We are delighted to be based at Howbery Park, not least because of the many gorgeous backdrops for our offer pics. Most importantly, HR Wallingford have very generously helped us with rooms and facilities at the Manor House for our various events. Our Winter Tasting (on December 1st) saw more than a hundred visitors (they had a hundred wines to visit!), and the classy, classical surroundings added greatly to the atmosphere and sense of occasion. Not surprisingly, there were many compliments. Thank you HR W.
What a good idea, Cheese & Wine Tastings on Wallingford's Bunk Railway.
Never knowingly over-dressed, we go to plenty of tastings too.
Hosted at Your Home
Like us to come to you? A bespoke affair, al fresco? Easily arranged and not surprisingly these are very popular.
Pub & Restauarant Events
We regularly run tasting events at some of our trade customers. For a set fee, these typically include tasting 8 wines on a particular theme, some suitable solids to soak up the aforementioned and your choice of bottle from the evening's show to take home. Let us know if this may be of interest.
Some of our most enjoyable tastings have been outside in the, suitably shaded, sunshine.
Home Tasting at the Howbery Warehouse
2022 saw a number of small private group tastings held at the warehouse. Just let us know what kind of wines we should "study" and how many in the group - 6 or 8 works well.

Our locale is blessed with lots of them and we are delighted to be regularly called upon to open bottles and try not to wax too lyrical. And we do have to be on our toes: these people know stuff! This was Paul at the Maiden Earley Wine Society - with technology!
