Wine Tastings

Wine tastings at your place? Have you ever thought of a wine tasting event at your home or office?

Learn with friends or colleagues how to taste wine, more about a  wine region or just to try wines that you have not had before.

The general format of the tasting is that I will come to your home or office, if you would prefer another venue, such as a village hall, please let me know and we can discuss it.

I will bring the wine (very important), tasting glasses, spittoons and tasting notes and over about 2 to 2 1/2 hours we will try between 6 and 8 wines. I will talk about the wines being tasted, the flavours, what to look for in the wine being tasted and other wines, the wines history and what food you may like to try with the wine and any questions you may have.

The tasting should be for a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 30. If you think that the tasting will be for more than 30 people please let me and we can discuss options.

The tastings can be themed as you want them, below are some examples of tastings

New world red wines – Try and compare some great red wines from the new world such as from Chile, Australia and the U.S.A.
