Private Wine Tastings

We can host private tasting events all over Scotland (although I have been as far as London in the deep South). For a standard tasting with up to 23 people, the cost is £391, with £17 a head beyond this. For a Champagne tasting with up to 23 people, we charge £575 with an additional £25 a head thereafter.

These prices include - all wine, glasses, tasting sheets & an experienced, expert tutor with a duration of around 1 1/2 hours. Aprox 1/3 of a glass of each wine will be poured per person. 8 good quality wines will be served with a variety of different themes / formats on offer (see some suggestions below.) The most popular format is a sparkling to start, followed by 4 whites & 3 reds. We can also organise bespoke tastings based on a specific event or particular area of interest.

VENUES

We are happy to come to your office or boardroom to do the event. We also routinely use several “third party” venues & restaurants around Edinburgh. Third party venues may incur a hire fee and are subject to availability. Maximum tasting numbers are only limited by the venue capacity. If numbers go above 70 then we would suggest more of a “wine fair” format rather than tutored event - we provide appropriate numbers of expert staff to pour & chat whatever your numbers. Travelling time & expenses for venues outwith Edinburgh will be charged at cost.

IDEAS FOR TASTING THEMES

Wines from around the World; Wine & Cheese Tasting (+ £5 per head for cheese); New World vs Old World; Unusual Grape varieties; Sauvignon Blanc alternatives; Six Nations Rugby (Wine, cider, beer & Whisky will be involved!); Wine Olympics; Champagnes vs Sparkling (£25 min. per head). You name it, we will try to do it! 

IDEAS FOR FORMATS

Straightforward - Tutor pours & talks through the wines. Informal & easy-going style.
Call My Wine Bluff - a fun competition to guess the right wines from their descriptions.
Blind Tasting – Guessing game for some, or all, of the wines or prices or countries or grape varieties, as easy as you fancy. Expert knowledge NOT required!
Fun Quiz – tasting with questions and a general wine knowledge quiz (with plenty clues!)
Whisky Tastings – let us lead you through the regional styles.
Beer Tastings - taste the finest of Scottish or World Ales from our range of 300!
