Welcome to 52 Grapes…


Red grape



, but intimidated by the



White grape

Want to brush up on your


and maybe learn a trick or two?

Join us

on our adventure as we try

52 grapes

in 2018!

Wondering why this is happening? One of us is trying to learn what all the fuss is about!

It’s easy to get involved, simply sign up, then check out the grape schedule to see which grape we’re doing this week (or catch up if you’re new). Simply read the buying guide for the grape, pick up a bottle and then share your thoughts, and see what others though too! No need to do all 52 if you don’t want to – maybe just the reds, or the whites, or ones you’ve never tried before.


Join us on 28th March at Abbotshill Wine Bar and listen to Emma talk you through some of the grapes we’ve tried so far.
