Private Tastings

Exclusive Private wine events to suit every budget

Organising a special occasion or birthday, looking for a sophisticated Hen or Stag night activity? 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 all over the UK, 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. We can also organise, if required, venues that include great food to accompany the wines.

Private Wine Events

If you’d prefer something more intimate with your friends and loved ones, we can provide private bespoke tasting events for any occasion.

We can come to your home or arrange a venue elsewhere. We will bring the wine, glasses, food and anything else you might need. You just sit back and enjoy!

Get in touch with us and tell us more about your event – whether it’s a birthday party, a hen or stag do, a fund-raising event for your charity or just a fun night out – and we can give you all the information you need.

Choose from the following or tell us your ideas and we'll create something to suit!

  • Classic wine tasting - Six wines from around the world with some food matching
  • Blind wine tasting/wine tasting quiz - Taste wines without knowing what they are! Make it into a competition with a prize for the winner
  • Champagne and Sparkling - Explore the world's best fizz

All of these Tastings can also be run as Wine Quizzes - your wine host will present a series of wines to deduce the identity of - this provides a focus for the guests and ample opportunity to collaborate and interact. For each wine the guests will receive helpful and objective coaching from the wine host enabling them to have a good chance at guessing the wine. 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...

"Thanks again for organising the wine tasting for us. It was a really great afternoon, and very much enjoyed by all those who attended. In particular the way in which the session was set up, with an initial introduction so that we could better understand what we were tasting and how the wines were produced, to a little background on each of the different wines and why they were paired with the particular foods. A great fun setting, with a lot of thought put into it, everyone was able to relax, learn something new and enjoy some great food and wine!"

Asantha Wijetunge, OMD International

“Julia brings an awesome tasting experience for us during her visit to our office to host a wine tasting event. Julia is very engaging and charming when comes to presenting the wine, her knowledge of wine definitely adds a pleasant flavour in the conversation. On the finish, Julia has taken the effort to prepare well matched foods to enhance the wine. Overall the guests were very impressed. Wine tasting with Julia is highly recommended."

Junfeng Deng, Ernst & Young LLP
