One of each theme will take place each day

Superb wines from our very own shores are making the headlines on a daily basis, so come and taste sparkling and still wines that are energetic, mouth-watering and best of all, have a lower carbon footprint because they’re local!
The wine scene is pulsating with talented and experienced women, many of whom are winemakers, so we though it was time to celebrate the female take on the grape in all its delicious forms with a range of bottles from all over the world.
One of the biggest wine trends these days is to make wines more consciously as the wine industry – like everyone else – tries to lessen its impact on the planet. Come and taste knockout wines with good initiatives behind them, such as less packaging, organic production and regenerative farming.

The schedule may be subject to change.
