Have you ever considered how your senses and surroundings impact your glass of wine?
See, smell, taste and touch your way through a thought provoking sensory journey with Chris Scott, Church Road Chief Winemaker. Arriving at the home of Church Road, you’ll be welcomed with a glass of bubbles. While you sip, you can wander around our sensory stations at your own leisure and get a taste for what is to come. Once seated for the main affair, your senses will be tested with a series of tastings. We will explore how our own perception and outside influences impact what we taste in a wine.
Although we’d love to share more, an element of surprise is all part of the experience. It’s fair to say we’ll keep you guessing till the very end! On conclusion of the sensory journey, join Chris and the team for a glass of wine and light bite.
