Who said wine can’t be enjoyed from the comfort of your very own home? As times change and we aren’t heading to our favourite bars, pubs and restaurants as often, we’re instead exploring new recipes, pouring ourselves a glass and logging on virtually to catch up with friends and keep ourselves entertained.
For the wine lovers, the new to wine and all of the in between, our Home Tasting Experience is here, with everything you need to host your own wine tasting from home. Whether you choose to order the kit as an indulgence for yourself or you decide to gift it to a loved one, it’s the perfect way to learn more about wine.
So, what’s included?
A wine tasting wouldn’t be a wine tasting without the wine. We’ve selected six delicious wines from our range for you to discover, three reds and three whites.
The reds include our classic, velvety-smooth red Cabalié from France, a deeply-fruited blockbuster from Portugal and a luscious and plummy Malbec-Bonara all the way from Argentina. Whites boast zingy Grüner Veltliner, Austria’s mouth-watering speciality, alongside a ripe, juicy Pinot Gris and tropical, satisfying Cabalié Blanc. If you much prefer a certain style over the other, there is an all-whites or an all-reds case available too, each of which include the full home tasting experience essentials.
So that’s the wine sorted, but those new to the wine world might be thinking ‘how will I open the bottles and what will I drink them from?’ Our Home Tasting Experience includes a Cabalié branded waiters friend corkscrew and six Laithwaite’s tasting glasses. Alongside the import bits (aka the wine), you’ll also be emailed wine-tasting tutorial videos from our expert wine educator, Grant Hedley. Our fun and informative taste-along videos go through the following:
- All about the various grape varieties, regions and produces
- Tasting notes for each wine
- Perfect food and wine pairings
You’ll be able to access these whenever best suits you, so if you don’t want to try all six wines in one evening then you can revisit the videos as and when you please. Alongside being emailed the videos, you’ll also get a scorecard to rate each of the wines and tasting notes to download.
