COVID-19: Important Message
We have drastically reduced the number of people allowed to all our tasting events, in order to fully maintain social distancing measures as indicated by Government’s guidelines. While purchasing your tickets, please let us know how many groups or households are part of your booking, so we can make sure seats are properly distanced. We confirm tasting events will go ahead, unless Government’s advice changes to ban all small events. However, if any attending guests exhibit any signs of symptoms in the run up to the event, we would request that you do not attend and advise us in advance.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Jane & the Hay Wines Team
HAY WINES – ON TASTE
During our tasting events, we do not aim to judge wines, styles and producers, we just want to have a relaxed and informed conversation about what we have in our glasses (read this article from The Guardian).
The presenters have often travelled the world and besides the information, their interesting stories and anecdotes that give “flesh” to behind the wines and producers.
Wine is much more that just a drink, it is a product of different cultures, family’s and traditions. A real wine tasting must always be focused on those concepts.
Therefore, in order to fully understand its values, it is necessary to learn more about its history and territory. At Hay Wines we do not want to arrange wine tastings, we aim to share our passion and to offer a more complete experience!
Tutored whisky tastings are held every 3 months and are a great way to explore the extensive range of whiskies available, and discover styles you enjoy the most.
We arrange wine events, beer or whisky tastings at venues, or our shop, for groups of up to 30 people, a Food & Wine matching service can also be provided.
We also attend Food & Wine festivals and exhibitions around the UK, where you can meet us, and taste a range of interesting products including fine wines, whiskies, a large range of liqueurs, spirits, beers, ciders, perries and… even a chocolate wine!
We hold a free wine tasting in store every Saturday, where we always have a couple of bottles open for you to try, all alongside the myriad of spirits, liqueurs and whiskies always available to taste on a daily basis.
