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!

Private wine tasting events can be hosted at your home, our own venue, 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 great food to accompany the wines.

If you’d prefer something more intimate with your friends and loved ones, we can provide private bespoke tasting events for any occasion.

We can come to your home or arrange a venue elsewhere. We will bring the wine, glasses, food and anything else you might need. You just sit back and enjoy!

Get in touch with us and tell us more about your event – whether it’s a birthday party, a hen or stag do, a fund-raising event for your charity or just a fun night out – and we can give you all the information you need.

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.

What our customers say...

We asked Katie of the Birmingham Wine School to run a tasting for our Board of Directors at our Christmas dinner. It was fabulous. She introduced us to some lovely and affordable wines whilst also batting away the heckling of the quasi-oenophiles! A super evening that also proved to be very informative. Thank you.

Mark Picken, CEO, Shire Leasing

I’ve used Katie for several events and what she doesn’t know about wine no one will! She shared her knowledge in such an entertaining way it kept guests captivated throughout the evening. She was more than happy to adapt to my requests and timescales.  Would highly recommended her services.

Claire, Marketing Executive

The event was fantastic, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, the wine selections and whole running of the event was perfectly executed, I could relax with the knowledge the event was superbly managed by Birmingham Wine School, great balance of information, knowledge sharing and importantly masses of fun. 

Michelle Davies, Aptiv
