Tour de France Wine Tasting at the Gherkin...No Bicycle Required!

Friday, July 14, 2017 - 18:00

We hope you can join us to celebrate this momentous race at the Gherkin. Just like the real thing - we’ll be at altitude with breath taking views, but on our route the pace is relaxed and water bottles are replaced with wine glasses. As you pass through different ‘regions’ tasting fabulous wines along the way you will enjoy matching canapes whilst gathering wine information on route. There will also be some fantastic prizes for the winner of our Tour de France quiz!
