Network wine tastings are a great way for guests to mix and mingle with wine providing a common ground. They are ideal for medium or large groups, for entertaining clients after a conference or for a pre-dinner drinks reception.
The walkabout format encourages colleagues and clients to circulate while participating in the wine tasting at whatever level they wish. As well as entertaining existing clients it is a good platform for meeting new contacts or renewing contact with past clients.
Each event is tailored to the occasion taking into account your objectives, time available, number of guests, the venue and catering.
If a simple reception-style tasting is required we can keep things short and sweet with a glass of fizz to receive guests followed by a tasting of one or two wines. This also provides the chance to thank guests for coming and get your company message across.
For a longer networking event we will also set up tastings stations for guests to visit and taste wine at their leisure. Each station can be themed with wine challenges and fun activities. Guests are invited to take part in the challenges while sipping wine. ThirtyFifty’s team of wine experts will be on hand throughout to talk to guests and ensure the event runs smoothly from start to finish.
To give your event a hook to hang it on we can theme the whole event so that the wines all tie in with one central idea. This might be Champagne & Sparkling wine, comparing different vintages of the same wine or wines matched with cheese. We also host gin network tastings and beer tastings and can combine all three in our popular Best of British theme with top quality wines, beers and gin from the UK to sample.
Seasonal Themes and Sporting Events
To fit with the time of year or a sports event we can theme wines, beers and whiskies accordingly. Christmas, Halloween, Burns Night, Oktoberfest are a few examples or even wines and beers from Rugby Nations or World Cup football teams!
Wine & Cheese
We can provide a fabulous selection of speciality cheeses to show off the wines to their very best, ensuring your event has a real wow factor.
Prices for network wine tastings vary depending upon numbers, wine chosen, venue and catering.
