The main event this Christmas
Author: Guest Blogger
There’s only so much time you can spend trawling through department stores trying to buy for that one awkward family member who has everything, before you end up in a panic and start considering novelty golf socks. I always struggle to find something for my dad, and now his fake ‘thanks!’ is Bafta-award-winningly convincing.
This year, make your gift the main event by giving the person who has everything the chance to learn something new – it will still be a ‘novelty’, and will make a welcome change from presents that get relegated to the back of the cupboard never to be seen again.
Berrys’ 2011 calendar of Cellar Dinners, Wine Tastings and Wine Schools offers over 200 events hosted in our magnificent St James’s Street cellars, to suit every taste and budget. From spectacular dinners featuring the world’s finest wines, to wine schools where beginners can pick up the basics.
There are a few brand new events in the 2011 calendar including True or False: Would We Lie to You? a tutored tasting with a twist! Along with a tasting of 12 wines from around the world, there will be a true or false game which will be a fun way to see what you’ve learned.
Also returning to our calendar are some of our favourite events, like our One Day Wine Schools which focus on various fascinating subjects, such as Italian wine, food and wine matching and Champagne, and include an indulgent luncheon in the cellars.
Tickets to our events make memorable gifts, and to top it off we can even present them in a gift box. That will surely put a real smile on their face!
