WHO ARE WE:
John Hattersley Wines Ltd. is an independent wine merchant established 13 years ago, born from a strong and successful background in the restaurant industry.
In July 2015 we were awarded Regional Wine Merchant of the Year for the North East of England, by the International Wine Challenge. We followed this up in May 2016 by being shortlisted for the same award for the whole North of England category.
We take a lot of time to understand not only the wine itself but the, the vineyard, the maker, specific regions, grape varieties, climate and geographical influences, and other aspects which will inevitably affect our choice.
Our tastings give us the opportunity to share some of that knowledge, and hence help you to make the choice of what makes a wine a ‘good wine’. They can be as educational or recreational as you wish, Below is a selection of what we can offer.
All prices are based on 6 wines being tasted plus a glass of fizz on entry.
The sessions are fun, interactive and we provide everything you need! We are more than happy to tailor a tasting to suit your requirements… so please get in touch.

If your group is less than 15 people, you can still participate but the total price will be £300 - just add "15" to your basket. If your group size is smaller than 15, you will be permitted to take any excess wine away for your own consumption.
After your payment has been made, John Hattersley and his team will contact you directly (using the contact details you provide at checkout) to confirm the date and timing of your session as well as the types of tastings you would like to explore. The John Hattersley and his team can also make suggestions if you require. If a mutually convenient time and date cannot be arranged when John Hattersley and his team contact you, any payments made will be refunded in full - refunds for any other reason are not possible.
It would help us if you provide as much detail regarding your required fitness session in the "Additional information" field at checkout.
Please note that a surcharge may be applied depending on the final tasting session created (eg if you have requested a specific wine from a specific region that is more expensive that those proposed) - you will be informed of any additional charges before they are incurred.
