Additional drinks and nibbles will be available to purchase on the night.

Wines for Spicy Foods - Thursday 21st February - 7pm Start

One of the questions we're most often asked is what wines pair best with spicy foods?  The best answer to that is often to look outside the box, so that's exactly what we'll be doing; guiding you through the best matches for spice as well as looking at the effects different spices can have on wine and vice versa.
