            Outdoor Tastings 

            The Bridge Studios, 454 Western Avenue
            Our outdoor tastings are held at The Bridge Studios, a former welders yard that has been converted into container and warehouse spaces for small independent businesses, like ourselves. 
            The busy yard turns into a bar at night with rustic tables and chairs, outdoor lights and coverings with plenty of space.
            Taste a range of different wines, learn more about grape varieties and wine regions, and more importantly, enjoy some lovely wines with some lovely people.
            All our wines are available to purchase after the event in person or online.
            Tickets are limited to keep things intimate.
            All our events are posted on social media @vinvancaerdydd so keep an eye out to buy tickets or sign up to our newsletter to find out about our events first!
             

            Welsh Wine Tastings

            We'll be hosting a Welsh Wine Tasting sourcing Welsh wines directly from a new vineyard, either virtually or in-person.
            Get your tasting packs or tickets from the Behind the Vine page.

            Saturday Sipping Sessions

            Our Saturday Sipping Sessions were created during lockdown as a way to keep us from going insane and to keep the conversation going about wine. We posted more than 10 videos discussing grape varieties, regions and rating supermarket wines.
            Post-lockdown we continued to post weekly tastings where we talked about a new and interesting wine that we wanted people to try. We no longer post videos every week but all of our videos are still available to watch on our YouTube channel - just click on the link below!
