Nickolls & Perks Tasting & Events

Here at Nickolls & Perks we hold regular tastings. Usually they are held in our 16th century cellars, though we also use other venues including The Stourbridge Town Hall, Hartlebury Castle, Dunsley and Hagley Hall. The cellars at Nickolls and Perks give us a cosy atmospheric space in which to explore wines and spirits which you may not normally delve into. Many a convert has been converted down those stairs!


As well as conducting our own tastings, we have also host events for well-known producers, a few of which are Chateau Musar, Palmer, Leoville and Langoa Barton, Gosset-Brabant and Taylor's. Corporate events can also be arranged giving you the opportunity to entertain clients or enjoy a special occasion, in an informal and relaxed environment. Contact us for details.


We are also proud hosts of Midlands Whisky Festival - one of UK's best whisky tasting experiences.


Please note: All tastings held in the Cellars at Nickolls & Perks will start at 7:00 PM, unless specified otherwise
