Garrick, Johnson and Wine – History Talk and Wine Testing at Worth Brothers Wines

Thursday 9 May at 7pm

Learn the story of David Garrick while enjoying some of the finest wine in Lichfield at this combined history talk and min-wine tasting event at Worth Brothers Wine!

David Garrick became one of the finest actors of the 18th century but originally he had set off on a career in London as a wine merchant. His  brother ran a wine business in Lichfield and David was supposed to run a similar business in London…but things did not go quite to plan…

The Garrick’s wine cellars in Lichfield were on Beacon Street in Lichfield and are now home to Worth Brothers Wine. The cellars are over 250 years old and are very atmospheric. Worth Brothers have transformed the cellar space into a comfortable and unique area to taste, and enjoy, their extensive range of wines from around the world.

This event will include the story of David Garrick, from childhood through to becoming one of the most famous men in England and a wine tasting experience with the opportunity to have four different, and varied, wines with explanatory notes from Richard Worth.

The evening lasts one and a half hours and is an exceptional opportunity to learn about the history of Lichfield, experience some scintillating wines and in a truly exceptional, and unique, historic location.

Tour cost is just £15 per person, to include the mini wine tasting sessions and the history talk on Garrick.
