What our customers say...

I just wanted to say a huge “thank you” for arranging Lisanna to come and host an at-home wine tasting for our daughter’s 21st Birthday. It was brilliant and Lisanna pitched it perfectly for Maddy and her friends. It was really interesting hearing them talk about the wines afterwards and they definitely retained a lot of the knowledge imparted with comments made during the course of the weekend.

Best wishes for your continued success.
Sharon Padgett, Wine tasting at a private home

Jonny's wine tasting masterfully juggled the balance between providing a huge amount of information in a straightforward and accessible way and ensuring a relaxed and sociable evening. Wines are always carefully selected, venues are well chosen and tasting notes are provided. Highly recommended. 

Charlotte Marples, Guest

This was a fun evening for me. It was affordable and accomodating. Being young at such an event we felt we were no trouble, so if any kind of tasting is of interest, you will be welcome, no matter the person you might be. 
We had a calming evening meeting several pleasent people, making the experience quite charming! We got to taste six different types of gin while being educated in their origin, maybe finding a new favorite in the process!
