The Temperate House

A taste experience

Grab your friends and enjoy a night like no other, in this rare opportunity to visit the Temperate House after dark and sample tipples from around the world.

Looking for a great date night? Or the perfect Insta-snap? Impress your mates this autumn by travelling around the world in 80 sips at our special wine and beer tasting.

What will tickle your taste buds? White wine from New Zealand, rosé from Argentina or beer from Japan?

With over 12 wines and six beers to sample - all from temperate regions, and over half of the wines are vegan friendly! - the choice is yours.

Our knowledgeable Kew experts will be on hand to chat about our work in these countries to protect and conserve some of the world’s most endangered species.

From grape, or grain, to glass – you’ll also learn about the growing process behind these tipples, the effect climate has on the taste, and how it's served and enjoyed here in the UK.
