We are delighted to announce our new WineTubeMap experiences! Like no other wine tastings, they are designed for people who love drinking wine, would like to more but don’t fancy going back to school to do it! In the basement of the Bon Vivant’s Companion – deli/wine shop and next door to one of Edinburgh’s favourite watering holes we take you on a journey of food and wine discovery using the WineTubeMap as the basis for your trip.
You’ll get to try all sorts of wines in a way that helps put the taste and style into context and we’ll provide some interesting food matches for each wine. It’s totally informal, we introduce you to the map and theme and then set you on your way so you get to taste and chat in a completely relaxed environment.
We’ve created a new format for the next few tastings, each one is themed along a line except for the spice tasting which is themed by the food matches. You can attend each one individually or sign up for them all to get the WineTubeMap Knowledge!

Some serious reds from classic regions like the Rhone and Bordeaux – whether you’ve never tried them or love these wines you’ll enjoy the tasting. Because these wines blossom with food we’re including gourmet food matchings to set them off beautifully.
Classic whites from all around the world showing you just how diverse white wine can be from the palest of the pale to the richest of the rich. We’ll be tasting wines from Portugal, South Africa, Australia, France, California and Austria to name but a few and the bites will be just as diverse.
