Hen Party? Birthday? Anniversary? Staff social or office party? Give yourself the VIP treatment with our Private Wine Tasting experience!

We can arrange a private room for your group either in a Cambridge restaurant, hotel or University college. You will feel truly pampered as you experience a fun wine tasting followed by a delicious meal. Venues with a private room include The Royal Cambridge Hotel, The Cambridge Brew House, Hotel Felix, Gonville Hotel and various Cambridge colleges (we can check availability).

Our 'Whose Wine is it Anyway?' game is a great way to learn more about wine. It's a proven format involving a fun quiz with lots of carefully-picked clues and helpful tips from your wine host to allow novices as much chance of winning as seasoned wine drinkers! 

Recent Hen Party review: "Mark was informative and funny. We learnt a lot and enjoyed seeing the bride-to-be open a bottle of champagne with a sword!" (Read review on Tripadvisor here).

Private Party review: "This was an excellent activity to do as a group, very chilled yet extremely enjoyable. I would highly recommend this for a group of friends or work social followed by a meal."  (Read review on Tripadvisor here).

We will sample at least 6 different quality wines and compare them side by side and you can include Champagne. We always include a rapid introductory session on how to taste wine – explained in a no-nonsense practical way - and we can introduce our aroma phial kits, a box of wine-related aromas that are a uniquely inventive test of your sensory skills in a way that provides entertainment and interest.

We can also run themed evenings such as France vs New World, Bordeaux vintages, Old vs Young wines, Australia vs America (or anything else you might like to suggest).

You can read more here about our Staff Social wine tastings or College Wine & Dine for groups. 

Or for something different, why not consider a Wine Tasting party on the River? The college backs are spectacular at any time of year and we can arrange a privately chauffered punt along the river while your wine host entertains you with 6 wines to try!

This is the ideal Cambridge punting experience for hen parties, staff socials and birthday groups. Take in the wonderful views of the colleges whilst enjoying a leisurely wine tasting on the river.

(Note we don't offer this as scheduled tours for individuals - group enquiries only please).
