How it works
Agree a date
if you have already set a date we'll need to check availability, otherwise we can find a mutual date or provide a choice of dates. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays need to be booked further ahead as these are the busiest days.
Number of guests
We'll need to know how many guests you intend to invite and how many you think will attend! Minimum numbers are 10 - if you have fewer than 10 we can still run the tasting but need to charge for 10 guests. We ask that you confirm numbers 2 weeks in advance and let us know of any last minute changes up to the day before.
We can run the tasting at your home or at any alternative venue that is happy to accommodate us. At a restaurant the tasting needs to be in a private room and not in the main restaurant. Many will offer the room free of charge, provided you stay to eat. Here are some venues we have used previously or can recommend.
We suggest nibbles or cheese & biscuits are provided plus water during the tasting.
The Wine Tasting
We provide wine tasting glasses, spittoons and tasting notes. Most of our wine tastings are 2 hours long but can be shorter or longer as required.
We accept debit/credit cards, cash or cheques at the tasting or card payments if you prefer to pay in advance.
Terms & Conditions
To confirm a booking ThirtyFifty require a non-refundable deposit of £100 or 25% of the total fee - whichever is greatest, based on the estimated number of guests at time of booking.
This deposit is required within 10 working days of a provisional booking being made.
The balance is payable on the day of the wine tasting based on final numbers attending with a minimum of 10 people.
If you cancel the tasting ThirtyFifty will charge the following cancellation fee:
If the booking is cancelled more than 10 working days before the date of the tasting ThirtyFifty will retain the deposit. This deposit can be used against a future tasting if re-booked within 6 months.
If the booking is cancelled within 10 working days of the wine tasting the deposit will be retained and may not be used against future bookings.
