Do you Judge a Wine by its Label?
Wine & Type Tasting, 8th December, 7:30pm to 9:30pm, £40 (sold out)
A sellout success at the London Design Festival this year
“Frankly brilliant idea of combining a type workshop with a wine tasting” It’s Nice That
Are you looking for a winter warming treat with your friends, or a unique and entertaining event for your team and clients? Join us for an innovative type and wine tasting experience and take a journey of discovery through a selection of superb wines as you explore what the design of the label tells you about what you drink.
“I learnt so much while having fun and enjoying delicious wines” A Glimpse of London
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?
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.
Comments from the last event: “Fun and informative” “Eye-opening” “Interesting and surprising” “Fascinating” “Illuminating” “A different perspective” “Typography + wine tasting = the best of both worlds” “Fantastic experience, would definitely recommend it” “Great, fun and informative”
“It was certainly an eye-opener to realise that so much of what we taste is influenced by our other senses” SEEN London
The event will be held in the “delightfully cool” brick-lined Laithwaite’s store beneath the railway arches; a family owned, independent wine merchant.
“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
