Tastings and events

Both online and offline we have tastings and videos to help you become the ultimate wine buff!

At Searsons there's nothing we enjoy more than finding new, exciting wines for our customers. We try to give our tastings variety with a range of subjects covered across the year.

For Harriet, our resident Master of Wine, it gives her

"the opportunity to share over a decade of learning, keeping it fresh through sharing that knowledge with others"
