Enjoyment of wine goes back to very early civilisation and it’s still being enjoyed today. The reason being it’s fun, there’s always something new or different to learn about and it’s there for everybody to enjoy whatever your knowledge. The events organised by Wine Events Scotland aim to attract every wine enthusiast – you’ll not find any reference to sweaty saddles or discussions about a backbone of subtle tannins at these fun tastings.
