Organising a special occasion or birthday, looking for a sophisticated Hen or Stag night activity? Looking for an alternative and fun way to entertain or spend time with friends?
Wine tasting parties are a fun and increasingly popular way to celebrate, creating a relaxed atmosphere and an activity for all the guests to enjoy. The wine tasting can also act as a perfect icebreaker as friends get to know each other - plus the wine is guaranteed to keep the party flowing!
We've hosted hundreds of private wine tastings all over the UK, and pride ourselves in providing fun, unstuffy events suitable for anyone looking to have a great time in the company of good friends and good wine!
"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.
Private wine tasting events can be hosted at your home, our own venues, or at a location of your choice - we can recommend local venues to suit any party size or budget. We can also organise, if required, venues that include dinner cooked by top local chefs.
Give yourself the VIP treatment with our Private Wine Tasting experience!
Every event begins with a quick introduction to wine tasting to break the ice, help everyone relax and ensure that everyone feels included and able to participate.
We always keep the emphasis on having fun in a relaxed social environment - if you learn a bit more about wine in the process, thats an added bonus! You will definitely acquire new wine-tasting skills and perhaps try something you never thought that you would like at the same time!
You can choose from a number of our most popular options including
- Classic Wine Tasting Experience
- Champagne/Sparkling Wine Tasting (incl local HAMPSHIRE wines)
- Cheese & Wine Matching
- Fine Wine Encounter
- Gin & Tonic Tastings
- Whisky Tastings
- Craft Beer tastings (incl local HAMPSHIRE beers)
At the Champagne tastings you will get to taste 6 multi award-winning Champagnes from small-growers, of which 1 Blanc de Blancs, 1 Blanc de Noirs, 1 Premier Cru, 1 Grand Cru, 1 Rose and 1 Vintage 2004. Your tutor, Cecile Bergart, is a Champagne Expert (as well as a Ruinart Champagne Ambassador in the UK) and will use her very own Champagne sword to saber your bottles! What fantastic and theatrical experience!
You will always taste at least 6 specially selected high quality wines and compare them side by side. 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 entertainment and interest.
All of these 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.
We have also hosted hundreds of fund-raising wine tastings and have loads of ideas to help you raise that much-needed cash for local & national charities.
