The third annual Perfect Friday Wine, Autumn Wine Tasting is this year being held on the afternoon of Saturday 8th October in the exclusive and wood panelled Council Chamber at Maidenhead Town Hall. It's been a goal of Perfect Friday Wine to hold this wine tasting event actually in Maidenhead from the beginning, and at last the perfect venue has been found.
Expect to taste, talk and mingle your way around 40+ wines from 8+ countries, all expertly selected by Perfect Friday Wine and poured by London Importers, Award Winning Agencies and wine experts alike.
As always, the purpose of Perfect Friday Wine is to find wines that not only offer good value (i.e. well worth their price) but also wines that you may not find easily elsewhere, with the aim to introduce you to new grape varieties, new wine regions and new wine producing countires as well as a selection of sustainable and Organically produced wines.
This is your chance to taste new vintages of old favourites plus new wines added to the list throughout 2016 as well as brand spanking new wines introduced for the Autumn 2016 season - think Austrian wines, groundbreaking and classic new wines from Southern France and wines from top New World producers. More will be revealed nearer the time, since there's a lot more tasting to do between now and October!!!
Then, once you've tasted your way around the Chamber, you can order wines for delivery after the event to enjoy at home. There's no obligation to buy, but your ticket price is redeemable against any order of 12+ bottles received on the day (excluding booking fee).
Tickets are limited, so tell your friends and book asap to avoid disappointment. We look forward to seeing you and helping you find your next Perfect Friday Wine.

What is the format of the tasting?
Over 40 fabulous wines, all available to order on the day from Perfect Friday Wine, will be available to taste. You will be given a tasting glass and notes on registration, then you're free to taste all, or those wines that take your fancy at your own pace. My team of importers and agencies will talk you through the wines so that you know what you're tasting.

Does it matter if I arrive after 1.30pm?
Not at all. The tasting is at your own pace. Feel free to arrive when you like during the afternoon and stay for as long as you are enjoying yourself. Pouring will end at 5pm.
