Events

We love events because we love people. That’s why we have a calendar of tastings and events running throughout the year that cover everything from beer, the entire world of wine, liqueurs and spirits and food and wine matching experiences.

Our events feature experts from around the world who’ll infect you with their enthusiasm and knowledge. You’ll leave with a whole heap of new favourites and no doubt some new friends too.

You might also grab the chance to hold your own private tasting for a group of friends in our lovely shop. These evenings are tailor-made for you and it won’t involve us standing and talking at you. They’re about having fun and being interactive, just like a group of friends having a drink and a chat. Give us a shout for more details or if you have any questions.

Find out more about our upcoming events below or visit the shop to buy tickets.

Please note that none of our events have physical tickets – they work on a “name on the door” system. Event tickets are non-refundable but can be passed on to family and friends. Please let us know though so that we have the right name on the door.

FRom Dry to Dessert - Fernando de Castilla sherry evening

If you thought sherry was still the favoured tipple of lilac-cardiganed little old ladies, think again.

We absolutely love sherry and its incredible diversity – there literally is something for everyone from the razor-dry to the intense and decadent PX.

Javier Domeqc from one of the best producers in Jerez, Fernando de Castilla, will take us through six of their sherries, covering all the bases and throwing in a couple of their rarer examples, all accompanied by delicious platters of nibbles from the team at The Ox Row. 

This is an evening absolutely not to be missed. Come and find out why sherry is not what you think it is. 

When: Wednesday 24th April, 7pm 

Where: The Ox Row Inn, Market Square, Salisbury

What: Six different sherries, food platters and a genuine Spanish accent.

Why: A perception-busting, eye-opening, delicious evening

'sparkling & sushi' - Another roebuck estate evening

A repeat of our sell-out February event, Julien Le Pevedic, from our favourite English Sparkling wine producer, Roebuck Estate, will be with us to taste through the Roebuck range. Though we’re not talking measly taster portions here, we’re talking actual glasses of their 3 wines enjoyed alongside sushi from our partners at Little Fish.

That’s a match made in heaven, right?

As this is in the shop, tickets will be strictly limited so don’t hang around.

When: Tuesday 7th May, 7pm 

Where: The Shop, 5 Winchester Street, Salisbury

What: Three glasses of incredible English sparkling accompanied by a selection of delicious sushi.

Why: Spring is in the air, the last one sold out in less than 24 hours and three glasses of the best English fizz in a bar would cost you more than this ticket price alone. Bargain!

'We love Lyme Bay!'
tasting evening with sarah massey

We love Lyme Bay Winery. We’ve worked with them since day one and, quite honestly, they can do no wrong in our eyes. So it’s about time we celebrated them with a tasting with Sarah Massey, their Head Winemaker.

We stock a lot of varied drinks from Lyme Bay from mead, gin and rum through to sparking and still wines. They’re all brilliant but their Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs are world class and rival many a decent Burgundy. Likewise with their sparkling wines.

Sarah will take us through seven of their wines accompanied by delicious platters of nibbles from the team at The Ox Row. 

This will be a great evening and, as usual, is phenomenal value!

When: Tuesday 14th May, 7pm 

Where: The Ox Row Inn, Market Square, Salisbury

What: 7 wines, food platters and chat from a head winemaker.

Why: Phenomenal value.

'perfectly portuguese' - pedra alta & canapes

This is going to be AMAZING!

João Pires, the lovely winemaker from Quinta da Pedra Alta in Portugal’s beautiful Douro Valley is in Salisbury for one night only. He’s going to host a tasting of his 7 wines and ports in the gorgeous garden at Bishops School alongside some delicious Portuguese inspired canapés from The Dusty Apron.

Quinta da Pedra Alta is one of our favourite producers and the only single quinta to be granted 3 granite markers when the port region was demarcated in the late 18th century. They’re quite honestly brilliant!

This event is phenomenal value at only £32.50 per ticket and don’t worry, there is a wet weather Plan B! But we won’t need that – think positively!

When: Wednesday 12th June, 7 to 9ish 

Where: The Headmaster’s Lawn, Bishop Wordsworth’s, Exeter Street, Salisbury

What: 5 wines, 2 ports, a selection of Portguese inspired canapés and a charming Portuguese winemaker.

Why: A lovely evening in an equally lovely setting
