FUN & SOCIAL WINE miniTASTING: (near St Pauls)

Like Wine? Like meeting fun Londoners? The miniTASTING's have been SOLD OUT for the past 3 months...

This month's tasting theme is:

Kelly's choice :)

Event details:

Each month is a new learning theme... So, if you're confusing your Pinot Grigio with your Pinot Gris? Get a quick fix and learn a thing or two about wine with Tastour.

As usual... At this tasting you'll learn the difference between three classic wines, and a few tips on how to tell them apart, plus you'll learn a few interesting facts to share at your next dinner party.

Please note: We do not include the name of the wines as it's more about opening your mind and encouraging conversation with the people that come.

The new miniTASTINGS format is a huge success.  More quality wine... more food and wine pairing... more laughter and more great people to meet.

Around 50 wine lovers gather at this event – it’s more informal than a guided Tastour tasting and it's just as much fun.

If you're coming alone for the first time, don't worry - I'll be there with a big welcoming smile and make sure are introduced to a fun group of people.


If you would like to join the group in a post-tasting supper, please let your host know on the evening.  The cost is £10 cash.

Cost of the wine tasting:

only £12 if pre-paid on-line 24 hours in advance

£15 cash on the door

FREE for Bon Vivant members, why not join today? (Please login to register online)

miniTASTING Experience...

Written by
Sarah, Tastourian


Last Tuesday, I spent the evening meeting and talking to grapes…am I crazy? Was I trolleyed?!

Well, definitely not nuts, nor were the 50 others who were there.

Although it was a social drinks night, there was also a mini-wine tasting – rather aptly named a Tastour Tease! So not just a great night with some fun people, but I learned something as well! At the start of the evening, in small groups, you were guided through 3 different wines. We learnt a few tricks of trade about aromas and tips on how to find a wine that I liked. The guide said that we’ll be tackling a different subject every month. But it’s whet my appetite – they’re running a Champagne tasting on 24th April and I’m going to sign up tonight. The tasting was only hour, so there was plenty of time to get mingling, and test out my new-found smelling skills! All in all, a grape night!!

    Was really looking forward to this evening and although a good idea, the glass sizes were pretty tiny and the actual winetasting part was a bit of an anti-climax, short and somewhat perfunctory. I wouldn't say it was great value for money. Would also maybe be good to get everyone to stand after the tasting is done to encourage proper mingling as even with the movement of people between tables, you don't really get to mingle that well.

    Hi there,
    I'm interested in attending this event tomorrow. Is this place really close to the tube and easy to find? I'm visiting here and don't know London well yet. Just wondering if any of you are going to meet at nearest tube and head over to The Red Herring together?

    September 16, 2014

    • Kelly

      Hi Angie, yes, it's very easy to find (easiest when you have a smart phone, but do print a map). You need to make sure you exit the Greshem Street exit. From there, it's straight ahead, take your. Ext right. The pub is a few blocks on the right. Hope that helps!!

    Hello Tastourians,

    On Wednesday we'll be meeting for our next miniTASTING and it would help me plan if you would pay for your ticket in advance. The cost is £12, or £15 on the door.
