Why are Humble Grape tastings different?
· The Wine: We are independent, so only choose wines we think are excellent quality to value - NOT what senior corporates tell us to show. To that end, wines that tasters rank highly are kept on the Humble Grape list; those that do not are dropped. New regions and wines are constantly being introduced.
· The Evening: Evenings are relaxing and entertaining. Yes, you will learn a lot. But it is fun, not pretentious and most people stay on after the tasting to chat and have a drink.
· The People: Although we can’t claim specific deals were done or lovebirds introduced at our wine tastings – we have definitely fostered a group of fun regulars from the City, legal fraternity and local corporates who have become friends.
· The Food: This is not your usual bowl of crackers fare. We pride ourselves with serving interesting canapés that compliment and bring out the best in our wine selections.
