CURATED WINE TASTING “FLIGHTS”

In the world of wine, the term “flight” is used to describe a group of different wines that are tasted side-by-side for comparison. We have chosen sets of wines to demonstrate differences in style, grape variety, regionality, and various other themes.

Our flights are 4 x 40mls, adding up to a little more than a normal glass of wine, presented with tasting notes for you to take away.
