The DrinkIn may be virtual but the bonhomie will be very real! An evening of snobbery-free wine tasting, food matching and cocktail making with mixed drink superstar JJ Goodman and our good friends at MARLO Wines. You can drink along at home or just watch the chaos unfold – and please bring your own favourite tipples and recipes to add to our experts’ recommendations.

MARLO have hand-picked three lovely wines to showcase at the DrinkIn. To get the full sensory experience, order the wines now to drink along at home. (Marlo will deliver them to your door.)

Order the wines here – Tortoise members get 15% off the list price using the code TORT15. If you’re ordering on your phone, make sure you tap “Show order summary” once you’re in the checkout so you can add the code and get your discount.

Here’s what we’ll be drinking:

Seleccion Especial 2015, Abadia Retuerta. A lovely Spanish red but not a Rioja, to highlight some of the other treats Spain has to offer.

Village Chardonnay 2017, Kumeu River. Chardonnay carries with it a certain reputation but hopefully we can change a few minds.

Williams Chase Rosé 2019 from Provence but owned by a family from Hereford who also make gin and set up Tyrrell’s crisps. Lovely wine and a fun story.

Let’s get together for a DrinkIn with a difference.

Our special guests include:

JJ Goodman, founder and owner of The London Cocktail Club bar group, and Craft Cocktail Co and winner of the 42 Below Cocktail World Cup.

Will Evered, Director of Private Client sales with Richard Dawes Fine Wine and MARLO.
