The experience

Hi, I’m Gilbert - a fully qualified wine educator. I write and contribute about wine to the likes of Sky News and have worked in France and Italy. I’ll bring my own brand of eccentricity to this experience and make you feel like you’ve gone to a European wine producer, but without the plane ride.

Our experience will happen at London Cru, UK’s first urban winery. Tucked away down a little alleyway in Fulham, they bring fine wine tradition, innovation, and English eccentricity to the heart of the capital.

We’ll start with a visit around the winery, where you’ll learn the function of each piece of equipment and what it takes to turn simple red and white grapes into a magical and complex drink. We’ll then learn everything about tasting and how different flavours and profiles come about. We’ll discuss blending, its importance, and positive contribution to the eventual outcome.

Finally, you’ll make your own blend to your personal preference and take a bottle of the resulting nectar home.

Includes

I bought this as a birthday gift for my partner and we both thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. Gilbert was so knowledgable and engaging, the day flew by. All in all if you enjoy wine you will certainly enjoy this day and it was extremely good value.

Me and my husband very much enjoyed this experience. It was well organised, and the wine we tasted and blended was brilliant. We have learned a lot about wine. Thank you, Gilbert!
