Restaurants & Hotels Wine Tasting

Would you love to promote the wine in your hotel or restaurant by having an organised wine tasting? Customers love to know more about the wines they are drinking and the kinds of dishes that go with them. I have held many wine tastings in restaurants and hotels in Kent and the surrounding areas and it can be a great way to promote a new menu or showcase some of the more expensive wines in your cellar.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Increased footfall and customer retention
  • Appreciation of more expensive wine and upselling to better wine
  • Customers can make more educated choices for food and wine pairing from your men
  • New experience for customers

These events are perfect for any time of the year and can be tailored for corporate bookings, special occasions or even those quieter times.

Below are some examples of satisfied customers that I’ve worked with recently:

I had Rowena come to my pub, The Wheel Inn, to do a wine tasting with some lucky customers. What a great evening! Rowena was fantastic – very energetic – knew the wines down to a tee and more! She got on fantastically with the customers and I will definitely be having her to do more tastings in the future.

— James Kelland, The Wheel Inn, Westwell

Rowena reminds me of the lady who used to do the wine tasting on the BBC… and she is really knowledgeable about the wines. An enjoyable evening with matching cheese and nibbles. Organising an event at my place soon.

— Suzy Wang, The Sea Breeze Hotel, Hythe

We had a fabulous evening at the St George Hotel learning about pairing cheeses and wine. We had a range of wines which matched the cheeses perfectly – some were actually a bit of a surprise! Rowena is very knowledgeable and made the evening thoroughly enjoyable. She is happy to answer questions and we learnt a great deal

— Jane Smith

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 and I would recommend Rowena’s services to anyone

— Roland Stanley, St George Hotel, Rochester

Wonderful night at La Cantina di Tenterden. Thank you so much Rowena. The wine tasting was great – see you next month

— Stefania Mignimi, La Cantina di Tenterdern

Other recent venues include The Stag Café, Ashford and The Little Bull, Brenchley.

I would be very happy to offer a free consultation to discuss how a wine tasting could benefit your restaurant.
