Hello Tastourians! 

The weather is like April tempertures this week... so if you've felt like a bear hibernating this winter, come out and join us! We have a fantasic line up of events, serving up high quality food and drink and the guest list is always impressive!

A few events, like Henley are already filling up fast, and will sell out, so here's your a chance to save the date.  More events will be added...

A few top tips: For most of our events buying your tickets early means you'll save at least £5. Also, if you know you can't make it, RSVP no, and you'll be removed from the automatic event reminder list. 

Hope you can make tomorrow night's miniTASTING, we'll be focusing on:

Côtes du Rhône (coat deuh ROHN) translates to 'Slopes or Hills of the Rhône' Its a #wine easy on the purse and palate! -from twitter: @tastour-

Cheers,

Kelly
