Wine Tasting ideas for 40th Birthday Parties and Gifts
Reaching 40 is one of the biggest milestones in our lives and definitely a cause for celebration. Our Birthday wine tasting parties at home make for a memorable 40th birthday celebration for the wine lovers among us, spent in the company of friends and family, enjoying good wine and food. If you are planning a surprise party for your other half we can help organise the wine tasting as part of the birthday party celebrations or we can provide a gift voucher for a wine tasting at home for the birthday boy or girl on a future date. We also have gift vouchers for our wine tasting events held in London or Bristol. For an unusual birthday gift we can organise a special wine from the year of birth 1979 - a vintage wine for a vintage birthday!
40th Birthday Wine Tasting Parties
It's sometimes tricky coming up with exciting and original birthday party ideas for friends and family, especially the first really big one - a 40th Birthday! But a wine tasting party can be the perfect way to add a fun twist to traditional celebrations, especially if the person celebrating is a huge fan of wine.
Whether you are arranging the event for yourself, your wife/husband, partner or friend we have a range of tastings to suit the occasion. Our tastings are affordably priced, from £25 per person to £35 per person with a minimum of 10 guests. The Classic Birthday Party Tasting is a great all-round tasting or we have tasting tailored to the birthday girl or birthday boy! We can even customise the wines to suit particular preferences for different countries or grape varieties. To see the different tasting options check out our Birthday Tasting Parties page.
Birthday Venue Ideas
We have hosted wine tastings in all sorts of locations, but many birthday parties tend to be held at home to create a more intimate and relaxed occasion. Alternatively venues such as hotels and restaurants are lovely settings for special birthdays, or perhaps a hired house or cottage in the country for family and friends getting together.
If you need help with selecting a venue do ask us, we have a large database of venues we have used in the past and can recommend.
40th Birthday Gifts
Wine and Wine tastings can make a brilliant gift. We run a number of wine tasting evenings and days in the UK that you can buy tickets or gift vouchers for. If you are thinking of buying a special bottle of wine, we can supply vintage wine from 40 years ago.
Wine Tasting Gift Vouchers
We have a range of wine tastings guests can attend. Options include a One Day (£85) or Evening (£30) tastings in London, Bristol, Buckinghamshire and our weekend wine tasting breaks in the Midlands for (£130) all inclusive of two nights accommodation, a full day's wine tasting and meals.
Our One Day Wine Courses are very popular as birthday presents that you can share if you choose to. For £85 per person these include a full day's tasting and a three course lunch. We run this in a number of locations in the UK follow the link for current availability and locations
40 year old Vintage Wines for a Vintage Birthday
To put the icing on the cake why not include a vintage wine. Many wines from 1979 are tasting remarkably good. Bordeaux wines and Penfolds Grange are still drinking well after 40 years, and some vintage Champagnes such as Dom Perignon can be a real surprise. 40 year old Port is great at this age and Madeira is only just starting to taste really good! Sweet white wines from Germany and France are a real treat. Prices for these wines typically range between £100 to £300+ and make a perfect present or extra special treat at a wine tasting. Talk to us about what is currently available and suitable.
Birthday Tasting Testimonials
Some feedback from our birthday tastings...
Paul, Sep 2018
I utilised ThirtyFifty for a home wine tasting to celebrate a friend's birthday. We had ten people present and the expert (and she unquestionably was) who represented the organisation was Rachael, who had travelled across from Leeds
We didn't particularly know what to expect, and not everyone in our group are regular wine drinkers (including myself) but Rachael was superb throughout: friendly, incredibly knowledgeable about every aspect of the wine industry and made the whole evening an incredibly enjoyable experience
If you're looking to do something slightly different then I would without hesitation recommend ThirtyFifty - and would specifically recommend Rachael in a heartbeat.

Just wanted to say thank you for organising last nights wine tasting.
Rachael was excellent & we all had a thoroughly good night.
Thanks once again,
The Special Birthday Celebrations
