How much does a bottle cost? If it looks expensive will you enjoy it more? What does the type tell you about its provenance? Try your hand at wine and font pairing as you identify the key flavours. Ultimately is the label just there to inform you, or can it transform your tasting experience?

“More than an excuse for weeknight drinking, wine was a clever example of the influence of typeface … don’t worry; you don’t need to be a typography nerd” Digital Arts

“It was certainly an eye-opener to realise that so much of what we taste is influenced by our other senses” SEEN London

Wine and Type Tasting with Sarah Hyndman
The wine and type tasting evening has been created by innovative type expert Sarah Hyndman, founder of Type Tasting, and is co-hosted by Grant Hedley the knowledgeable wine tasting expert (tough job) with Laithwaite’s, who has carefully selected each of the wines for the evening.

“Frankly brilliant idea of combining a type workshop with a wine tasting” It’s Nice That

“The wines were delicious, ranging from the light summeriness of Prosecco to the intensity of the reds” SEEN London

“I learnt so much while having fun and enjoying delicious wines” A Glimpse of London
