September Tastings

It's a bit more like September today, but what a weekend! We hope you made the most of it. We're just reaching out with a few dates you might want to pencil into your diaries, as we have a few tastings lined up for the month. Most of our tastings (there is one exception) operate on a walk-in basis, no booking is required, however, management reserves the right to refuse admission.

We'd also like to wish Paul and Peter the very best of luck as they head off on the Camino, they're doing 129km over 5 days which is no easy task. With both of them gone, what could possibly go wrong here?
