Birthday? Anniversary? Work social? Hen Party? Give yourself the VIP treatment with our Private Wine Tasting experience!
We can come to you or we can arrange a private room for your group to eat in privacy afterwards either in a Cambridge restaurant, hotel or University college (although colleges won't accept hens or stags). You will feel truly pampered as you experience a fun wine tasting followed by a delicious meal. Venues with a private rooms include The Royal Cambridge Hotel, The Cambridge Brew House, d'Arry's, Hotel Felix and Cafe Rouge (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).
Or for something different, why not consider asking us to conduct your Wine Tasting party on a Privately Chauffered Punt? The college backs are spectacular at any time of year and the punting company can provide umbrellas and blankets in case it showers.
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).
