P&O's online wine tasting with Olly Smith


P&O Cruises and fine wines have always gone hand in hand or, more fittingly, glass in hand! So what better partnership for The Glass House, Azura’s wine bar and restaurant, than Olly Smith, whose passion for the great grape more than matches ours.

A haven of rich warm hues, delightfully comfy chairs and sensuous lighting, there’ll be extensive menus
overflowing with palate teasing tipples and tasting notes compiled by Olly himself. He’s even scouring the globe
for 32 wines to feature in the bar’s unique Enomatic preservation system.

To whet your appetite for wine and for The Glass House, join Olly online throughout September as he tastes his
way through nine wonderful wines.

Here’s a full list of the Wines you’ll need to join in and if possible i’ll post the webisodes up when they are available.
