Win a pair of tickets to Vinopolis’ Grapevine Tour

Vinopolis logoI haven’t been to Vinopolis for some time but I was there the other night and was really surprised by how much they’ve spruced up the joint. There is a restaurant under the arches along with a cool bar and there are quite a few new exhibits. If you’re a newbie to wine (or want to learn more about drinks), this is a good place to start.

Not to mention the Laithwaites shop which is attached to Vinopolis. You can take home a bottle or two if you so feel inspired after visiting. If you’re looking for an introduction to wine “The Grapevine tour for Two” is a good place to start. Itincludes a “how to” session, teaching you how to describe wine easily as well as tasting through 6 different wines and a cocktail to round things out.

I’m giving away a pair of tickets and all you have to do is leave a comment here or on The Winesleuth’s Facebook page, telling me why you want to visit Vinopolis. Contest ends midnight, Saturday 3 March 2012. Good luck!

Thanks to for providing the prize tickets.

    The last time I went to Vinopolis, it was for a product launch party, at which I was the PR guy. A camera crew was there from Silicon, and they interviewed me, but the cameraman had had a bit to drink, swayed forward a bit too far, and dropped the camera on its lens. Camera dead (£30,000), interview dead. I’d like to go there again, to remind me of that very funny experience. Oh, and my wife’s from Burgundy, and I like wine…..

    I’d love to do the vinopolis tour – i’m a keen (and skint!) oenophile – and currently saving up for a holiday to explore some of the vineyards in Burgundy at the end of the month. This would be a great chance to do a bit of ‘homework’ before my trip!

  3. Hi Denise, I would love to win the tickets. I have performed at Vinopolis twice, also been to the Colombian festival there in 2010, treated my band to a wine tasting tour and bought a rare bottle of whisky from the shop. It is a fantastic place which has amazing acoustics.
