One of the joys of wine tasting is that it is a great social experience. The opportunity to chat, discuss and compare notes on the wines make it a fantastic way to celebrate a special occasion.
From birthdays and anniversaries to hen parties or a gathering of friends, wine tasting is a perfect way to bring people together.
At The Wine Tasting Co, our priority is not only sharing great wines, but also ensuring that your party suits your needs. We can arrange the party in the comfort of your own home, or at a venue of your choice, and it will be pitched at a level that suits the group. This means everyone will learn something new and leave with the confidence to explore wines further in the future.
Both you and your guests will learn how to taste wine, as well as learning plenty of interesting facts which can be used to impress at the next dinner party.
The idea behind our wine tasting events is for them to be a fun, informative evening, where you have the opportunity to taste and enjoy some gorgeous wines, hand-picked by us. The theme of the tasting can be tailored to suit your group. Before the tasting, we will discuss possible themes with the host to ensure that everybody gets the most out of their tasting.
Here are a few theme ideas to tantalise your tastebuds:
• Classic wines
• Old World versus New World
• A trip around the world
• Grape varieties
• Exploring one specific country – for example Italy, France, New Zealand or America
• Blind tasting – this could be for the whole evening or just for one or two wines
• Port tasting
• Champagne and sparkling wine tasting.
And just to tempt you a little bit further, here’s an idea of what a party includes, based on 12 people:
• Eight still wines – four red, four white
• The glasses – so no washing up required!
• Tasting notes for all guests to take home
• Games and quizzes if required, with a prize for the winner
• Spittoons for those not wishing to have the effects of alcohol
Each party is about two hours long, but again, we can tailor this to suit your specific event. Hosts often like to provide nibbles for their guests, but we can also arrange to provide food for you, meaning all you need to do is sit back and relax, while enjoying some fantastic wines.
Party costs from £300.
