition to your ticket price)

Meet:

The doors open at 6, however, I will meet Tastourians at 7:00

(In the lobby: near the registration desk)  This isn't as big as some of their other events, so you should be able to find us, if you arrive late.

So, even if you can't come along to the event, check em out!!!!

WHAT STYLE OF EVENT IS IT:

If you've never been to a wine festival,  there will be lots of tables, each with around different 10 wines to try. In total probably around 600 wines.  You walk around, sampling the different wines and talking to the producers. It's very informal and not snobby at all - it's amazing!  I try to focus on one grape at a time, meaning that I will try a Sauvingon Blanc from each table. Or I try all the whites first, then come back and try the reds.


FREE TICKETS FOR OUR PAID MEMBERS:

I have 10 complimentary tickets for Bon Vivant's members (for more information and to join, visit www.tastour.com )

Please post a comment in the thread, if you would like to be entered to win.  In order to make it fair, we have allocated a certain number to old members who haven't had a free ticket lately.  I also keep 1 for a new member who have just joined our paid membership programme.  I try to distribute tickets according to use of membership, so if you haven't be able to come lately, I will do my best to give you a ticket. 

Please note: I only have 10 free tickets and when these are gone, I will be sending you the link to buy a ticket.  Part of your membership is the arrangement of events like this, so even if you do not win a ticket this time, I hope you are able to join in the fun and support our sponsors (which of course helps us get more free tickets in the future.) If you have received a free ticket for a Decanter event previously, than you will not be eligable for one. 

I'M NOT A PAID MEMBER, AM I STILL ABLE TO COME?:

Yes!!! This event is open for everyone.  Our paid members tend to be the most outgoing in the group, so rest assure you will have at least 10 friendly people to enjoy the day with.  This is one of the reasons we work so hard to obtain free tickets; so that you know the event will be well attended and you'll have a good night, with nice people. 

Q: How do I get a free ticket?

We have one ticket specially reserved for a new member. Membership is £70 per year, which means you can enjoy all the other benefits of membership for £35!!!  For more information please visit http://tastour.com/member-registration/
