Wine
TASTINGS

It's easy to book a wine tasting with me...

3 simple steps

1. We agree your brief - the date of your event, what you want the outcome to be and what your vision is. Let’s agree event size, venue and what the key takeaways need to be.

2. The theme. Potential themes include ‘women in wine’ (wines made by female winemakers), fraud and fakes in the wine world or climate-friendly wines. Anything is possible and I can select wines to suit most budgets and entertaining limits

3. Agree the budget, sign contracts and pay the deposit.

Client events

My most popular event format. You bring the clients and prospects you want to engage with and I will do the rest – bringing the spark to your event, filling the room with energy and fun. I can lead the group through a relaxed and accessible wine tasting which also allows for your commercial messages to be landed.​

Team events

Get your team back to the office and drive employee engagement and retention. I will send the chosen wines to your office well in advance of the event. On the night we pop the corks and I guide the group through a tutored tasting. If you would like to add grazing boards with cheeses, charcuterie, olives and crackers, I can do that too! I also offer an ‘event fee only’ option for team events where you provide all of the wines and glassware and I arrive to do the tasting with your team. The choice is yours!

Dinner & Wine
 

Sometimes clients have a dinner planned where you want a wine expert, or a drinks reception planned where you just need someone else to work the room and entertain the guests. I’m very happy playing this role for my clients and I will seamlessly fit into your team and represent your brand with professionalism and fun

No event too small or too large

Sometimes it’s just about getting a small, often very senior group together. I have relationships with some of London’s best wine bars and often use their private rooms to deliver tastings for small groups.

See below for inspiring venue ideas.

 

Vineyard visits
UK and Global

 

I offer hosted day trips for you and your clients to some of the UK’s finest wine producers – just 90 minutes from London on the train and we can be sipping sparkling wine together looking out over the vines. The events include a walk through the vines, tutored tastings, lunch (options range from barbecues to fine dining) plus a bottle for everyone to take home. I can have your group back to London before 6pm having spent a magical day with you.

I also host globally from Prosecco to South Africa.

Either for corporates or you can join trips when they are running. Just drop me an email

Virtual
TASTINGS

I have hosted virtual wine tastings regularly from California to New York, Hong Kong to Japan to Europe and Australia. Virtual events are a great way to connect global and regional, clients, teams and prospects. I send full bottles of wine (and cheese/charcuterie if desired) to everyone in advance of the tasting and we all dial in via Zoom at the appointed time. All you need to do is give me 3 weeks’ notice on addresses, set a time and a date and away we go – I’ve hosted groups simultaneously across different continents and timezones and shipped wine to guests in New York, Hong Kong, Ghana, Australia, Japan, South Korea and more

THEMES
pick your experience

Not every wine tasting needs a theme – but they do add fun and a direction for the conversation to naturally go in. Here are some fun themes that I like – but I can work with almost any theme – the only limit is your imagination!

Net Zero

WINES

Take a walk in the Garden of Eden by discovering some of the world’s first truly net zero wines with no climate impact. World class wines but produced in a way that has a fraction of the climate impact.

Women

IN WINE

Meet the female winemakers blazing trails in the industry – find out how they make their wines, what perspectives they bring to the sector and let’s talk about diversity both within the wine world and in terms of how female consumers choose, buy and talk about wine

The New

NEW WORLD

New wine-producing regions are gaining prominence including Canada, China and of course the UK! – so what are the wines like? What makes the ‘new new world’ stand out and what can we expect in future​

WINE

MAKERS

of colour

Explore the work of winemakers of colour from around the world and find out what types of wine they are making? What challenges did they overcome to get where they are today?​
