A WINE IDEA is Going Back to In-Person Wine Tastings

A WINE IDEA adapted quickly to the new way of business due to COVID-19 restrictions in early 2020 and quickly launched Virtual Wine Tastings to the public, private and corporate clients. Since then, A WINE IDEA organised over 130 virtual wine tastings and hosted over 3000 people both in Ireland and overseas. 

This week A WINE IDEA is delighted to be returning to in-person wine tastings as part of Spanish Food & Wine Week. This will be the first of many in-person tastings in collaboration with different venues around Dublin.

Every year we have so much fun celebrating Spanish wines and this year will be no different. We are very excited to announce our line-up for this year which includes a welcome return to in-person tastings for us.
