LONDON: Type Tastings LDF - Wine and type tasting evening

Two exciting and innovative Type Tasting events are planned for the London Design Festival this year with Bankside Design District. 'What’s Your Type?' Workshops are bursting with fun games and demonstrations that teach you the personalities of fonts and how to choose them. 'Do You Judge a Wine by its Label?' Find out what type tells you about a wine and how it can transform your experiences (along with jolly nice Laithwaite’s wine).

Thursday 22nd September, £30
7.30pm – 9.30pm
Laithwaite’s, Arch 219-221, Stoney St, London SE1 9AA

A unique and enlightening wine/type tasting experience. Come on a journey of discovery through a selection of superb wines as you explore what the design of the label is telling you. How much does a bottle cost? If it looks expensive will you enjoy it more? What does the type tell you about its provenance? Try your hand at wine and font pairing as you identify the key flavours. Ultimately is the label just there to inform you, or can it transform your tasting experience?

The wine and type tasting evening will be co-hosted by Type Tasting's Sarah Hyndman and Grant Hedley the wine tasting expert (tough job) with Laithwaite’s.
