Wine Tasting Events at Hic!

Enomatic Wine Tasting Machine Logo

Visiting our store in Ledston provides you with the opportunity to partake in our wine tasting experiences with a selection of wines on offer from our Enomatic Wine Tasting Machine.

If you're unfamiliar with these machines, think of it like a vending machine… for wine!

Our Enomatic Tasting Machine holds 8 bottles and is programmed to serve specific varieties of wine at their optimum temperature: an ambient room temperature for reds and a gentle chill for whites and rosé, allowing all of our wines to express their flavours fully. The Enomatic helps preserve wine even after the bottle has been opened, meaning that we are able to offer more unusual and premium examples from our range giving you the opportunity to try wines that you wouldn’t normally think of buying!

Each month we fill the machine with 8 different wines that either follow a theme, a wine council promotional event, or simply because we feel they have to be tried! You can book a wine tasting experience to enjoy anytime during the days we are open where you will get to try a flight of eight 50ml serves, alongside light nibbles, for a set price per head.
