The Isolation Zone - Instagram Live

In a bid to keep deliveries flowing and provide entertainment for those self-isolating at home, we are organising a series of online Instagram Tastings led by Elliot Awin, joined live by a selection of winemakers and entertainment personalities each week, with your customers purchasing a 3 bottle case of wine to taste along.

Tastings will be hosted on Instagram Live @elliotawin from 7.30pm

Following the first tasting there has been good lifestyle press engagement online, if you do plan to take part please let us know so that we can list you as a participant.
