We hope you are looking forward to the Virtual Wine Tasting event on Thursday 26th August at 7:30pm.

Below you will find all the information you need to prepare for the event. If you have any other queries please don't hesitate to get in touch, you can use the Contact Us page or email

Please find the link to the YouTube stream below. The stream will be open from 7:20pm, so feel free to join from then. We will start the evening at 7:30pm.


Throughout the night we will be using a website called SLIDO to interact with you all at home including Polls, Q&A, etc. You can access the SLIDO event page using the button below.



Please place ALL your wines into the fridge when you receive them. This will ensure they stay in the best possible condition ahead of the tasting event. On the morning of the event, remove the red wines from the fridge to bring them up to room temperature by the evening. NB - Avoid anywhere subject to extremes of temperature and in direct sunlight.

For the avoidance of doubt, the red wines are the pouches where the numbers have the green background and that have a red wine glass icon.


We'd suggest watching the YouTube stream via a TV or large screen. You can then use Slido via your phone or other device, to take part in the interactive elements. The YouTube stream is public, so you can find it via a quick search on any device with access to YouTube, or via the link above.

Deliveries will be made on Wednesday and Thursday (28/29th). Depending where you live, it will either be a member of the Smashed Grapes team or our courier partner Parcelforce who make the delivery.
In the box you will find taster pouches of wine. Each labelled 1 to 3. You also have a selection of snacks & a Smashed Grapes booklet. Give the booklet a quick read, it sets out who we are, what we do and gives you a flavour of how we approach the world of wine.

Yes, all the wines we will be tasting are vegan friendly. In fact, the majority of the wines that we do at Smashed Grapes are.

Yes, one of our commitments as a business is to do the right thing for the planet. For the wine tastings, we have recently moved to a wine pouch option. These can be returned to us, and we are working with a specialist laminates recycler to make these fully recyclable. In general our packaging is all cardboard based, made from recycled material and itself 100% recyclable. Please return your pouches to Smashed Grapes, 65 Dudleston Road, CH66 4PG - include your name & email in the envelope, and when we receive your pouches back we will credit your wine token account with £3 to cover the P&P.
