Christmas Wine Tasting & Dinner

Join us for Wine Poole’s Christmas Wine Tasting, from 6pm – 8.30pm on Friday 23rd November, with a fabulous selection of wines from all over the world, followed by the opportunity to dine in the magnificent surroundings of The Old Shire Hall.

Wine Poole are once again holding their Christmas Wine Tasting at The Old Shire Hall which will give them plenty of space for the fabulous selection of sixty wines that they have been lining up.

There will be wines from all over the world to suit all tastes and pockets including some delicious wines from Argentina, South Africa, Spain, Italy, Chile, France, Australia and New Zealand and Wine Poole will have experts on hand to guide you through their wines.

Of course Christmas is also the time of the year when fizz, dessert wines and port are more widely drunk and Wine Poole have some lovely ones with which to tempt you. They are showing a new Champagne from a Grand Cru village, Reserva Cava, Franciacorta, plus a few old favourites.  Then the ideal white and red wines to see you through the whole festive season.

There will be an extensive array of wine gifts with even more magnums and beautifully packaged wines.

This is an ideal opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and discover some new wines and to have the reassurance of trying before buying!

The Old Shire Hall’s exclusive caterers, Wild View, are offering a three course supper directly after the Wine Tasting –  all you have to do is walk upstairs to the Judges’ Dining Room to eat!

Wine Poole will be matching wines to our menu, which will be offered at very competitive prices.
