A great evening out for connoisseurs or complete wine novices. You’ll be welcomed with a glass of delicious wine. Hold on to your glass, as you will need it again and again. You are going to walk around the room sampling up to 40 delicious wines, with experts on hand to answer any questions. There is no formal tasting lesson, as you will stroll around at your own pace and are free to linger on the wines you like. You have the opportunity to taste a wide variety of wines from all over the world, from solid everyday table wine to the very finest vintages and from full-bodied reds, through piquant whites, to sweet dessert wines. Laithwaite’s knowledgeable and passionate team of wine producers and experts will be there to keep you topped up and provide guidance where needed.

Excellent evening. So many wines to taste! Tip. If you are going to order wine do it before the end of the night when you have had too many tastes!

Enjoyable Gift
24 February 2019
Was a really nice day & lots of wines to test, staff were very helpful. My only criticsms would be is there were not enough events in the time scale of my voucher for my location. Also the venue room was small for the amount of people there, it was overcrowded.

A relaxed, informal wine tasting above the Laithwaites store with some contrasting cheeses to nibble on. 8 different wines and cheeses tasted and the background for each was explained by the two friendly Laithwaites staff to the 18 guests. Wine samples were quite generous (compared to other tastings I've been to). Consequently, the evening got more and more 'relaxed'. No sales pressure at all from Laithwaites to buy the wines tasted but they were discounted between 10 and 25% on the night. This was our first Laithwaites wine tasting but won't be our last.

Disappointing
28 February 2016
I bought this as a gift for myself and my husband. It did not live up to the expectations that the evening implies.. This is an evening where you pay Laithwaites to sample their wines and buy them at discounted prices that are available on their website anyway. For your money you also get a few morsels of cheese (ran out), and as many Carr's water biscuits as you want. It was difficult to ask questions as there were so many people queuing up to get samples and the staff and the occasional producers there did not really have the time to engage. It is a win/win for Laithwaites. Knowledge gained - nil. Nice wines though, but we would definitely not go to another similar event.

Although I am a wine lover, I had never thought of going to a wine tasting event. It was a real eye opener and an experience that I full recommend to all wine lovers

wine tasting par excellence
14 December 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our first wine-tasting event in The Bath Guildhall. It gave us the opportunity to taste unfamiliar wines, such as the Chilean & Hungarian reds & whites. We felt the atmosphere was warm, intimate & relaxing. We particularly enjoyed the resident wine-tasting expert, who provided invaluable insights into Spanish whites. On this experience we will definitely return.

Relaxed fun afternoon
14 December 2014
Experienced new wines from Hungary-really nice- and India- not recommended. Not stuffy. Friendly staff and attendees. Tried about 12 wines at different tables that you moved around. Some olives and cheese nibbles. Joined a small group tour with a wine expert. Would go again. Lovely venue The Guildhall in Bath
