Les Caves “Bang for Buck Tasting”

Whether you are a bar, gastropub or a Michelin star establishment, a retailer or a wholesaler, you want wines that over-deliver at every price point. In our “Bang for Your Buck Tasting” we will be focusing on wines that are very competitively priced, pack a real flavour punch, are still artisan, organic/biodynamic, and, more often than not, made with minimal or zero intervention. To that end we will be pouring over 120 wines including whites, reds, sparkling (and the obligatory “oranges”) from vignerons all over the world. Several of the wines will be new agencies and will be shown for the first time.

Date: Tuesday 11th October

Time: 10.00 am – 6.00 pm

Venue: 10-11 The Music Room, Carlton House Terrace SW1
