Private Wine Tasting Events in Person

Organising a special occasion or birthday?  Looking for a sophisticated Hen or Stag night activity? 

Wine tasting parties are an increasingly popular way to celebrate, creating a relaxed atmosphere and an activity for all guests to enjoy. Wine tasting is a good icebreaker as people get to know each other, plus the wine is guaranteed to keep the evening flowing! 

We've hosted many private wine tastings across Shropshire and the surrounding area and pride ourselves in providing fun, unstuffy events suitable for anyone looking to have a great time! 

Private wine tasting events can be hosted at your home, our own venue, or at a location of your choice. Wine tasting events at your weekend retreat in the beautiful Shropshire countryside is a very popular option. 

We will sample at least 6 different quality wines comparing them side by side. We always include an intro session on how to taste wine – explained in a down-to-earth way, no pretentiousness here!

We will sample at least 6 different quality wines and compare them side by side and you can also include Prosecco or Champagne as an option.

Every event begins with an introduction to wine tasting to break the ice, helping everyone to relax and feel able to participate. We always keep the emphasis on having fun - if you learn a bit more about wine in the process, then that's an added bonus! You will definitely acquire new wine- tasting skills and perhaps try something you never thought that you would like at the same time!

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

  • Blind Wine Bluff – Our most popular format where you have to guess which wine is which?  Not as difficult as it sounds, under expert tuition you will learn lots and most importantly it’s great fun.
  • Classic Wine Tasting – A straightforward wine tasting session, can be tailored to whatever your interests are, or leave it to us to select some lovely wine.
  • Champagne/Sparkling Wine Tasting – If bubbles are your thing, then we can organise a great fizz tasting showcasing some great sparkling wines.
  • Cheese & Wine Pairing – Six lovely wine and cheese pairings.
  • Fine/Rare Wine Tasting – Whatever your interest we can put together something truly special for you.
  • Gin Tasting - 6 premium gins, accompanied by tonic and garnishes.

Our wine tastings are entertaining and good fun, pitched at a level that ensures everyone will learn something new about wine and, most importantly, have a great time doing so.

We usually advise a minimum party size of 10-12 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 as little as £15 per head.

Most tastings take around 2 hours, but we are never in a rush and are always happy to spend time talking about our passion for all things wine. 

We supply all the wine, and because we are independent and don’t sell wine there is absolutely no sales pressure.

We also supply ISO wine-tasting glasses and appropriate wine-tasting notes and handouts.

What our customers say...

Gary's wine tasting was such a lovely way to round off our staycation in Shrewsbury! Our entire group loved the experience and we even went on to purchase some of the wines we tried. The selection of wines for the tasting are very accessible and reasonably priced if you did wish to buy any at the supermarket etc like we did. The quantities of wine are generous and the games fun. If you are simply interested in trying new wines or you genuinely would like to learn about wine Gary is your man!

Dear Gary,

After having experienced your wine tastings as a way to learn more about wine and subsequently as the host of a fabulous wine tasting party for our company, I am writing to thank you for putting on such an excellent team-building event for us. 

You bring a unique blend of knowledge, experience and most importantly good humour to your work and as a result everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The whole experience was very well organised, from the choice of wines to suit our budget and the theme of the event, through to arranging it, having wine delivered and the event itself.

As well as learning a lot and having a good time, you also helped to bring us together and provided some much needed light hearted entertainment after a difficult year. I would highly recommend you to anyone either wanting to learn more about wine from a real specialist, or wanting to treat their team or clients to a fun experience.

Steve Brown, Managing Director, Europrojects
