Out & About: March 2014 Wine Events


Did you go to any of the wine events I listed last month? I hope you jumped out of your comfort zone (or embraced your inner geek) and booked some tickets for an event near you - it's amazing what you can discover at one of these evenings, and all for as little as about £15 in some cases, but some of them are even FREE!  (see below!)

It really fills me with excitement when I know I have a night of wine-y treats coming up - especially if I book one taking place at the less fun end of the month when I'm waiting for payday (and make sure I pay for it in advance) - then I get a nice boozy surprise, and the alcohol numbs my poverty for a few hours...

So what are you waiting for?! March is full of tipple-related treats! Book one of these...

  1. I always look forward to going out. A good tip would be to look out for those places with interesting concepts. I suspect the enjoyment of a venue is, in large part, a function of the performance at hand.

  2. My husband and I got married here, and we couldn't have found a better venue! It is so beautiful, with dark hardwood floors. Wrought iron chandeliers and some really cool artwork on the big pocket doors at one end of the room.
