How it works
When you contact us we'll take your details and respond to your brief with a written proposal. Normally this will include at least two price options for the wines.
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. Wednesdays and Thursdays are the busiest evenings for corporate events and need to be booked further ahead.
Number of guests
We'll need to know roughly how many guests you think will be attending in order to put a quote together. We ask that you confirm your final numbers 2 weeks prior to the event.
We can run the tasting at your offices or at any alternative venue that is happy to accommodate us - these are some venues we have used or can recommend.
We suggest canapés, nibbles or cheese & biscuits are provided plus water/light refreshments. This can be easy to arrange yourselves or we can help by recommending a caterer. We will happily liaise with your caterers on food & wine matching.
We provide wine tasting glasses, spittoons and all of the kit needed for the tasting. A qualified wine expert will host the tasting (all of our team have the Level 3 or 4 WSET qualification). Additional staff may be required to assist, depending on the number of guests, your requirements and format of wine tasting. Most events last for 2 hours but can be shorter or longer as required.
