Tasting Event


Come and sample wines on sale in the shop, including the Percheron range, with the shop’s wine guru, Graham Sims (New Forest Wines). And in keeping with the Percheron theme, we’ll have some real Percheron horses to greet you at the door!

Meet Martin Strawbridge, head brewer at Downton Brewery, and let him introduce you to his wide range of flavoursome beers.

And finally, let Graham lead you astray with the fabulous taste and variety provided by our local craft gins, including Conker (Bournemouth) and Twisted Nose (Winchester). We’ll also be joined by Richard Baker, director and founder of Dancing Cows Distillery & Brewhouse (Lymington) to lead the tasting of his Myristica & Lymington Gins.
