We are a group of people that share a deep passion for wine and everything related to it. We don't take ourselves too seriously and enjoy it at a turtle’s pace because that’s how it should be savoured.

We're by no means sommeliers but we have a reasonable amount of experience tasting a wide range of wines from all over the world.

We would be delighted if you’d be willing to join us on our journey as we discover more and more about wine and share our learnings with you along the way.
