Vinopolis | Lifestyle

The other week I went for a wine tasting session at Vinopolis and loved it so much I thought I would share with you my experience. 

I will just say that I didn't take as many pictures as I probably should have, I was just enjoying myself so much I kinda forgot and I'm sure it got a little boring for the person I was with taking random snaps. Vinopolis is located kinda near London bridge so it's a pretty great location, but I've never even walked past it before but I've heard of it. 

Vinopolis offer several different wine tasting packages but the one we picked was the Self-Guided Wine Tasting package. Essentially this means you can wander around a select which ever wines you'd like to try. When you arrive you are taken into a separate room with a taster of wine and a member of staff with guide you through how to different ways to identify different things about the wine such as age, location, scents to pick up on, different flavours etc. Our guide was a chap called Robert, who was a treat, really friendly and quite quick witted. 

On this tour you get a card that has tokens on it and you can buy cards that have 7, 12 and 16 tokens. Basically each taster of wine is around 1-2 tokens but I think the spirits and champagne are slightly more, but we focused on the wine. I must admit I loved how chilled and easy the wine stating was, you kinda wander around at your own pace. Each cabinet had 4 different bottles of wine you can chose from, I would definitely advise you and the person you're with get separate wines so you and swap and taste each other's. 

I really enjoyed my experience at Vinopolis, it was fun, relaxed and delicious. 

Have you been to Vinopolis before?


  1. I'm not a fan of many wines, but I've always wanted to try taste testing... looks like it was a fabulous time! x

    1. It's a really great way to try out a variety of wines. I'm a massive wine drinker so I really did find this fun! Thanks for the comment!xx
