A Private Wine Tasting makes for the perfect Stag Weekend for the sophisticated Groom-to-be. Choose from a 2 hour wine- tasting as a warm-up for the Stag-Night ahead or a full-day of Wine and Good Food. Our Wine Tasting Parties are a great way to get the lads together to celebrate the stag's last weekend of bachelorhood in style.
Your Private Wine Tasting Stag Party can be as general or specific as you would like. We make sure things don’t get too serious with our pub-style quizzes and bring out your competitive streak with some blind tasting challenges. We finish each event off with a fun game of ‘Options’ - after a series of questions based on the wine in your glass - the last person standing wins a bottle of bubbly!
Old World vs New World
Compare and contrast wines from the likes of Bordeaux and Rioja with the New World wines from the likes of Argentina and Australia. Can a Chilean Merlot taste better than a St Emilion? Can you identify the Sancerre as the same grape variety as the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc? Keeping it fun and lively this wine tasting will have you trying to figure out which wines are from which country and we could just turn your opinions of what you thought you liked and disliked on its head!
5 steps to becoming a 'wine expert'
Step 1: Guess the Grape variety (1 red, 1 white)
Step 2: New World vs Old World (2 wines, same grape just a different part of the world)
Step 3: Vintage (2 wines, can you tell which ones been around the longest?)
Step 4: Quality (can you tell which wine is better quality and hence more expensive?)
Step 5: Now you’re an expert! Identify the grape, country, vintage, price.
Your opportunity to try grape variets side by side and get an understanding of their unique characteristics. Maybe you'll discover a new variety you like or surprise yourself when you re-discover riesling! You'll try 8 different wines and can have great fun trying to identify them with the tasting tips and clues.
All that Bubbles is not (only) Champagne!
Can you tell your Vintage from your Non-Vintage or your Prosecco from your Cava? In this fun and fascinating sparkling wine tasting you will taste 8 different bubblies from around the world and learn how the various styles are made. What is the 'mousse'? Why does bubble size matter?, and what grapes are used in Champagne? These are just some of the questions you will get answers to while happily tasting!
