Join us for a great Petersham Cellar wine tasting in the Delicatessen, Covent Garden.

This event offers the opportunity to discover some of Petersham Cellar's longstanding Italian favourites focusing on the classical grape varietals.

Guided by a WSET-certified professional tutor, you will taste six fine wines:  Greco di Tufo & Fiano from Campania, Garganega from Veneto, Sangiovese from Tuscany, Aglianico from Campania, Nero D'Avola from Sicily. We will offer nibbles during the tasting (menu attached for reference).

Petersham Cellar is a specialist Italian wine merchant that sources and supplies fine wines across Italy. With ownership of three estates in Tuscany and Sicily, the range consists of 700 directly sourced wines focusing on sustainable, organic and biodynamic practices within the vineyard and winery. Petersham Cellar supplies all Petersham Nurseries restaurants and the Delicatessen in Covent Garden. 

All wines at our events are available to order, and there will be special discounts on full-case orders placed on the day of the event.

Don't forget that there is also an opportunity to dine in La Goccia or The Petersham through the courtyard after the tasting. 

As spaces are limited, we recommend early bookings. Please note that these tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

    Visited 1 month ago Written by Petersham Nurseries Pasta Masterclass customer
    We had an excellent time from start to finish. The Covent Garden location is great. The class was very professionally run by Louis and we learnt a lot about how to make real pasta on the day. We were also provided with a kit to continue the pasta making journey at home. Tasting the different types of pastas that were being made was great and whilst they say that the portions are not equivalent to a meal, for us, there was no way that we could have more food afterwards !! Would thoroughly recommend the pasta making Masterclass Meeta
