We have organised successful corporate wine tasting events for (among others) Astra Zeneca, Ernst & Young and Barclays:


Recent review: "Mark helped me organise the event from the word go; it was very well put together, fun and informative at the same time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this... great stuff! Thanks Mark!" (Read full Tripadvisor review here).

We can run corporate events for companies large and small at various venues, including the opportunity to host it in a Cambridge college (see image on the right).

Our packages can be tailored to meet a wide variety of requirements and to suit most budgets. Companies use us for events such as:

  • Client Entertainment
  • Staff Team-Building, Reward/Entertainment
  • Business Seminars/Conferences (usually prior to dinner!)

We also host fund-raising wine tastings for local & national charitable organisations.

Our format for an evening can be tailor made, but normally includes the following - 

  • Hire/cleaning of professional ISO tasting glasses
  • Chilling equipment for optimal serving of white wines
  • Approx 6 different high-quality wines
  • Professional tasting notes /quiz sheets on each wine
  • A fun quiz/team format tutored tasting
  • Nez du Vin Aroma - sets of wine-related scents  (fun!)

An event can take many formats, from fun and informal with quiz/team element, to a tutored wine tasting with a wide variety of wines and it can be planned to last for as long as required - from a 30 minute pre-dinner Champagne tasting to a full 'Introduction to Wine'. All equipment, glasses, wine, notes etc are supplied.

One proven & successful format involves a fun, team-based wine quiz based on a blind-tasting game with lots of carefully-picked clues which allow novices as much chance of winning as seasoned wine drinkers.  

Wine Tastings can also include a rapid introductory session on how to taste wine – explained in a no-nonsense practical way - and our aroma phial kits, a box of wine-related aromas that are a uniquely inventive way of developing the guests' sensory skills in a way that provides entertainment and interest. Theme evenings can include French vs New World, Australia vs America, old wine or young wine, Italy vs Spain etc. 

Private Groups

We can also arrange private celebration tastings at a selected venue or in your own home if you wish - click here to read more about that

Or, for something different, why not consider hiring us for a privately Chauffered Wine Tasting Punt tour of the River Cam!
