Note that where you have booked at short notice (1 year or less) or where your date has been moved due to unforeseen circumstances, a tasting event may not be available for you to attend although we will try our best to provide one.

Wanted to start by saying the biggest thank you to you. You were so incredibly kind and supportive throughout the process even with all the last minute changes. Without such a kind and understanding person/ company to work with I’m not sure we would have been able to carry on and finally get married. Please also pass our thanks to Vincent, who was brilliant throughout the day, and couldn’t do more to support us. There were several compliments from our guests on how accommodating and attentive he was.
