Connolly's Wine School
Tuesdays 17th April, 24th April and 1st May
As you may have heard we will soon be opening a second Connolly’s retail outlet on the Dovehouse Parade in Olton, Solihull. Within this new shop will be The Tasting Room, a space with the entire purpose of wine tasting! The fantastic new facility will enable us to host many more events and with this in mind we will be starting our very own Connolly’s Wine School.
As we still have a few weeks of shop fitting and organising to go before the Olton premises are up and running, we have decided to begin with a mini Wine School course at our Livery Street shop in the meantime. This course will be offered at the specially discounted rate of £30 for three consecutive Tuesday night sessions.*
Tuesday 17th April – Introduction to tasting and evaluating wines, a broad view of viticulture, wine production, understanding wine labels and the key factors that really affect the price and quality of your tipple.
Tuesday 24th April - Old World Wines
Tuesday 1st May – New World Wines
Each of the sessions will be run by one of our very own experts with the aim of provide you with that extra understanding of what you like and why you like it.
Places at this event are strictly limited. To get more information or to reserve your place contact Eleri on 0121 236 9269,email: email@example.com

Yup, we’re going all Teutonic for the month of April with tastings (both in-store and virtual), a smashing and stupidly discounted “anything but Riesling” mixed case of Germanic joy and a whopping 10% discount off all German wines throughout the month.
10 % discount you say……?
Yup, this is the simple bit – 10% discount on all German wines throughout April – no minimum quantity.
Some of you may recall from Christmas Tastings before "the event" the charming John Gant proudly showcasing the wines made by his son, Matt, in the Barossa as one half of
