Saturday Tasting with Champagne and Lunch

Our Saturday Course is a full day wine experience hosted in a beautiful and historic listed building. It includes Champagne and canapes on arrival and a delicious 2-course lunch!

You will taste 12 wines, from all over the world and learn all about wine including how to make amazing food and wine pairings. The day is suitable for anybody, from beginners to budding connoisseurs and is a relaxed, informal event.

The day is hosted in a private room at the Lion Hotel, Shrewsbury. This independent hotel is in a beautifully preserved and renovated Grade 1 listed former coaching house. Lunch is served in The Haywards Room.
