Our Laugh & Learn tasting evenings are ever more successful, we thank you for your enthusiasm!
We apologize for those of you who have not yet been able to attend; we are doing our best to satisfy the largest number of people by programming an ever-growing number of tastings. Our Laugh & Learn tasting themes: Wines, Whiskies, Rum, Tequila & Mezcal, Gin &Tonic… So, pull out your calendars, first come … first served!
These events will take place in the shop from 7:15pm to 9:30pm at Mig’s World Wines - 43 Chaussée de Charleroi, 1060 Brussels.
Important note: this being Brussels, our clientele reflects the cosmopolitan character of this beautiful city. Thus, we adapt the language of the tasting according to the language that is most understood by the participants on that specific evening. Very often the common language will be English but French (even Dutch) is also a possibility.
