The Eagle at Barrow

We are delighted to announce that we will be holding our late Summer wine tasting on Sunday 13th September! We are hosting this tasting at the stylish upstairs Terrace Suite at The Eagle at Barrow. We have handpicked a group of our top suppliers to come along and present their most exciting and interesting wines to you. There will be at least 75 different wines to choose from along with a small range of high quality spirits. This is a fabulous opportunity to try wines from all over the world, discover interesting new grape varieties, talk directly to the experts and maybe discover a new ‘favourite’ wine!

We are hosting two tastings on the same day…the afternoon sitting which is from 1pm to 4pm (perfect to grab an early lunch), and the evening tasting which is from 5pm to 8pm (leads right into dinner!).
When buying tickets please specify whether it is the afternoon or evening tasting you wish to attend.

Tickets are £10 each, and those who have been to one of our tastings will know you get excellent value. To reserve tickets contact the shop on 01254 822581 or email

To add to the ambience of the event, there will be music provided by Spanish classical guitarist Scott Robertson. What a fantastic way to spend a lazy late Summer Sunday at one of The Whalley Wine Shop’s famous tastings!
