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. 

Pizza & Wine Evening at the 5 Bells

It’s a meeting of some of Salisbury’s greats. Artisan Wines, Nole Pizza and The 5 Bells. We’ll be pairing six different pizzas with 6 different wines, you get a slice of each pizza (equating to a whole pizza per person) and a tasting measure of each wine (equating to just over half a bottle each). The bar will be open as usual so feel free to grab a pint before or after… or even during!

When: Wednesday 31st July, 7pm 

Where: The 5 Bells, Salt Lane, Salisbury

What: 6 slices of pizza, 6 wines to pair

Why: It’s pizza and wine, why else?

Due to the format of the event, dietary requirements will be hard to manage. If you fancy coming, but are vegetarian you’re more than welcome to have a separate pizza and just enjoy the wine, just let us know beforehand.

Let's Take a punt on it

You’re going to love this one!

We are very lucky in Salisbury to have a stunning river system and a method of travelling along it. Oh, and an awesome indie wine shop.

So we’re teaming up with our friends at Salisbury Punting for an evening of wine tasting aboard their punts as we float down the beautiful river that backs onto the Cathedral Close.

Nat from our very own local Bluestone Vineyards will join us as well to taste his two new sparkling wines and then we’ll taste 4 of our wines too. A couple of hours on a glorious sunny evening, drinking and punting along the Avon, what’s not to love?

See below for wet weather plan and refund policy.

When: Wednesday 14th August, 7pm 

Where: The lawn behind the Rose & Crown Hotel, Harnham Road, Salisbury

What: 2 Bluestone wines, 4 other wines and some fascinating river chat too

Why: If you haven’t been punting in Salisbury, that’s reason enough. But this involves wine too!

All event tickets are non-refundable. However, in this case, our wet weather plan is to reschedule. If you are unable to attend the alternative date we will refund you but cannot refund should the event go ahead.

Rums & Drums

It’s back again – one of the highlights of the Salisbury social calendar!

Rums & Drums returns for the third time but this time slightly differently. We’re taking over the amazing Performing Arts Centre at Godolphin School for a night of rum, more rum and our favourite ful steel band.

The brilliantly entertaining Paul McFadyen, one of the world’s leading rum experts will be there to impart his witty rum chat while we taste the various wares of Planteray Rum (was Plantation). Then we’ll open up the bar, the band will kick off and you can all take to the dance floor.

This year we’re having food trucks including Yard Vibes Jerk who bring Jamaican food to Salisbury. What’s not to love?

When: Friday 25th October  – 7pm to 10.30pm

Where: The Performing Arts Centre, Godolphin School, Milford Hill, Salisbury SP1 2RA

What: Welcome drink, rum, rum chat, more rum, a rum bar (other drinks are available) and a full steel band. Food can be ordered from the food trucks outside whenever you like and however much you like (extra cost)

Why: This is the event that is constantly asked for. It’s a sell out every time and the best fun in the city.
