Wine Tasting Dinners

Add an extra dimension to your night (or afternoon) out with one of our famous, great value and very popular wine tastings.
Modelled on the relaxed tasting experience you would get at a winery in California, parties of 1 to 50 can enjoy an informal, private, tutored wine tasting in one of our Tasting Rooms. This is followed by 3 course dinner.
The Wine Tasting choices are -
Congressional Tasting - £34 per person including 3 course dinner and coffee. This is a 40 minute tutored tasting featuring 4 good wines.
Senatorial Tasting - £39 per person including  3 course dinner and coffee. This is a 60 minute tutored tasting featuring 5 quality wines.
Presidential Tasting  - £45 per person including canapés w/ tasting, 3 course dinner and coffee. This is a 80minute tutored tasting featuring 6 fine wines.
£5 for additional Cheese and Starboard Course
All tastings can be taken in conjunction with our Napa Valley Tasting Menu subject to the relevant tasting fee.
All Tasting times are approximate due to audience participation.
All wine tasting dinners require pre-booking, enthusiasm for wines is welcome, wine expertise is not assumed nor required. Gift vouchers are available for all the options. The wines change every week of the year at our Tasting Tables.
