Why we love it

Bedales of Borough and Bedales of Spitalfields are a duo of intimate wine bars and boutiques located in the heart of Borough and Spitalfields Market, respectively, that pride themselves on an open-minded approach to wine. A seasonally-inspired independent wine merchant, Bedales is the perfect place to sample some rare and unique wines - most of which are imported directly and are exclusive to Bedales - with one of the resident wine experts.

What's Included?

  • Enjoy two tickets to a public wine tasting at Bedales of Borough or Bedales of Spitalfields
  • Taste a flight of five wines each, representative of various countries, styles and colours (sparkling, organic, natural, conventional, skin contact and white, rose, orange, red, & sweet)
  • Served alongside a mixed board of in-house charcuterie and/or British and French cheeses to share

Exclusive to TRULY

  • This experience is unique to Truly guests

Description

Bedales has been sourcing unique wine producers for over 15 years and is committed to sharing the good things in life with their guests. Rather than focusing on the big brands, many of the wines are imported directly from source and are exclusive to Bedales. Eschewing white linen table cloths and taking an honest approach to wine and wine education, Bedales focuses on unique regions and indigenous grapes. The wine library at Bedales features unique wines from the Lebanon, alongside classics from France.

More than a wine bar, Bedales is also home to an in-house charcuterie programme (thanks to head chef Morgwn Preston-Jones), Wine and Spirit Education Trust school for Levels 1 & 2, and is a unique event space for pop-up dinners, private parties and corporate gatherings.

Enjoy a casual and informal tasting at either Bedales of Borough or Bedales or Spitalfields with one of Bedales' decorated wine experts. This is a creative and wholly unique tasting, due to every bottle on Bedales’ shelves having their own story. You will taste wines representative of various countries, styles and colours (sparkling, organic, natural, conventional, skin contact, white, rose, orange, red, & sweet) and they will be paired with a mixed board of in-house charcuterie and British and French cheeses.

Reviews

  • Great experience with Truly

    The wine tasting at Bedales was really interesting, although we didn't quite realise when we booked that it wasn't really for beginners. The Truly team were great though and super helpful when we needed to amend our booking!

    A Perfect Blend

    My daughter gave me this as a Christmas gift to share and it was a lovely evening.We really enjoyed the different wines and felt we learnt a great deal from Jordan who was delightful.The food was delicious particularly the cheeses.

  • Satisfied customer

    We were made to feel very welcome and our wine expert was very knowledgeable. We will definitely be looking at new wines to try in the future and to be a little more adventurous in our choices.

    Shard stay!

    Excellent for a special treat.

  • Perfect evening!

    Excellent service and a lovely venue! We were met by our wine connoisseur who was lovely and knowledgable (however it was quite hard to hear him over the noise of the busy restaurant). We were told about each of the 5 wines and which cheese / meat to pair them with and then given some time to taste and write about each. It was very enjoyable and a perfect evening for wine lovers. We are a young couple and didn't know much about wines but have left with a little more knowledge!

    Lovely!

    Lovely!
