6 wines, 4 snacks, 2 hours.

Knowledgeable staff don't tend to be on hand when you're staring blankly at your corner shop's wine selection at some ungodly hour. So you panic. You disregard the grape name (instead giving weight to the font it's scrawled in), grab a bottle that's hovering comfortingly around the £10 mark, and seal the deal with a jumbo tub of sour snakes. Back home, nothing tastes very nice.

Change your life! Cornershops might not have much in the way of stuff that ages, but what they do stock is a healthy array of single varietal grape wines that are pretty damn great to drink minutes after they leave the shop, just as long as you've bought the right snack to match them...

Come along to one of our two tasting sessions and learn how to make educated, inebriated choices with the utmost of confidence.

Your ticket gets you a palate-regulating amuse bouche to start proceedings, 6 wines - 3 white, 3 red - from grapes and styles readily available at your cornershop, wherever you live, and some similarly popular food to lift everything you sip to new heights.

Your hosts:

Theresa Paopao (@tpaopao) is making a cameo appearance in London as a judge for Decanter Magazine's World Wine Awards. She gained her wine knowledge while working at Oleana in Cambridge Massachussetts and her late night snack-pairing skills doing time as Wine Director at Momofuku in New York and Toronto. Add to that her 10-year teaching experience and BOOM, you'll be a better late-night imbiber/snacker for it.

Henrietta Clancy (@HenriettaClancy) lives in Brixton, is hosting Theresa on a sofa during her stay, and has scoured the bountifully-stocked corner shops in the vicinity to find the best matches for Theresa's wines. By day she cooks, styles and writes about food and wine for various magazines. She also runs The Last Days of Pisco pop-up ceviche restaurant.
