A unique way to taste and learn about wine

ThirtyFity was established in 2002 by Chris and Jane Scott and is named after the latitudes where the majority of the world's wine grapes are grown, between 30 degrees and 50 degrees latitude, North and South of the equator.

We set about demystifying wine by bringing fun and no-nonsense wine tastings to people in their own homes. Inspired by a mutual love of wine and a growing interest in the subject, we trained up on wine with the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. It was this training that made us realise how, with a little knowledge, people could get a lot more out of wine and, the more knowledge they had, the more they would enjoy it.

Our wine tastings proved popular with groups of friends with an interest in wine who liked the idea of being entertained (and educated) with wine. From private tastings at home we quickly expanded to corporate events and wine courses and we introduced an online shop, enabling customers to buy any of the wines they'd enjoyed at our tastings.

From our early days in the London area, we've increased our national coverage with a team of wine experts running tastings across England, Wales and Scotland. In 2015 we were delighted to win the International Wine Challenge Wine Educator of the Year award for the second time! We first won the award in 2008 and to win again was a great achievement, recognising our team's great efforts in educating more and more people about wine through tastings and courses, as well as the educational benefits of our weekly wine podcast, The UK Wine Show. Now in its tenth year, the podcast is produced by Chris with news and interviews to give a deeper insight into latest trends and hot topics within the wine industry. If you get a chance, do tune in.

We hope you'll find lots of ideas and info on learning about wine as you browse our website and that you'll be joining us soon for a ThirtyFifty wine tasting experience in 2021 and beyond!

Our clients say...

Chris, Thanks so much for the wine tasting.  We all really enjoyed it and I think you pitched it wonderfully so that those of us who know next to nothing could learn a lot and those who already knew a bit learnt more and got the chance to show off!


Our clients say...

Chris, Thank you, everyone had a great time. Jane was fab, all the girls commented on her. She was very organised and happy to join in with the banter and fun. It was a great way to start the weekend.


Our clients say...

Jane and Chris, Just wanted to thank you both so much for making the champagne tasting event on Wednesday so successful. We received lots of positive comments and our guests clearly enjoyed the event. Many thanks to all of you at 30/50 for making our event so memorable.
