The regular Aberdeen Wine Appreciators Tastings began in 1999.

The essence of the AWA tastings is to give wine tasters the opportunity to try wines which they would not normally try perhaps because of cost, limited availability or preconceptions!

No experience necessary as the tastings are suitable for all levels of wine knowledge.

I source wines from high street, independent and specialist suppliers to ensure the diversity of the wines which we taste.

Tastings are relaxed and informal and whilst I lead the tasting and introduce the wines, the emphasis is on group chat about the wines.
