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 to remain socially distant.

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.

Social distancing measures and government guidelines are of course followed to keep everyone safe, which is why tickets are limited.

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 - Zoom

Kicking off on St David's Day 2021, we launched an exciting new campaign to celebrate Welsh vineyards and all the incredible people involved in growing and producing wines from Wales!

On the last Saturday of every month we'll be hosting a Welsh Wine Tasting sourcing Welsh wines directly from a new vineyard.

 

Get your tasting packs from the Behind the Vine page.

 

Private Events

If you're looking for more of a personalised wine tasting, be it at The Bridge Studios, at home or via zoom, we are more than happy to organise a wine tasting evening that will suit you and your group! We can arrange anything from formal introductory tastings to more fun and interactive group tastings with games and activities. Get in touch with Sara at vinvancaerdydd@gmail.com to see what we can do for you!

 

Outdoor Markets - Indie Superstore Outdoor Independent Market - Multiple locations

We often pitch up a stall at the Indie Superstore Outdoor Independent Market  between 10-3pm. We sell a selection of some of our favourite bottles to take away including some Welsh bangers as well as some other little extras to keep you interested!

There are usually 16 independents offering all kinds of awesome stuff so come along to show support. For more info check them out on Facebook or @indiesuperstore on Instagram. We post the dates we attend online! 

 

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!
