Here’s a Truly Unique Wine Tasting Event…

For those who love wine, wine tastings offer the ideal opportunity meet new people and discover your next favourite wine. For those who are new to wine, wine tastings give you an insight into something different and exciting. The world of wine is so vast it may sometimes be daunting, but that’s why enthusiasts like me are here to help you make the leap and begin a brand new passion.

So how can we make these wine tasting events even more exciting? For me, it’s always been about seeing wine as the social being that it is. It’s about bringing people together.

Private Wine Tastings - Bath - Ben Franks Wine

Wine tasting event at The Guild last year.

In the UK, there’s been a similar luxury item that’s done exactly the same thing that wine’s been doing for centuries: cakes and baking. Thanks to the BBC’s Great British Bake Off, people all over the country are more excited about cake than ever before. And it’s for similar reasons to why people love wine. Baking and enjoying cakes is all about the social element that comes with it – whether your meeting new friends, celebrating a big event, going along to cake-making classes or selling cakes at fates to raise money for charity. Cake, just like wine, brings people together.

Add a little sweetness to your Valentine’s

That’s why I have teamed up with one of Bath’s most exciting independents: The Bath Cake Company. This lovely team of cake enthusiasts, headed by the extraordinarily talented Celia Adams, are putting together a series of cupcakes for us to enjoy at a brand new Valentine’s Weekend wine tasting event – Cupcakes & Dessert Wine Tasting.

Starting sharpish at 7.30pm on 12 February 2016 at The Bath Cake Company HQ on Lansdown Road, just minutes’ walk from the city centre, the night will give wine and cake enthusiasts alike the opportunity to try 7 stunning dessert wines and Celia’s moreish, tasty cupcakes.

We’ll begin with a multi-award winning dry Olorosso before tasting Monbazillac, Vin Santo, Sauternes, Port and more to give you a whole bredth of pudding wine fun. Each wine will be matched with a cupcake freshly prepared by Celia and her team. What could be a better way to kick-start Valentine’s weekend?

Single tickets cost just £30, or buy a two persons ticket for only £50 and save £10 with our Couple’s Ticket offer.

Make it a weekend to remember and book quick – tickets are going fast! There’s a lot of sweet-teeth in Bath!
