Private Tastings


Organising a special occasion, birthday, or a sophisticated hen night activity in Tunbridge Wells or surrounding areas? 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 in Tunbridge Wells and Kent 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.  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 are Kent's leading provider of wine tastings - see what some of our customers think on TRIP ADVISOR!

We usually advise a minimum party size of 10-14 for cost reasons. We can offer advice on themes and wines if you wish, or source wines to suit your own preference. Prices vary depending upon location, numbers, and of course the type of wine, but start from £30 per head.

This includes:

  • the wines / gins
  • tasting glasses
  • nibbles (cheese, salami, crackers)
  • wine notes
  • tutor fee
  • travel costs

Venue hire and quiz prize budget are extra. 

You can choose from a number of our most popular options including

  • Classic Wine Tasting (3 whites and 3 red wines or 1 sparkling, 2 white, 1 rose, 2 red)
  • Champagne and Sparkling Wine Tasting
  • Cheese & Wine Pairing
  • Gin Tasting
  • English Wines
  • France v New World
  • Fine Wine Tasting

All of these Tastings can also be run as Wine Quizzes.

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...

A very last minute change of plans for a friends hen do and Victoria and the team couldn’t have been more accommodating. Highly recommend the wine and paired cheese tasting! Everyone from across the age ranges thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thank you!

Kate , July 2021

We had a fabulous Wine Tasting evening run by Kent Wine School, as a celebration! It was a great, fun evening with really interesting wines - I particularly loved a Georgian amber white wine which was delicious - and enjoyed learning about the story of its production. Thank you very much Victoria!

Anna, June 2021

The Gin tasting evening was great fun. Good mix of people, very well presented, beautiful setting, and of the course the Gin!. I had no idea they could all taste so different. The evening has really informative and has most definitely enhanced my pleasure in a great drink
