1. Arch 13’s Wednesday Wine Club | 1 & 15 Aug
Where: Arch 13 at Connollys, 220 Livery St, B3 1EU
You may be familiar with Arch 13 as one of the newer additions to the Jewellery Quarter, but did you know they host a Wednesday Wine Club? They’ve got two tastings during August:
“Now that the Aussies are officially bad at Cricket (the Ashes, no idea what they are…), are they still good at wine? Well yes, emphatically so, with a new wave of young winemakers experimenting with new varietals and low intervention techniques there is so much more than just cheap headache inducing heavy reds and over-oaked Chardonnays to enjoy…”
“With both sales of Rose (we actually have seen the sun!!!) and Orange wine rising, we think it’s it’s time for a tasting to explain the difference and just try nice really nice summer drops.”
Both events start at 7pm – book your tickets for either of these events here!
