This past weekend the Virgin Wines staff headed to the nations capital for its own national tasting which saw over 1200 customers turn out with glasses at the ready. All our tastings are important, however the atmosphere around the London tasting is exceptional. We have over 200 wines for you to try, ranging from white, red, champagne all the way to sherry and port. We invite a gifts company who showcase their finest decanters, and we also invite some of the country’s best cheese producers to offer up only the most delicious of varieties.
Our wine tastings give you the chance to sample our wines before you purchase. With over 200 wines to try, we encourage sensible drinking with small measures and plenty of nibbles to keep you going. We always invite a host of our winemakers to attend the event, so you can speak directly to the people who create the wines that you enjoy. This year we had the lovely folks from Finca Manzanos, one of our absolute favourite wineries to work with. We also have the lovely David & Lynn Levin, Gavin Crisfield, Paul Shinnie and Sean Allison from Chateau du Seuil among a host of others.
The Champagne table always proves popular with our tasters and it was no different this year, especially as we had the kind folks at Bollinger providing some tasty tipples. Rosé is always a big favourite and with the weather holding this weekend, it wasn’t a surprise to see us get through a fair few bottles.
