Private Wine Tasting

We also offer wine tasting for private parties, Christmas parties, a birthday or anniversary, corporate events or any occasion. We are based near Wells where we host most of our events in our tasting room, but as our reputation grows we find ourselves regularly travelling to other parts of the UK.

The beauty of wine tasting is that it’s fun, informative and affordable. Your wine tasting will be designed to suit your occasion and meet the outcome you desire, we cater for small intimate parties to large groups with no maximum number.

The Wine Shop has been borne out of a passion for wine, ranging from the complexities in the production through to the enjoyment of consumption. Go to about us to learn more about us and how and why we started.

Wine Masterclasses

The Wine shop becomes The Gin Bar

Gin has had a massive resurgence in popularity in recent years, with many small craft distilleries popping up all over the country, even in peoples living rooms! Join us as we talk in depth about this very spirit, its history and the modern styles currently available. South Africa has their own style and blend of botanicals, and here we will show you these individual infusions and the finished product, with tips on how to serve and the different garnishes.

Soft, hard, creamy or blue?

Cheese is a firm (or soft) favourite of many people at the end of the meal, but did you know that we produce a wider variety of cheeses in the UK than France? Whether it’s Goats’ milk, Ewes’ milk, Cows’ milk or even Buffalo, we are lucky enough to be able to offer an in depth educational and tasty session, guaranteed to find something for everyone. Here at our Tasting Room we work in close partnership with our cheese suppliers and can arrange a personal wine & cheese tasting of some of our favourite seasonal offerings.
