South Downs Cellars in-House Events

Watch this space for our full calendar of in-house wine tastings for 2017 held in our Hurstpierpoint and Lindfield stores alongside some bespoke evenings a little further afield.


Mad Hatters Gin Party

Saturday 20th May, 7pm

at Lindfield Coffee Works, Alma Road, West Sussex, RH16 2HL
Get your ticket now and join us as we tumble down the rabbit hole with six outstanding local boutique gins. You will be accompanied on this exploration of gin by the producers themselves as they talk you through their own gin story whilst you taste each gin from vintage china teacups, nibble on vintage snacks and consult your playing cards. But it doesn't stop there as each producer has designed a cocktail to make their gin sing and yes, you've guessed it, you'll be tasting those too as our producers get their chemistry hats on and cocktail shakers ready...
10% discount on all purchases on the evening. Tickets are subject to availability and sold on a first come, first served basis.

Asian Feast Nights at Limes (Gluten Free) 
Thursday 25th May, 7pm
Limes Restaurant, 67 High Street, Lindfield, West Sussex, RH16 2HN
Following on from the success of our monthly Asian Vegetarian feast nights, we have had many requests to hold a similar event for those meat eaters amongst us. So here it is; our first non-Vegetarian Asian Feast Night.

The format will be very similar to our regular feast nights - there will be eleven separate Asian tasting dishes influenced by the origins of our Head Chef, Patcharee, and featuring the best of local seasonal produce and game. All dishes will be Gluten Free and each course will be accompanied by wines specially selected by our friends at South Downs Cellars.

Mama Ghanoushe May Supper Club 

Friday 26th May, 7.30pm
31 Keymer Road, Hassocks, West Sussex BN6 8AH

We are excited to invite you to Mama Ghanoushe’s May supper club!  The theme this month is ‘introduction to raw eating’, and includes a range of foods that have been prepared and preserved in such a way that they retain all of the nutrients and enzymes that get lost or decrease in potency when cooked. We are looking forward to dispelling the myth that raw food is just cold, crunchy salads, and would love for you to join us in experiencing the tastes, textures and health benefits eating raw can bring!

£25 per ticket - to book phone Mama Ghanoushe on 07821 604198 or visit
