Locals in Ipswich were given a taste of the high life at Thomas Wolsey Place on Lower Brook Street, where Suffolk brewery, Adnams hosted an exclusive wine-tasting event last week. 

The sophisticated soiree saw 50 local wine enthusiasts and homeowners raising their glasses at Thomas Wolsey Place, a McCarthy Stone Retirement Living development, to sample a selection of delicious wines produced by the award-winning distillery in Southwold. 

Recently named East Anglia’s Best Independent Wine Merchant , experts from Adnams also shed light on how the wines are made and the ingredients used in crafting some of the guests’ favourite tipples. 

With Google searches for ‘wine tasting events’ increasing by 120% in the last month, according to Google Trends, there’s growing in demand not only in Ipswich but across the UK

Josh Pope, General Manager of the Woodbridge and Aldeburgh Stores, comments: “It was a pleasure to join homeowners, along with their friends and family, at Thomas Wolsey Place and treat them to what we believe are some of the best wines in the world. Wine tasting events are a fun and interactive way to encourage guests to try new flavours, learn how different varieties are made, and become somewhat of an expert in wine pairing. All the guests showed real enthusiasm and it’s fair to say they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”

David Meachem, Divisional Sales Director at McCarthy Stone, says: “Our wine tasting event is just one example of a series of events taking place at Thomas Wolsey Place and other McCarthy Stone developments across the country. They’re a fantastic way of bringing the community closer together, as well as giving visiting retirees a first-hand experience of the vibrant lifestyle we offer. 

“Establishing strong relationships with groups and businesses within the local communities is a key focus at McCarthy Stone. Therefore, we’re delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Adnams, who did a fantastic job of entertaining guests and creating what was quite clearly a very memorable experience.”
