Enjoy a selection of intensely aromatic, complex and powerful wines from down under - NEW ZEALAND STYLE! A real treat for your senses.
‘The fastest wine-growth country in the world spearheaded by Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc & Central Otago Pinot Noir’ – Cecile
Marlborough is a small region conquering the wine world by storm. The punchy and complex Sauvignon Blanc from here always delivers and has won the hearts of many a wine enthusiast. But the best kept secrets are their own expressions of (especially) Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. In this session we dive into these newcomers on the UK market in order to understand what makes New Zealand such an attractive proposition.
We shall taste and study 6 wines chosen from New Zealand’s best famous wineries and award-winning small growers, for not only do they consciously express the characterful nature of each grape variety as well as the contrasting personalities behind each wine, but they also deliver a consistent thread of exquisite world-class wine quality, year in, year out.
All tastings include; minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, PowerPoint presentation, full tasting notes, use of professional ISO tastings glasses.

PLEASE NOTE: We can confirm that we have complied with the government’s ‘COVID-19 Secure’ guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace. Due to the constantly changing nature of this guidance and advice, our internal operating practices and protocols will be continuously reviewed and immediately updated. The information detailed here may therefore change without notice. The measures our venues are enforcing will make your experience with us as seamless as possible and will allow us to minimise numbers of people in the venue at any time. Therefore, we will be running at reduced capacity. Only 12 people will ever be allowed to join me at a tasting at St James' Tavern in Winchester, whereas our function room at the Mercure Dolphin Hotel in Southampton is significantly bigger and can accommodate 20 people whilst still enforcing social distancing restrictions.
The situation is fluid still and we are hoping to gradually build back up towards normal proceedings and we are appreciative of your continued patience and support.
