Online wine tasting with an outrageous twist!
An evening of wine tasting, and musical entertainment presented by the Wicked Winos’ Beth Brickenden, drag queen Vanity von Glow and human jukebox, Alice Keys, on the piano. Join the fun and indulge your senses from the comfort of your own sofa. Fill up your glass and settle in for an evening of sassy tasting notes, audience interaction, music and laughs! Beth and Vanity will guide newbies in the ways of wine tasting and will give more experienced drinkers a fresh and outrageous new outlook to slurp their Sauvignon to. We promise to take your mind to the gutter and your taste buds to great heights.
No drag event online or in the flesh would be complete without at least a little audience participation and Drag and Wine is no different! Guests are treated to a rapid-fire round of Musical Bingo featuring some of the all-time classic drag queen repertoire.
So there is something for everyone, as long as ‘everyone’ loves drag queens, bingo, Abba – and of course wine! All levels of wine knowledge welcome. Spitting or swallowing… also optional.

"Wicked winos did an online tasting/performance for my 40th birthday. It was ecstatic! We tasted wine, laughed and sang along to Vanity’s songs about my private parts. A revolution for the otherwise of bland online tastings out there. This was so much fun, naughtiness and education! "
"I had a blast, hilarious remarks and fantastic tunes. I'm not the biggest wine drinker myself but i really enjoyed it. looking forward to the next one! Well done to the team! "
" Very freaking funny! The hosts are fabulous and the wines are easy to find anywhere. Had a great time, great songs and soo talented. Highly recommend it! Don't miss it! "
