Wines of Bristol Tasting Tour
Time & Location
About the Event
Bristol has a strong history of being one of the main shipping ports in Britain for wine imports since the 15th century and still has historic wine merchants in existence to this day.
Today, it is a city that not only imports but also grows and produces wine as well.
Join sommelier Deniz Bayram and other enthusiast for a tour of Bristol's wines and their fascinating history, as he takes you on a ride with your tastebuds through the centuries.
The experience appropriately starts in Bordeaux Quay at the Centre, as we start with a short tour of the cellars of Averys, one of Bristol's longest-standing wine merchants. Hosted by Mimi Avery herself!
The tour then will be followed by a short bus ride up to the lovely Bar Humbug on Whiteladies Road, where we will sit down for a casual but fascinating tasting of 4 Bristol wines, along with some simple nibbles. And we'll delve deep into the history and stories behind each bottle.
Later on, you're welcome to stay and socialise over some of Bar Humbug's terrific, craft cocktails to finish up an afternoon filled with Bristol's fascinating history and culture on your tastebuds.
Transport during the event is included in the price, as a single First Bristol Bus ride ticket for each ticket, which is to get you from College Green up to Clifton Down for the group tasting.
