Private-tastings

Are you organising a special occasion or do you just want a fun way to spend time with a group of friends? 

We can organise small group events in-person to be held in a Cambridge venue or a location of your choice or even in your home. 

A wine tasting game is a fun way to celebrate, creating a relaxed atmosphere and it is an activity all guests can enjoy. Our popular 'Whose Wine is it Anyway?' tasting game is a proven format for groups large and small.

There are lots of carefully-picked clues and helpful tips from your wine host to allow novices as much chance of winning as seasoned wine drinkers. Our fee for this includes the wine samples to taste that we bring with us, professional wine tasting glasses and equipment.

This option is great for a staff social, birthday party, hen party, team building or anniversary celebration.

We can also offer an online wine tasting format for groups dialling in from their homes. We use Google Earth to fly you over vineyards, play video clips so you can hear from the winemakers and run a 'fastest finger on the button' fun quiz you can answer using your mobile phone!

We charge a fee to organise and host the event and we arrange for one of our partner retailers to offer 3 selected wines at a discount that you can order for delivery to each household.

We send out preservation advice so you can reseal and return to the wines over subsequent days whenever you wish. In this way, you get more use out of the wines (not just on the tasting evening). 

Our online tasting fee is £25 per connected device (minimum £200 covers the first 8 devices). The cost of the wines will depend on the theme you choose.

For in-person private tastings the Cambridge venues we work with include: The Ibis Hotel, The Cambridge Brew House, Stolen, The Old Bicycle Shop, Madingley Hall, Hotel Felix and - for a touch of luxury - selected Cambridge colleges (subject to availability).

This option is great if you are looking for a fun night out or want to arrange a sophisticated activity. We typically organise a private room for your group so that you feel truly pampered as you experience a fun wine tasting that you can follow up with a delicious meal.

Or we can come to you at your home!
