Fine Wine Tasting & (optional) lunch


There are still a few tickets left, so don't delay and BOOK YOUR TICKET HERE


About the tasting:

You'll be welcomed with a taste of invigorating bubbles, and a delightlightful spread of fleshly sliced meats and fine cheeses (veggie options available).  For around an hour, you'll have two wine experts enchanting you with tales of the tipple.

About the wine:

The wines will be £10-25 There are some rather unusal finds here, so if you like your wines to be made off the beaten track, you'll eyes will light up like kids in a candy shop at the selection!

Note on the change of venue:

I tried to phone most of those pre-paid today; however, instead of leaving a long-winded message, I thought I’d write instead.

In London, it seems that there are an endless number of new restaurants, and places for gourmet experiences. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult for gourmet deli’s to stay in business. We had a wonderful time at our last event and it’s with great regrets (and big shock) that Market Quarter has closed down this week.

One of the things I love most about London and Tastour for that matter, is that whenever one place shuts, it opens the door to explore something new.

I have been working away today to find a replacement and I’m confident that we will have an equally fine time at nearby Jeroboams. They even have a wonderful warm fireplace in their cellar.


About the shop:

Jeromboams is an institution in London.  They started as a Wine Merchant importing fine wine in the 1800's and have been going strong since. The combination of historical oak pannel, fire places and fine wine makes this the dream relaxing afternoon

(I just ordered the truffled salt.  The aroma is amazing and a great quick cheat for pastas!)

After the tasting:

When I recently changed this event, and noted the Restaurant Racine, a member emailed and said 'fine choice, one of my favourites in London.'  Enough said, right? Well this has been voted on of the Best French Bistro's this side of the channel.  The have a set course lunch for £15 - and a good selection ala carte.

I've booked a table which required a £10 per person deposit. If you would like to join us, please choose the 'LUNCH' option when you buy your ticket for the wine tasting.

The best deal is the 2 courses for £15

We usually just split the bill evenly, but if anyone knows that they will only be having something small, please speak up and we'll make sure it is fair.

To reserve a spot for lunch, an additional £10 deposit is requested, £8 will be refunded.

Only those eating my join us for lunch, those not eating will need to sit in the bar area

If you are unsure about lunch, you may be able to decide on the day. However, I can not guarantee that you will be able to sit with the group. It's a very small and charming venue.

I hope you agree that this is wonderful new addition to our 2013 calendar , and I'm really looking forward to sharing the experience with you all!
