Hotel & Restaurant Wine Tasting

Would you like to promote the wine in your hotel or restaurant by having an organised wine tasting? Customers love to know more about the wines that they are drinking and the kinds of dishes that go with them. Your chef can prepare a range a little taster dishes and each wine can be carefully matched to each dish so that customers can learn about which wine and food combinations work well and why. It can be a great way to promote a new menu or new additions to your menu as well as showcase the range of wines in your cellar.

Regular wine and food evenings are extremely popular and your guests will love nothing more than to enjoy fine dining, good company and excellent wines. It can help to encourage loyal customers to return to your venue again and again – especially if they discover new flavour sensations they haven’t tried before. Our events are perfect for quieter restaurant times, Christmas events, corporate bookings or special occasions.

We would be happy to come to your premises and offer a free consultation of what we could offer you with no obligation.

Previous satisfied customers

Rowena’s wine tasting was brilliant! Her knowledge about the wines, regions and Italy is second to none and her presenting skills made for a very enjoyable evening. A hugely entertaining evening. I would recommend Rowena’s services to anyone.
