All set for another great day of Spanish Wine Tasting at One Great George Street.
Now in its 23rd year, The City Fine Wine Challenge is the NSPCC’s annual interactive event for industry professionals in the Financial Services sector.
The NSPCC have been delighted to hold the City Fine Wine Challenge at One Great George Street for the past two years. The dedication from staff is exceptional and our guests have been really impressed with the standard of service offered as well as the beautiful characteristics of the venue itself.”

Every year the Beverage List gets a shakedown and some of our staff (above) have the terrible task of tasting the chosen new wines! We look at the suitability of old wines, wines that have been discontinued and wines that don’t sell well for possible replacements. We also look at new trends in the market, emerging wine regions and grape varieties. All of this is done in light of the Spring budget and inevitable Duty increases to alcoholic beverages.
As I was born in the most beautiful city in the world, Cape Town, I am totally biased writing this blog, but thought I would share some of the history of the South African wine trade and the joys of visiting the ‘Wine Farms’.
