Wine tasting

Wine tasting is often considered a hidden and exclusive past time, reserved only for wine connoisseurs, but here at the Shippon we think that all of our guests should have the opportunity to better understand the wine choices made by our sommeliers, and uncover the full array of scents and flavours that lie beneath the cork.

Our expert sommelier will guide you through the process to help you gain the skills to become a confident wine taster, to keep you impressing at dinner parties and restaurants for years to come.
