Private Wine Tasting

Planning a celebration such as an anniversary, birthday, engagement or hen party and want something different to do? Wine tasting is a great way to get friends and family to gather for a relaxed, fun, yet informative evening… and a perfect excuse to drink wine!

We provide fun, informal events in a relaxed, social environment so that you can learn a bit more about wine, try a variety of wines (possibly some you’ve never even heard of) and acquire new wine tasting skills. It can be fun to compare inexpensive wines to premium wines and you’ll love using all your senses to try to work out the different aromas, tastes and styles of the wine. It’s certainly an occasion to be remembered!

All of our wine tastings are pitched at a level to ensure everyone learns something new and has a good time whilst doing it. We can even include fun quizzes to give everyone the opportunity to interact and test the brain cells with themes and wine choices suitable for the occasion.

We don’t sell wine directly so our wine tastings are all about the wines not about what we want to sell to you! We provide three packages but if you’d like to discuss a bespoke wine tasting we will be more than happy to talk to you further.

Rowena is very professional when hosting a wine tasting, but she makes it so much fun. I love wine and now I’m a little braver I will try something different, rather than sticking with my normal favourite. I’m looking forward to attending another of her wine tasting sessions soon. Thank you Rowena
