Saturday 4th December will bring you three superlative wines delivered to your door, alongside three artisan cheese pairings from The Cheeseboard, crackers and fruit preserve. You'll join Sophia live on zoom to learn about the regions, grape varieties, and history of the wines - ask as many questions as you like or just sit back and relax!
The three wines will include three different styles: from sparkles, white, red, rose to sweet and cheese will be chosen to pair perfectly with each wine. The line up is guaranteed to be magnificent - Christmas is all about tasting the very best!

We'll be joined by the jazz vocalist and pianist Rebecca Joanne who will feed our Christmas cheer with a live performance of carols through out the tasting. Such a tingley, goosebump, Christmassy treat! Check out Rebecca singing here
See your friends
Throughout the tasting, you'll have an opportunity to join any other friends or family
who are also on the tasting in a private breakout room. So if you fancy seeing some far away friends for some Christmas cheer then this is your chance. The link will stay open after the tasting for you to carry on your private party.
If you’re flying solo and you fancy chatting with other wine lovers, there’s an opportunity to join the ‘social breakout room’. One guest described this as like ‘meeting other people at the bar’.
Va Va Zoom
Following the arrival of your wines and cheeses, The Drink Talking will host an interactive, upbeat and educational tasting with Sophia via Zoom. Let her entertain you with education about the wine regions, grapes and cheese pairings all served with a side of humour and a belly laugh. The Zoom tastings include a presentation, polls, quizzes and break out rooms which will allow you to be interactive with Sophia and other guests, or, if you prefer, simply sit back and enjoy the presentation.

A note on price
Hey folks, let’s talk about price. Like most other businesses at these times, The Drink Talking has incurred some price increases over this last year. Brexit has meant inflation on both wine and cheeses, as well as delivery costs being affected by Covid. Because of this, this season’s events have unfortunately (and begrudgingly) increased a little in price. Thank you for your continued support; I’ll be using these extra queen heads to feed your wine and cheese habit with all my might
