Tasting Trains

Jump aboard the Wine Train and let us take you back to the golden days of train travel!

The Wine Train will depart Shackerstone Station on 28th May at 12:30 and 14:00 and the tasting will last for one hour on a steam train. Your ticket is valid for all day travel on the trains so please feel free to arrive earlier or hop on (or off) at a different station. Please select which time slot you would like to attend during the booking process.

Ticket price - £29.50

(More dates in 2023 TBC, please check back for further details...)

We don’t have any products to show right now.

Embark on a journey through the beautiful Leicestershire countryside which will include four different styles of wine with a fun and informal tasting hosted by our drinks expert The Drinksmith, plus a nibble or two!


The tasting will include: 


  • Four glasses of wine (sparkling, white, rose & red)

  • A fun and informal guided tasting 

  • Nibbles to match your wines


This is an experience not to miss for any train and wine lover…one of our favourite train scenes involving wine is in From Russia With Love where the assassin orders red wine with fish. Hopefully we can discover a bit more about food pairings and why this isn’t such a faux pas!
