NEW ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING COVID-19:
Further to the government's recent announcement to avoid all unnecessary travel and entertainment, I will be postponing all my remaining wine tasting events in March & April to future dates in the autumn. I will be in touch with all those who have purchased tickets for these events personally by email to offer them the new date.
PLEASE NOTE - I am offering weekly virtual wine tastings working with independent winemerchants so you can still enjoy my wine tastings in the comfort of your own home.
Stay safe everyone & see you all soon - virtually!
Welcome to my website!
I hope you enjoy my regularly updated News section, which will keep you up to date with my wine tastings, travels and regular articles. Rose Uncut gives you 'unedited' features with helpful wine buying tips.
As many of you know, I run regular wine tastings, courses and wine dinners catering for beginners to experienced enthusiasts. In Spring & Summer 2020 we will focus on individual tasting evenings in Edinburgh on Hidden Italian Reds, Fine German Wines, Bordeaux v South Africa, Sicily v Puglia, Wine & War, England v Champagne, NW Spain and more.
In Glasgow we will compare Bordeaux v Chile, Hidden Spanish Gems with Charcuterie and Champagne v Sparkling Wine.
In St Andrews we will compare Chile v Argentina, Hidden Spanish Gems with Charcuterie and Classic Australian wines.
If you cannot decide which evening to give as a gift, you can buy 'open' gift vouchers on my website here. Gift vouchers are valid for one year from date of purchase.

On Thursday 7 May 2020 we will be hosting a French Classics Dinner in Rhubarb restaurant in Prestonfield House Hotel in Edinburgh. Our next Fine Wine Dinner in Fife will be on Thursday 3 December 2020 - please ask Rose for details about special discounts on accommodation in Prestonfield House and in The Peat Inn Suites.
I have been organising and hosting my own Wine Tours for over 12 years. I recently took very popular tours to South Africa, New Zealand, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Austria, Italy, Spain, Portugal, California & Oregon. Read my travel blog about the winemakers we met and wines we enjoyed. I will be planning future wine adventures - please see Upcoming Wine Tours. Our next tours will be to Jerez in Andalusia, Spain 9-13 June 2020 and Germany in 6-13 September 2020 with further tours planned for 2021 to Puglia and South America - please let us know if you are interested in my escorted wine tours.
Remember if you work for a company, I can organise Corporate Wine Events to entertain your clients or colleagues.
