The Simplicity Concept Social

We are very excited about our first social event with the amazing Simplicity Concept. A fantastic networking opportunity but in a very relaxed and informal environment with wine and food.

The S Concept brings female founders and business owners together and creates an opportunity to meet likeminded women who can share experiences and learn from one another as well as make new friends!

This tasting promises to be a fantastic evening with a few fun challenges thrown in! We will be comparing wines of the Old World with the New World, identical grape varieties from different climates but with a twist! There will be plenty of time to sit back, meet new friends, catch up and enjoy a great Tuesday evening of wine and food.

All of our wines will be paired to some delicious nibbles from IJ Mellis, East Coast Cured and Pie Dolly.

Tickets for this event cost £45 and include a glass of fizz on arrival, 6 wines and great selection of nibbles. Head over to The Simplicity Concept website to book tickets!

The Grape Debate: Old World Vs New World

The grape debate! Does one producer better wines than the other? The Old World vs New World discussion has been ongoing for a number of years with many differing opinions. This tasting, however, will be looking at the differences in style due to climate and how each wine depicts its sense of place. 

The evening will take the form of a comparative tasting which is always fascinating and never fails to surprise.  We will taste classic grape varieties side by side to see how climate and wine making influence taste and style.  One of the grape varieties will be tasted 'blind' to really put your Old and New World tasting to the the test! 

Tickets for this event cost £35 plus booking fee and include the usual glass of something sparkling on arrival, followed by 6 wines and a delicious selection of cheese from IJ Mellis, Edinburgh.

Italian Stallions and Antipasti

What's not to love from this wonderful country of romance?! We will spend the evening delving into some of Italy's finest wine regions and tasting some delicious antipasti and cheeses.  Italy is a country of enormous vinous diversity, producing every possible style of wine.  It can also be a very confusing place for us as consumers with so many labelling terms and grape varieties.  Come and spend the evening discovering some new regions and grape varieties that will not disappoint and get some tips on buying Italian! 

We will of course begin our evening with a glass of Italy's finest bubbles, followed by 6 wines and a great selection of Italian antipasti and cheeses.
