What you'll do

I’ll welcome you at Grays & Feather, a mischievous wine parlour located in the heart of Covent Garden. We’ll be seated in an underground Snug area, which used to be the office of Charles Dickens, where he wrote Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities and his newspaper from. One by one, I’ll introduce you to five unique wines from around the world, some will be sparkling and some will be still, and I will give you some background about the wine and where it is from and we will taste it together. I’ll go through how to taste a wine properly and provide key tasting notes for each wine. It will be an interactive event, where I will share interesting stories and anecdotes about the wines, and the group will be encouraged to enjoy each wine while making friends with others in the group. The tasting will last for two hours and some light nibbles will be provided. The restaurant has a dining menu, so if guests would like to order food, they are able to do so. The atmosphere will be casual and informal, but the event will be structured and informative. Guests will have the opportunity to buy any wines they have enjoyed tasting after the event.

We will conduct our tasting in the cosy, velvet-lined underground Snug at Grays & Feather, a beautiful and quirky wine parlour in the heart of Covent Garden. Charles Dickens once lived and worked there and the venue is still home to his original fireplaces (there is even one in the bathroom!).
