A long-running Irish blog with reviews of the best restaurants in Dublin and throughout Ireland. Some wine and cocktails thrown in for good measure!

2017 wine tastings

Wine tastings are a wonderful way to sample and compare many different wines all at once. Professionals and wine enthusiasts can develop their knowledge of the market and offerings, while wine fans can try out new wines and regions. Professional wine events will often feature masterclasses and private tasting sessions, but the doors are usually opened to the public later in the day. For a small entrance fee, wine fans get get to talk to experts, meet winemakers and enjoy some good wines. 

If you know of a wine event taking place in 2017, please get in touch so that I can add it to this listings page.
