Wine is what we do, and wine tastings are what we do best!

Wine tastings @ ely are fun, informative and educational, and cover everything from tasting and assessing wine to food and wine pairing. You’ll also learn how to spot a fault,  pick up a bargain or navigate a wine list.  The theme for the tastings can be anything you want, from Old World Classics to New World Icons, Organic & Biodynamic, or Lesser Known France. Our award-winning Sommelier, Ian Brosnan, will be on hand to share his knowledge and answer all your questions.

Upcoming Wine Tasting Events

Cool Reds Tasting - Thursday 9th August 2018

Cool Reds Tasting - Thursday 9th August 2018

In keeping with our theme for the summer (and beyond) we are very excited to host our first ever ‘Cool Reds’ tastings. No one factor can influence the enjoyment of a wine more than serving temperature and we have long believed that most reds are served too warm to fully appreciate the complexity and array of flavour therein, so year we launched our first ‘Cool Red’ section in our wine lists. It’s not just the usually suspects either- grapes such as Pinot Noir & Gamay are often served cool when enjoyed abroad, but it works just as well for the right Syrah, Garnacha, Cinsault and more. If you’ve never tried your red wines cool, then come along and have your eyes -and palates- opened.
