Virtual Wine Tasting

July 2, 2021,8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

We would like to invite you to take part in one of the hugely popular virtual wine tastings hosted by Simon Evans, MD and founder of the renowned independent Alresford wine merchants: The Naked Grape.

How will it work?

Simon will select four choice bottles, usually one fizz, a white, a red, and a desert wine, for you to taste and his extensive knowledge of these and other wines will take you on a journey of discovery in to the world of wine. The Naked Grape will deliver the chosen wines to your home prior to the event (If you are far, far away: they will be posted!). On the evening Simon is sure to amuse and inform us during an hour or so of socially distant wine-tasting. This is a 100% COVID safe event, with really excellent wine.

What other people say?

Simon Evans is incredibly knowledgeable and always weaves amusing anecdotes with relevant information to make an interesting and hugely enjoyable evening. Many of the people who attend immediately book for the next one as soon as it’s announced and some even organise virtual hosting parties with friends and family up and down the country. We cannot recommend these events highly enough to anyone who enjoys wine.

Why join us?

This years Mayor, Cllr Vivian Achwal, has organised this event for the benefit of her chosen charities which are: Winchester Youth Counselling, Friends of the Family, and Eight Foundation.

Your attendance and participation really helps with raising money for these great causes. If you are able, please do add in an optional donation on which we can claim Gift Aid, meaning for every £1 you give, we can claim an additional 25p extra.
