Wine Tasting at Vinopolis, London
A tourist attraction with a difference, Vinopolis is a wine tasting experience located on London's Southbank. Built under the arches of a Victoria railway viaduct from 1866, Vinopolis can be found in the back streets near London Bridge station and a short walk from the Tate Modern
and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
Vinopolis London opened in 1999 on the two and a half acres of land and provides wine tasting tours, masterclasses and tasting events which focus on whiskey and cocktails.
With more than 150 wines from around the world to choose from, visitors can enjoy a self guided tour sampling wine from all the different regions in one place. An instructor presents the basics on how to sample wine and what to look for before the visitors head off on their tour.
There are four tours to choose from the Vinopolis Grapevine, the Vinopolish Vineyard, the Spirit of Vinopolis and the Vinopolis Celebration. Each tour includes five taste tests and a Bombay Sapphire cocktail in the Bombay Sapphire Blue Room and a tasting notebook.
Over the years, Vinopolis London has developed and there is now a Whisky Exchange where you can sample single malt whisky, a microbrewery where you can taste home-brewed beers and the Authentic Caribbean Rum Experience where there is a selection of the finest premium Caribbean rums.
Vinopolis London is the perfect venue for corporate events and group parties. The masterclasses and wine tours are also ideal birthday and wedding or anniversary gifts.
