Private Online Wine Tasting Events

We’d be delighted host an online wine tasting event for you. We’ve organised sessions for milestone birthdays, a family get together, university reunions and just for fun so have the experience and expertise to make it a night to remember for you, your family and friends. 

Our experienced team can deliver a fun, interactive virtual tasting lasting 60-90 minutes on a variety of themes. We work closely with several wine merchants who can deliver wine, full or half bottles, securely to anywhere in the UK, and we aim to select wines that are just right for your requirements. Some ideas are;

  • 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

What our customers say...

We had a virtual wine tasting event with Simon for my wife’s 40th birthday. From start to finish the experience was fantastic. The ordering of the wine through to the setting up of the call was simple and really well done. The tasting itself was awesome. Simon read the room well and gave lots of detail in a relaxed and informal way. We all came away from the experience with some new learns about wine. Cannot recommend enough.

Andy A, Wife's 40th Surprise - Online tasting

What an excellent evening! Simon was very entertaining and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
A great time was had by all.
All of the help and advice I was given in organising everything was amazing too. Everything was done in a really friendly, personal and efficient way and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for a fantastic evening!

Catherine Carling, Birthday Tasting

We booked a hen party in Manchester for 2 nights and wanted to do something a little classy. This was a group of 12 ladies, not all knew each other and the wine tasting was a great way to kick start the celebrations and good value for money. It helped us all bond a better.
From booking, to the experience and knowledge I cant fault any of it. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and it was good fun. Thanks again!
