Don't take our word for it, look at some of the testimonials below and reviews we've received on our TRIP ADVISOR page!

We are an independent wine educator who do not sell wine, so our tastings are fun and relaxed events with no pressure to buy wine at the end. 

A great value way of entertaining clients or treating staff starting from around £27 +VAT per head depending on numbers, format and choice of wines.

Online Corporate Wine Tasting Events

If you’re planning a corporate client entertainment event, a virtual office party or a social wine tasting event for colleagues, we’d be delighted to work with you. We’ve organised online wine tastings for many companies in and around Manchester, from groups as small as five to events for 100+.

Our experienced team can deliver a fun, interactive virtual tasting lasting 60-90 minutes on a variety of themes such as; 

  • Everybody Loves Rioja - Not for nothing is Rioja one of the most famous wines in the world. We’ll pay a virtual visit to Spain to see where it’s from and we’ll try three wines (full size), including an example of the rapidly-improving whites
  • A Taste of the Sunny South - A quartet – two whites, two reds in half bottles – from southern Europe to bring some welcome warmth even on the coldest and wettest of days 
  • Classic Whites, Sumptuous Reds - Four half bottles to unwind over, offering the classic flavours of France and Italy
  • The Quaffers Quiz - Why are the crew on Russian submarines sometimes served red wine? Why did Mary Queen of Scots bathe in white wine? What was wine sediment used for in ancient times? Introducing the wine quiz where novices have just as much chance as wine enthusiast of getting the right answer. With of course some wine on the side…

We work closely with several wine merchants who can deliver wine, full or half bottles, direct to anywhere in the UK, and we aim to select wines that are just right for your requirements. We’ve extensive experience of working with companies such as Aviva, Ernst & Young LLP, Lloyds Bank, Laing O’Rourke, BT, Bruntwood and Bentley Motors, so if you’d like to talk to us about a tasting to entertain clients, treat your team or just have some fun, do get in touch below.

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.
