At ely, we have a common understanding of passion and trust with our winemakers. We offer a variety of wine tasting options to suit all tastes, ranging from wine maker dinners, themed evenings and wine appreciation courses. The ely wine experience covers all aspects of wine tasting, how to taste correctly - as opposed to just drinking, what to look for when wine tasting and how to assess the quality of wine. We also educate about food and wine matching along with wine production. ely's award-winning wine manager, Ian Brosnan, speaks on a selection of wines from the evening's theme. Sometimes we'll serve up a delicious supper dish, sometimes we'll have our famous ely cold chargers to match. We'll also often have guest speakers and wine makers, and each evening promises to be fun, expressive and engaging. See the full list of upcoming wine tastings events below and book an award-winning ely wine experience of your choice.
Don't forget you can also book our 4 week wine appreciation course here.
