For those who would like to better appreciate wine, our wine tasting events work every time. Have fun and learn the important bits to help maximise your enjoyment of wine. Style: informative but relaxed.
How it works
This event is not about boring you with soil types and grape varieties. It is an informative, but fun and engaging, event which lends itself perfectly to team building or evening entertainment. The purpose of the tasting is to have fun and learn the important bits to help maximise your enjoyment of wine, in either a relaxed style or a competitive format.
Lea Marston Wine Tasting is a highly engaging and memorable event, encouraging friendly competition, team building and with the added bonus of participants leaving with a new set of tools which will enhance their enjoyment of wine for years to come.
