Corporate Packages

From small to large businesses, we have bases in over 30 UK locations that specialise in organising professional & entertaining wine events for all budgets.

Our packages can be tailored to meet a wide variety of client requirements and to suit most budgets. Companies have used us for diverse events, such as:

  • Client Entertainment
  • Staff Team Reward/Entertainment
  • Business Seminars/Conferences (usually prior to dinner!)

Wine tasting parties 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!

Give your team and/or clients the VIP treatment with our Private Wine Tasting experiences!

Your place or ours?

We can come to you or we can arrange a private room for your group to eat in privacy afterwards either in a local restaurant or hotel. You will feel truly pampered as you experience a fun wine tasting followed by a delicious meal. Venues with private rooms can also be arranged.

Whose Wine is it Anyway?

Our 'Whose Wine is it Anyway?' game is a great way to learn more about wine. It's a proven format involving a fun quiz with lots of carefully-picked clues and helpful tips from your wine host to allow novices as much chance of winning as seasoned wine drinkers!

Sampling Wines

We will sample at least 6 different superb quality wines and compare them side by side and you can include Champagne. 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.

Themed Evenings

We can also run themed evenings such as France vs New World, Bordeaux vintages, Old vs Young wines, Australia vs America (or anything else you might like to suggest).

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.
