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.
The self-guided wine tasting experience includes a 15 minute ?How to Taste? session with one of Vinopolis? expert wine hosts. Then explore the different tasting zones as you choose from over 100 wines, spirits and Champagne to taste. Wine hosts are on hand to share their knowledge, make recommendations and answer any questions you may have plus discover your taste profile using the interactive quiz.
Masterclasses range from a Wine Tasting Workshop to Whisky Masterclass and are all led by expert wine and spirit hosts where they will teach you new skills and get your taste buds tingling.
Vinopolis also hosts a number of events throughout the year including Comedy Night, Ceilidhs, Live Music and more - all are coupled with the wine tasting experience and offer great value for money.
Just 5 minutes walk from London Bridge and a stone?s throw from Borough Market it?s a great way to sample some new wines and while away a few hours on this taste experience! Why not enjoy some tapas on the experience or dine at one of the onsite bars or restaurants. Find out more on their website.
