HELMSLEY Wines will be holding a summer wine tasting event next week at the Helmsley Arts Centre.

The informal evening will provide the opportunity to sample wines from around the world.

Mal Potter who owns Helmsley Wines with wife Jayne, said: “As the summer approaches and we look forward to the long, balmy evenings ahead, it seemed a great opportunity to introduce some of the best wines available in the upcoming season.

"The evening is very informal, and it’s a great opportunity to socialise, have some fun and learn about wines – and perhaps even find a new favourite.”

Tickets for the event on Friday, May 31, from 7pm to 10pm, are £15 per person, which includes the chance to sample the wines on show.

They are available in store from Helmsley Wines, or online at helmsleywines.co.uk/summer-wine-tasting
