Gigs, Virtual Events & Broadcasting

COVID-19 has hugely impacted the hospitality and racing industries, and The Wine Tipster’s gigs list reflects the necessary changes. There has been a great response to the move to Virtual Events and The Wine Tipster is grateful for your continued support. He looks forward to continuing to bring quality educational tastings and events to your home, and eventually the return to in person events.
