Competitive, educational and fun, you’ll be treating your friends, clients and colleagues to an evening they won’t forget. Guests are divided into teams for an entertaining and informative blind wine tasting competition of eclectic examples of global wine styles.
Egos and competitive natures come to the fore as The Vintner host delivers the event with the perfect balance of education, coax and tease, making it thoroughly enjoyable for all. There are prizes for the winners and runners-up, whilst the unfortunate losers go home with a suitably embarrassing booby prize.
Group size: 40 - 100
Price: £50 - £90 ex VAT per head
Duration: 2 - 2.5hrs
This can be held in most restaurants with a private room. We work with the chef to tailor a menu suitable for your guests and the wines you’d like us to show. With each course we serve two different wines, talking the room through each one, explaining why they have been chosen and why they both go well with the food, despite them being very different in style.
This is an unobtrusive event where The Vintner is very much the side show, providing just enough interesting and fun information with the fine wines to keep the flow going but not too much to detract from the main event.
Group size: 8 - 40
Guests are greeted with a glass of fizz and armed with a tasting sheet and a glass before making their way round three tasting tables.
One and two hold a selection of white and red wines respectively. A Vintner will talk your guests through the wines. The third is the blind tasting table, guests will taste two mystery wines and fill out a multiple choice answer sheet. Players must correctly guess the wines estate, grape variety, country, vintage and price in order to score points. the winners will go away with a prize bottle and a ring of The Vintner bell!
