Winefeast, our monthly celebration of the food and wine we sell, is at 19:30 on the first Thursday of each month. As well as a fabulous meal taken from our shelves and counters, it is an opportunity to try some of our wines and there are discounts and promotions for wine orders placed on the night. We carefully select appropriate bottles – with diverse flavours and different price points – from across our portfolio. The menu is fixed, so it is important that you tell us in advance of any dietary requirements. The next menu is as follows:
