If you like wine and learning about wine in particular, you may be under the illusion that you have to travel miles and miles to a quaint little English Vineyard in Kent to get a satisfactory experience. However, you could not be more wrong, as the little known historical venue of Vinopolis is less then a ten minute walk from London Bridge Tube Station, and is a beautiful venue at that.
Each tasting will start with a brief 'How to taste wine' guide so you can really get the most out of the experience. There are three experiences on offer, with over 100 wines available, all with different levels of expertise, so there is something for every connoisseur.
With each package you receive a wine 'debit card', which is pre-loaded with tokens according to your chosen package, this acts as your key to the wine, where you control what wine (and how much!) you taste.
Private tastings start from £60 or group tasting experiences from £21.
Vinopolis is also available for venue hire and is popular with corporate events and weddings, it is worth asking about venue bookings so that you can avoid them as best possible and really wander around and enjoy the venue.
Also a fantastic gift for a loved one, Vinopolis offers 2 for 1 vouchers and special discounts at particular times of the year. It is well worth taking a look at the website before booking to investigate special events.
