Recently refurbished, Vinopolis offers a range of wine tasting experiences: 'Essential self-guided wine tasting experience' (seven drink tokens for £27); 'classic self-guided wine tasting experience' (12 drink tokens £32); 'quintessential self-guided wine tasting experience' (16 drink tokens £38). Visitors receive a card, pre-loaded with drink tokens, that can be spent on wines, spirits and Champagne (drinks cost between one and four tokens). Experts are on hand to give the lowdown on grape varieties and vineyards, as well as the effect of climate on wine production. All tasting experiences begin with a 15-minute 'How to taste wine' session in the theatre, where visitors are shown how to perfect their sniff, swirl and slurp technique.

Loved the place... Wine taste class was brilliant. I fiished my vino before we had to smell it and taste it... the variety of the wines is great and the atmosphere is fabulous.. I had a fantastic evening. I strongly recommend it if you are wine lover. ;-)

The wine tasting is fun, well-organised and the staff are really helpful.  Make sure you try the champagne tasting, and the spirits room is also worth a visit.

The wine tasting session is definitely worth doing, but equally I enjoy going for just a meal and, of course, a good wine selection.

I've been to Vinopolis a number of times, either on team building days with work, or just on the regular wine tasting session with friends. I love the layout, which lets you walk through each wine region, with great imagery and info, and some quirky little touches dotted around each room. I also love the mix of old and new world wines and the wine shop at the end. The bar downstairs is cool too, go for the blue cocktail!
