Hello Tastourians,

Together we have hosted around 45 fantastic events at Davy's Wine Bar in Holborn.  Sadly, I have ended our contract early as the new change in management has resulted in a service that is not up to my expectations.

In short, there are 3 more events: 20th July (Olympic Wines), 7th Aug (pinot Envy) and 24th Aug (Chilled Red Experiment).

The recipe of this event has been almost perfected to offer the perfect balance of quality learning, social and fun.  Proof = several members attended over 20 miniTASTINGs!

If you haven't been before, this is what people are saying: It was my first time and definitely not the last really enjoyed the evening, learned a lot how to spot a wine that is past its peak, people were very friendly too. Kelly is a scream.

You can see the YouTube Video Here:

This event has inspired me to create some wild and wacky wine tasting themes. Why Grapes are like Rock starts, Are you a Fashion Foodie or A Glugging Glutton and most recently a Fine Wine Aging experiment where I shared a wine which I had been aging for 13 years. And my quirky metaphors, fun facts and tips were professionally published by Fuller's Brewery.


I will be sending around a poll, for feedback on the new event setup.

I hope to have a replacement venue by September.

Many thanks for your support over the past 4 years and going forward.
