The Whalley Wine Shop Summer Tasting 2016

We are hosting this years annual Summer Wine Tasting in the Terrace Suite at The Eagle at Barrow on Sunday 14th August.

This tasting is one of our popular walk-around tastings, one of our biggest events of the year, where we invite about 10 of our top wine, beer and spirits suppliers, to come and present their wares to you. Tickets for these tastings are always in high demand, and they are now available to buy.

This informal tasting allows you the chance to try 80 to 100 wines. You will be given a glass and a room guide on arrival after which you are free to walk around and taste any of the wines, spirits or beers we have on show, and chat with the importers or sometimes the winemakers themselves. Whilst we don’t suggest you try to taste ALL the drinks (what a hangover that would be!)… you have a great opportunity to try a range of different grapes and styles you may never have had the chance to before, and lots of new wines too. This tasting lasts 3 hours and you are free to arrive at your leisure within this given time. We do suggest you allow at least 2 hours to taste everything you wish. You will also enjoy entertainment and light bites provided.

We are now taking bookings for this event. So why not join us to celebrate Summer… and sample some of our favourite wines for the summer months! We guarantee you’ll find a new favourite wine here too! You have the opportunity to order on the day, and take advantage of a whole host of special offers too, it couldn’t be easier to stock up for Summer!

There are two identical tastings, one in the afternoon from 1pm to 4pm, and the other in the evening from 5pm to 8pm. Please mention which sitting you would like at the time of booking. The price is £15.

You can reserve tickets in one of three ways. Just come into the shop, or ring us on 01254 822581, or e-mail Couldn’t be easier!
