"Huge thanks for a wonderful evening on Friday. Everybody who came was very impressed - with what they learnt, with what they experienced (your sabre was unbelievable), but most of all, by you!" Liz P.
Wine tasting events are a fun and increasingly popular way to foster team-building or entertain clients, creating a relaxed atmosphere and an activity for all the guests to enjoy. The wine tasting can also act as an icebreaker as clients & colleagues get to know each other - plus the wine is guaranteed to keep the evening flowing!
We can come to you or we can arrange a private room for your group to eat in privacy afterwards either in our venue or a local restaurant or hotel. You will feel truly pampered as you experience a fun wine tasting followed by a delicious meal.
“Thanks very much for the evening, feedback has been very positive and was clearly enjoyed by everyone. You were also mentioned individually as an excellent presenter which I hope also makes it worthwhile from your point of view. We will certainly remember you for any future events we may have and hopefully our guests will also think of you should they wish to do something similar. Many thanks - a resounding success. Phil R., Corporate Team, Zurich Insurance.
“Thanks for last night we all had a fantastic time. I know everyone really enjoyed it. The next day when we took everyone to lunch they were all testing their new found skills with the wine !” Toyota
We will sample at least 6 different quality wines and compare them side by side and you can also include Champagne as an option. We always include a rapid introductory session on how to taste wine – explained in a no-nonsense practical way - and we can introduce our aroma phial kits, a box of wine-related aromas that are a uniquely inventive test of your sensory skills in a way that provides great entertainment, fun, and an element of competition.
You can choose from a number of our most popular options including :
- Classic Wine Tasting Experience
- Champagne/Sparkling Wine Tasting (incl local HAMPSHIRE sparkling wines)
- Cheese & Wine Matching
- Fine Wine Encounter
- Gin & Tonic Tastings
- Whisky Tastings
- Craft Beer tastings (incl local HAMPSHIRE beers)
All of the Wine Tastings can also be run as Wine Quizzes - your wine host will present a series of wines to deduce the identity of – this provides a focus for the guests and ample opportunity to collaborate and interact. For each wine the guests will receive helpful and objective coaching from the wine host enabling them to have a good chance at guessing the wine.
Our wine tastings are entertaining and good fun, pitched at a level that ensures all the guests learn something new about wine and, most importantly, have a great time doing so.
The venue can be selected from our list, or the event can be organised at the clients premises/offices. The event can take many formats, from fun and informal with quiz/team element, to a tutored tasting with a wide variety of wines. All equipment, glasses, wine, notes etc are supplied. We have organised & hosted wine-tasting events for Ward Hadaway, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Eversheds, Benchmark Communications, BT, and many others.
Our format for the evening can be tailor made but normally includes the following -
- Hire/cleaning of professional ISO tasting glasses
- Chilling equipment for optimal serving of white wines
- Approx 6 different high-quality wines
- Professional tasting notes /quiz sheets on each wine
- A fun quiz/team format tutored tasting
- Nez du Vin Aroma - sets of wine-related scents (fun!)
They are a great value way of entertaining clients & staff starting from around £18 per head depending on numbers, format & choice of wines.
ABOUT OUR CORPORATE EVENTS: "I would like to thank you so much for your entertaining and educational evening of wine tasting on Tuesday. The event was a great success and below are some comments that prove how much it was enjoyed by our guests:
Many thanks for including me in an excellent evening last night. I thought it was really informative and certainly open my eyes and broadened my knowledge as to the different regions and tastes.
I have realised that my 'nose' and pallet are probably not sufficiently sensitive to be able to readily discern hints of apricot, lychee, blackberry and grapefruit and the like. I think I shall just have to be satisfied to tell the difference between the glasses of red and the white wine!
Thanks for last night - was great fun. Cecile's passion is quite infectious and she has a lovely way about her. Decided I am taking Moni and Max on one of her evenings, I think they'll have a lot of fun....
Many thanks for an enjoyable evening in good company. Cécile was both informative and entertaining; made me realise how much I didn’t know about wine.... and still don’t judging by the quiz results!
Thanks again for an enjoyable and educational night
I can second that! 2300 grape varieties! Got along tasting path ahead – hic 😊
Thanks for your kind invitation to a very enjoyable and enlightening event
I now know more about French wines than I ever thought possible
Thank you very much from me too and I look forward to seeing our winning photo!
And many thanks from me as well - I learnt more about tasting wine in 2 hours than in the previous 40 odd years !
Thank you for a very informative and entertaining evening, we all thoroughly enjoyed the event.
Thank you once again and we look forward to holding another event with you in the future." Claire Bayly | Marketing Co-ordinator / PA | Gleeds Cost Management Ltd
