Due to the social-distancing restrictions Vin Neuf are unable to hold wine tastings in their cellar – BUT they are now running Virtual Wine Tastings on Instagram Live!
The tastings last around 30 – 40 minutes and they will guide you through a tasting of the three wines. You’ll be able to interact by posting questions and comments in the live feed.
You can order the wines in advance, through their online shop, and they will deliver to you, ahead of the tasting.
Our next Virtual Wine Tasting is on Friday 29th January 2021
