Wine Tasting Weekends at the Westmorland Hotel, Orton, Penrith

As well as being a wonderful weekend break in fabulous surroundings, a wine-tasting weekend gives you the opportunity of discovering new wines, and reacquainting yourself with some old favourites. 

The format is tried and tested;  A tutored wine tasting with a buffet supper from 7.00 pm to 9.00 pm on Friday evening, a full English Breakfast on Saturday, and free time to enjoy walking, shopping and sight-seeing.

At 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm A tutored wine tasting, followed by a five course Gourmet Dinner.

( An optional additional wine tasting can be included on Saturday morning from 9-30 am to 11-30 am).

Wine Weekends are available to Wine Club and Wine Appreciation Society members and also provide a very suitable event for social or business groups. The optimum number in the group is 24 participants. However smaller numbers and larger numbers can take part (by arrangement) Minimum number is 18 participants. 

The Westmorland Hotel is a perfect venue for Wine Tastings in every way.  Not least, it is most conveniently situated just off the M6 behind Tebay Services (Northbound)​ 

But very convenient for Ullswater pictured here (near Pooley Bridge) on a nice bright winter's day. (Taken by me with my trusty smart phone.)
