About December in the Distillery: Festive Wine Tasting + Scrumptious Nibbles!

A Festive Wine Tasting is coming to Leith!

It's the festive season after all and this means celebrating with Family & Friends or simply treating yourself to good wine in warm spaces. Ho, ho, ho!

About this event

Join us at Port of Leith Distillery in Leith, Scotland on Sunday, 17 December 2023 at 6.00pm, for a delicious evening.

On arrival you'll be treated to an inspired aperitif to settle you into the beautiful location and give you time to enjoy the views.

And then the tasting will begin! What'll you get in that, you ask?

- 6 x Fancy Wines - featuring seasonal favourites from big bubbles, to rich whites, to elegant reds and a moreish fortified to finish.

- A Wine Masterclass with a festive spin to help guide you on your Christmas table needs, and
- Delicious Charcuterie/Cheese to nibble on!

Wine Expert, Isobel Salamon, will lead you on your adventure. In it you will taste and learn about each of the the Wine styles, hear what makes them uniquely special, become a wizard on what they pair best with and basically have a grand time!

This tasting is all about inclusivity and having fun. So whether you're a wine novice, something of an expert or simply love getting out and trying new experiences, this one is for you.
