SORRY< THIS EVENT HAS NOW SOLD OUT>
Tickets for perhaps the most important tasting of the year are now here… THE WHALLEY WINE SHOP CHRISTMAS TASTING! This is the big date for your diaries…..Sunday 19th November, and the venue is The Terrace Suite at The Eagle at Barrow, where we held our incredibly successful (and sold out) Summer tasting earlier this year. There are two separate tastings on the day….the afternoon tasting which is from 1pm-4pm, and the evening tasting which is from 5pm -8pm. Please be sure to specify which tasting you would like at the time of booking.
If you’ve been to one of our tastings before, you’ll know the score. But if you haven’t then here’s what happens…Our Christmas Tasting is our biggest tasting of the year. It’s what we call a ‘Walk Around Tasting’. These informal tastings allow you the chance to try over 100 wines and spirits. A dozen of our top suppliers bring their finest wares for you to taste and you can chat with them to get the full run down on what you are tasting. You’ll be given a glass and a room guide on arrival after which you are free to wander around and taste as many of the wines or spirits as you like. Whilst we don’t suggest you try ALL the products on show (!)… you have a great opportunity to try a fantastic range of different grapes and styles you may never have had the chance to before. On top of this we also show nearly all of our main Christmas offers which are often the wines we have been most impressed with all year and definitely not to be missed. Oh and Gins… did we for mention there will be plenty of Gins on show too!
The Christmas Tastings will last for three hours each and you are free to arrive at your leisure within the given times. You will also enjoy some live music and light bites provided at these events. You’ll also be able to order wines at the tasting for collection from the shop soon after the tasting. There will be special offers and discounts that are only available on the day, so it is a great opportunity to put in your Christmas wine order and be sure of getting the wines you know you’ll love over the Christmas holiday.
History tells us that tickets for this tasting sell out very fast and we end up with a long waiting list, so our advice is to book early to avoid disappointment. Our returns policy is that tickets returned cannot be refunded within 7 days of the event, unless another buyer can be found off our waiting list. The ticket price is £15 per ticket and given the number and quality of wines you taste, plus the entertainment, you get fantastic value for money.
To order your tickets, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the shop on 01254 822581. Tickets will be available for collection from tomorrow morning when they go on general sale in the shop.
Cheers, hope to see you there,
Tom and the Team at The WWS.
