Education, Tastings & Events
SPEED TASTING Friday 3rd June 7.00PM.
The most fun way to learn about wine is back!
Here’s a little about the event: contrary to common belief, this is not a speed-dating event! It is open to anyone who likes wine, socializing, having fun ….. and enjoys a challenge.
Here’s how it works: we teach you the basics of how to taste wine and then it’s over to you – you taste 6 wines over the course of the evening – but you’ll be on the move: a different table, a different wine, different co-tasters. And here’s the fun part…..you taste all the wines blind (i.e. we won’t tell you what each wine is) - it’s up to you to work with your co-tasters to try to guess based on the information provided at the start. There’s a prize for the person who correctly identifies all 6 wines.
Price €30pp - includes prosecco reception, introduction to wine tasting, speed tasting & nibbles.
Spaces limited, so booking essential.
"A TYPICAL CHILEAN DINNER" Thursday 9th June 7.30PM.
Be part of a unique experience created just for 20 people in the heart of City centre. Join us to try some of the most traditional Chilean dishes in a four-course food and drink matching menu, specially prepared by native Chilean and Food & Wine Journalist Francisca Jara including tastes from the land and sea of Chile.
Tickets €35. Spaces extremely limited, so booking essential.
WINE FUNDAMENTALS: SPARKLING WINE MASTERCLASS, Saturday 18th June 3.30PM-5.00PM €40
We are running a number of stand-alone modules or masterclasses as part of the Wine Fundamentals Follow-On Series which finished up in March. This first module takes a close look at Sparkling Wine in all its different forms and its production techniques. The classes are designed to be fun and interactive. It’s not necessary to have completed a previous wine course to attend. Spaces are limited, so booking essential.

May is the month of Ballymaloe Litfest, running from 20th – 22nd May, which is now in its 4th year. It has attracted some of the biggest and best names in the food and wine business to East Cork again this year. We are really looking forward to meeting two of our wine heroes: Jancis Robinson and Hugh Johnson, so expect to see us hanging around The Drinks Theatre again this year! There’s a jam-packed programme of events – for the full programme check it out here http://www.litfest.ie.
We’re also hoping to have Takashi Miyazaki back over the summer for a sushi and wine matching evening. The date has yet to be confirmed, but keep an eye out for it.
We've introduced a lighter menu for summer and our wine list has undergone a bit of a revamp too. We were delighted with how well the Orange Wine was received, so have decided to keep this on the list and by the glass.
We hope to see you soon for some tapas and wine!
