Have you considered a wine tasting as a client entertainment event, or a social event for colleagues?

We regularly conduct events at unique venues across the North West, and also at clients’ offices. All the members of our talnted team love to talk about wine in a relaxed and informative way and are happy to work with any and every type of audience.

A typical tasting features six wines from around the world, but we’re happy to include as many as you’d like, and focus on specific regions such as Champagne, Rioja and Bordeaux for example. Sometimes we include a quiz to break the ice – do you know why Mary Queen of Scots bathed in white wine? And sometimes we run a version of "Call My Bluff" - can you guess which one of the presenters is telling the truth about a Mystery Wine?

We have extensive experience of working with companies such as Aviva, Ernst & Young LLP, Lloyds Bank, Laing O’Rourke, BT, Bruntwood and Bentley Motors. We supply all the wines and equipment – we even do the washing up! And because we are an independent wine educator that does not sell wine, there’s no pressure to buy anything at the end.


Prices start from as little as £30 + VAT per person*. For those looking for something more special, we can offer fine wine events hosted by our Director, Simon Woods. Simon’s an award-winning wine writer who has visited most of the world’s wine-producing regions, and judged in wine competitions on four continents.

If you’re interested in talking to us about your event, please get in touch below, or email

*Price based on 30 people sampling six wines costing £12 per bottle. Venue hire is extra.


We also offer online tastings for colleagues who can’t meet up. We have organised these for many companies, both from Manchester and much further afield, working with groups as small as five to as large as 100+. Please select the online option in the enquiry form below and we will get back to you with themes and prices.

What our customers say...

Simon hosted a wine tasting for myself and team of about 15 colleagues for our Christmas do and it was a really great evening. We were a pretty lively bunch and Simon took this all in his stride and played along - it made for a very laid back atmosphere, a good laugh and of course some really outstanding wines, which we now know much more about!

Veronica Brookes-Hocking, Aviva

From start to finish everything ran smoothly. Thank you to Sarah at the Manchester Wine School who is really friendly and helped me organise the event, she replied to my e-mails promptly and the wines (3 full bottles) were delivered in good time. The actual event was hosted by Simon Woods on Zoom and it was brilliant - Simon is very knowledgeable about the wines/wine regions, it was very relaxed and he answered our questions and joined in with the banter we had with each other and afterwards let us carry on in the zoom meeting room to continue our "do". I would highly recommend booking this, it was really great fun.
