The price includes 3 x full bottles of wine and
a selection of matching nibbles (see THE FOOD tab), detailed electronic tasting notes and access to our exclusive zoom tasting event with sommeliers George Bergier and Nick Fildes. And we will be joined on this event by none other than Chateau Ste Michelle Regional Director Craig Mitchell
It is designed to be shared between at least two people.
We've all heard of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys of California - nothing wrong with that, they are great regions. But there's one region creeping up behind the Cali cousins, the Columbia Valley of Washington State (and a tiny bit of Oregon).
Sitting on the same latitude as Bordeaux and Burgundy, the climate here is perfect for production of top class wines and Regional Director Craig Mitchell of Ch. Ste Michelle will be joining us to tell us all about it.
At the Chop Houses we are blessed with the expertise of Manchester's Top Sommelier Mr George Bergier and his protégé Mr Nick Fildes. As well as the city's best wine list. As recognised by our unprecedented 4 Wine Spectator Awards and The Guardian.
It seems a shame to keep that talent and quality locked away.
Our virtual tastings give you the chance to sample beautiful, award-winning & rare wines, guided by George & Nick and their industry leading palates. The experience is intimate, fun and unique. You get the chance to engage with some incredible produce and some incredible talent.
This is not just some wine & some food.
Each wine is a truly beautiful example. From some of the world's most esteemed producers and regions. Variety is the spice of life, and this range of wines embodies this.
Your order will be delivered a day before the event.
Make sure you refrigerate your whites, leave your reds in a cool room (18/19 degrees is ideal) and take the food out of the fridge at least an hour before the event.

*Please note: while these are the wines we fully intend to be tasting, due the current issues with supply caused by the pandemic and changes to import regulations and processes, they may be subject to change due to availability.
We will provide you with a selection of nibbles and artisan British foods to accompany your wine. This will change seasonally and according to what our amazing producers recommend (as they are often small batch products).
Our cheeses are supplied by the one and only Crafty Cheese Man, a British cheese industry champion and internationally renowned judge and purveyor. What Crafty doesn't know about British Cheese isn't worth knowing!
Cured meats come from Trealy Farm Artisan British Charcuterie. Using free-range small herd livestock and heritage breeds and combining techniques from across the globe to create delicious artisan charcuterie.
We may also provide you with nibbles and mezze style dishes produced right here in our own kitchens using our Best of British produce.
For vegetarians we supply dishes such as homemade black pea hummus, mushroom pates and homemade breads.
Your selection of Vegetarian or Carnivorous is to let us know if we should not include meat products. Please also alert us to any allergies you may have in the comments box on your cart.
PLEASE NOTE: This food is not intended as an entire meal. It is a lovely accompaniment to the real stars of the show, which are the three wines we will be tasting.
