Great Places for Wine Tasting in York – There are not lots of places to try a wine tasting experience in York city centre, but the ones we have are excellent quality.  You can try a wine tasting experience on its own or go for a wine and food pairing experience.

Wine Tasting Events with Emma, The Wine Lady

Emma, The Wine Lady offers fun and “engaging wine and cheese tasting experiences that will impress and entertain your friends, clients and colleagues.”

Emma is a “certified wine-lover that doesn’t take life too seriously. I started The Wine Lady to de-mystify wine and make wine tasting accessible and fun for all without the snobbery. I have three globally recognised wine qualifications from WSET and Wine Scholar Guild.”

Pairings Wine Bar

28 Castlegate, York, YO1 9RP

Pairings Wine Bar is tucked away on Castlegate behind the Coppergate Shopping area.  It’s a lovely elegant place to eat and drink.  They have several different wine flights as well as different wine and food pairing experiences.  I have tried a wine and food pairing experience and it was fabulous.  We tried several different wines paired with fine cheese.  The sommelier talked us through each course.  Very enjoyable!

Love Cheese – Cheese and Wine Tasting York

16 Gillygate, York YO31 7EQ

Love Cheese have lots of different cheese and wine tasting sessions.  They even have ‘Bubbles and Brie’ which sounds utterly wonderful to me – two of my favourite things paired together! “If you are ever in York feel free to pop in and see us, we’re based on Gillygate, only a stones throw from the historic Minster. You will be more than welcome to sample some of the cheeses or sit with a cheeseboard and a glass of wine in our cafe and garden.”
