Some feedback from our private clients...
Suzanne - Kingston Grammar School, Oct 2019
Friday night was a huge success and I've had such positive feedback from everyone who attended. Chris delivered a very informative and entertaining evening and he couldn't have done a better job. The Quiz rounds were very popular and really did bring the whole evening together.
The cheeses that Teddington Cheese paired with the wine were perfect and for your own interest they were Brie de Meaux, Schlossberger, Lanark Blue and Rachael - my new favourite cheese is Schlossberger!
I think this is an event we will put on every other year so we'll definitely be using you again and I'll spread the word.
Tony, Aug 2019
A brief note to say thank you to you and Helen for organising an excellent event on Saturday evening at Maggie's 50th celebrations and asking you to specifically pass on our thanks to Helen for providing such an interesting evening
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the tasting and commented on how well Helen presented it and her knowledge of the subject - the wines went down very well and the party afterwards lasted until well after midnight.
The wine selection was excellent and we enjoyed the New Zealand dessert wine served at the end of the event - a great way to finish off.
We do have one question - can you tell us what the two wines presented for the blind tasting were? - we enjoyed them too much to take any notes of the names!
Once again, our thanks to Helen.
Maggie & Tony
Andy, Jul 2019
Just to say thank you for hosting an excellent wine & beer tasting on Saturday. It was the perfect combination of informative, enjoyable and relaxing and everyone had a really good time and spoke very highly of the experience. And from the first point of contact I’ve found Thirty Fifty an extremely easy company to arrange such an event with and great value for money.
Feel free to use my words as a review.
Cate - Bubbenhall Village Hall, Jul 2019
The event was brilliant. Anissa was brilliant, just the right balance of information and fun.
The wines were all lovely and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.
We will definitely look to book for another event in the future.
A great event!
Thank you so much.
Kat, Jun 2019
Yes the beer & wine tasting went very well thank you and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Quite tricky for Mark to get a word in edgeways but yes a great evening!
I would definitely recommend you/ use you guys again. The reds were particularly good
Thanks so much to you and Mark.
Kat, May 2019
The gin tasting was great, far more informative than I thought it would be, the guys loved it. Chris was a great laugh and fitted right in, he was a breath of fresh air. We will no doubt be back in touch to organise another tasting, maybe whiskey.
Regards and thank you once again for organising.
Lisa, May 2019
I just wanted to say a really big thank you for our tasting session yesterday Robert. Everyone has fed back how much they enjoyed it and your style.
Thanks ever so much, I will be recommending you to all my friends.
Have a lovely week
Matt, May 2019
We loved it! Robert was utterly brilliant. We learnt more (and drank more) than we expected. The beer & wine tasting was the perfect way to round off the weekend.
Lauren, May 2019
The wine tasting went really well on Friday thank you, we all really enjoyed it. Diana was really enthusiastic and knowledgeable about all the wines, so we felt like we learned a lot. Please pass on our thanks to Diana.
Leanne, Apr 2019
It was great thank you! Ann-Marie was perfect. She was very knowledgeable and perfectly judged the audience and was relaxed and enthusiastic.
Courtney, Apr 2019
Mark was wonderful, everyone enjoyed the wine tasting and the banter we had with him.
Thank you so much!
Jill, Mar 2019
The evening was a total success with many members compliments at the end of the night and now follow up emails of thanks and appreciation.
Diana was a very engaging person, hit the spot perfectly, right amount of humour and information, she’s a natural.
Coincidentally as I write my reply, two more emails have just landed. The feedback is coming in thick and fast.
"very enjoyable evening in which I actually learnt something about wine!
"Great fun and lots of learning!”
"such a splendid event”
I was personally thanked by the committee for coming up with 30/50 and for ‘finding’ Diana.
It has made me realise that our club would benefit from a little more education.
Thank you again, for all your understanding and interest during our phone conversations and for providing our Wine Club with this top opportunity.
My very best wishes to you Jane
Naveen, Dec 2018
The evening was fantastic, everyone had a great time. Anissa was very engaging and knowledgeable. She put us all at ease and made the evening flow very well. I would definitely recommend Thirtyfifty to my colleagues and friends for the future. Best wishes for the New Year and please pass on our thanks to Anissa.
Clare, Dec 2018
Jo was a real hit. The party went really well and with a group of 13 strong characters we had a fab time - I would really recommend the tasting celebration night especially with Jo.
As I got talking to a friend when Jo left I didn't have a chance to pass on my heart felt thanks. Please could you do so.
I might not have sussed the flavours but Chris and I did pick out the Shiraz!
Swati, Oct 2018
The wine tasting with Chris went really well and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. A lot of people asked which company I used and I have already passed your details on to many people. Was very pleased with the experience. Thank you again.
Melissa, Oct 2018
Thank you. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and please pass on our thanks to Anissa. She was really engaging and made the night fun and informative too.
She also coped really well with our children who kept popping their head in every so often.
Eloise, Oct 2018
We just want to say a huge thank you for the fantastic wine tasting last night, we had such great fun. I hope you did too...especially your first Pyjama wine tasting!
You were great fun and by far the best wine tasting we have ever been to.
Terrie, Oct 2018
Thanks Jane we had a wonderful evening and Anissa was fabulous and really knowledgeable.
Thanks for organising,
Andy, Sep 2018
The tasting went really well thank you. Everyone enjoyed themselves very much and it was a great evening. Abbie was great, the evening was very informative and we learnt a lot. We particularly liked the dessert wine and the white wines. The orange wine was interesting!
Kirsty, Aug 2018
Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our wine tasting with Antoni yesterday. He was fun, very knowledgable and accommodating. It's clear he has a real passion for wine, which shines through.
Thanks for your help in organising a fun day for my team, everyone has said how much they enjoyed it. I'll happily recommend Thirty Fifty to my friends!
Diane, Jul 2018
Yes thank you we had such a great time. My guests loved the afternoon, something different, Elaina was so knowledgable and professional in her delivery and explanations.
Thank you again for the excellent customer care I have experienced which made my birthday very special and memorable. I have already recommended you to members of my family and no doubt will be contacting you again.
Huw , Jun 2018
Rob did a fantastic job – we were really pleased with how he led the sessions – he was informative, engaging and humorous. We would definitely book him again – all those present enjoyed themselves!
Many thanks again
Sandie, Jun 2018
Absolutely brilliant thank you
Robert is such a lovely man. Full of info and we learnt loads as well as enjoying the tastings. Having been to wine tastings at friends house I can definitely say everyone agreed this was the best. Robert was informative, amusing, relaxed and just the sort of person you are happy to welcome into your home . Unlike many companies he did not end up with hard sell of products which was refreshing.
Jodi, Feb 2018
Just a quick note to let you know that we really enjoyed the tasting last night and Marty was fantastic.
Thanks again for everything.
Chris (Dave New Tours), Feb 2018
Our group thoroughly enjoyed the event with Erik, thank you. I don't think they knew what to expect really but really positive feedback so a big thank you for your help in making this group's tour a great success! Thank you.
Jan (Thanet Wine Appreciation Society), Jan 2018
Hello Jane and Chris,
Firstly, I hope you had a good journey back to Twickenham and the road and weather conditions were favourable, and you got back in reasonable time.
Secondly, and just as important, on behalf of the Committee, members and guests of the Society, a huge thank you for your wonderful presentation on New Zealand wines. Even though you have lived in the UK for a while now, your love for your country and their wines shone through. It was informative, witty and generally just very enjoyable, especially when you had us standing to taste one of the wines!! A first for the Wine Society, and I think you had most people when you alluded to Australia as being the third Island!!
Feedback, even before you left, was very positive, so, once again a huge thank for a wonderful evening.
Lisa, Dec 2017
Thank you, we had a great time at our wine & beer tasting evening. Everyone really enjoyed it and thought Helen ran the evening perfectly. It's definitely something we would consider doing again.
Moira, Nov 2017
Abbie was absolutely fantastic; she was a mine of information and very entertaining.
We enjoyed the wines she brought a long and appreciated the reasons for choosing those particular bottles.
We all had a great time and the Party continued long after she had left.
I have received numerous cards of appreciation for the event.
We will certainly have Abbie back for another event next year,
Amanda, Oct 2017
We had a fabulous evening and Erik was absolutely brilliant.
Erik was both informative and engaging, he created an air of competition but kept it light hearted and really got the measure of our guests.
I would absolutely book again and would highly recommend him.
Many thanks to Erik for creating a great experience for us.
Laura, Oct 2017
I had such a great evening, thank you. Diana was brilliant. Very informative but kept the whole evening full of fun. The duration was perfect and the wine selection exactly as we wished it to be. I’ve already recommended you to many of our friends and family and look forward to another evening in the future!
Shelley, Oct 2017
It all went well thanks; Abbie was very professional. I think she may have thought we were a bit naughty, as we were all rather jolly when she was talking about the wine initially, but once she had our measure things went very well indeed.
All the guests said it was ‘stroke of genius’ as a good way to start the house party weekend.
Thanks again for setting it all up.
Faye, Sep 2017
I just wanted to say thank you for providing an excellent service - Anissa was brilliant. We all had a fabulous time and would definitely do it again!
Thank you again.
Helen, Sep 2017
We had a wonderful evening. Helen was fantastic - everyone gave glowing reviews after she had left. Made us feel really relaxed, and she joined in with our banter/silliness and blended into the group seamlessly. We loved the wines and felt the cheese portions were really generous - very good value for money! Some proper learning and lots of fun. Cannot praise her enough really! Also, from an organiser's point of view I thought you and Helen were both great to work with - I contacted a few other companies to price compare etc and your responses filled me with so much confidence that we were going to be looked after and have great service that it was easy to choose ThirtyFifty over the others. Helen's contact was also very thoughtful and reassuring. 5 stars!
I will be telling all my friends about you :)
Jaine, Aug 2017
We had a brilliant night thank you. Anissa was lovely and very knowledgeable. We used your company 11 years ago for my daughters 18th birthday party which was hosted by Erik. Anissa told us that Erik is still involved with the company. Please would you pass on our regards to him. As a family we often reminisce about that evening. It was very special and great fun.
Thanks again to you and Anissa for providing me with a fabulous birthday treat.
Claire, Jul 2017
The wine tasting was superb thank you, Antoni was very patient and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend you to friends and family.
Patti, Jul 2017
Helen was as fab as she was before and informative as ever. In fact we all enjoyed it more as everyone was relaxed too. Please thank Helen for her patience with us. We do like to chat.
Friends from Dulwich couldn't believe how good it was for the money. Someone had been to another similar thing but said they scrimped on tasting & rushed through evening.
You're doing a great job.
Roger, Jul 2017
We had a great time. Martin was very informative. My wife is very chuffed to find out she is a super taster when we all thought she was a volume person!
All very good and professionally delivered, thank you
Vicki, Jun 2017
The evening went really well thank you. A big thank you to Antoni, he was absolutely fantastic. Everyone said they would definitely do it again, so it was a big hit!
Beth, May 2017
We had such a brilliant time on Sunday with Elaina- she was fantastic! So informative and helpful with all our wine questions- the girls loved the session and she made it a really special afternoon for Hannah. We were also so thankful to her for coming out on a Sunday evening for the occasion.
Asha, Apr 2017
Thanks for you email.
We all had a lovely time thanks and Ann Marie was a fab host.
It was very informative yet fun and we enjoyed it a lot.
Suzi, Apr 2017
Fabulous evening thank you, most interesting wine tasting I've been too, with some fun games quiz questions too! Everyone really enjoyed the evening!
Jackie, Apr 2017
Everything went very well thank you. Helen was great, everyone loved her!
I would definitely book again.
Please pass on my thanks again to Helen.
Helen, Apr 2017
The wine tasting session was brilliant and everybody in the group really enjoyed it.
Peter, Apr 2017
Thank you so much for last night's tasting. You were brilliant.
Everyone was unanimous about how much they enjoyed themselves. You led us through beautifully from the basics and taught us as we tasted.
The choice of wines was fabulous and you made the evening such a whole lot of fun, too.
Thank you so much from Katie and I.
Katie, Apr 2017
Thanks for the email. Yes, we really enjoyed it, and also learnt quite a lot too! Anissa was great, and pitched the evening just to our level of knowledge.
Our friends thoroughly enjoyed it too, so it was altogether a great success!
Lucy, Mar 2017
Yes it was all great thank you! Ann-Marie was a fab host and all my friends had lots of fun.
Jas, Jan 2017
We all had a fantastic time, i had messages from all that attended the following day to say that they a great evening. A big thank you to Abbie, she was both informative and entertaining throughout the evening. Really enjoyed the competitive nature of the quiz, wine was good and learnt quite a bit in a very short time. I would certainly recommend the experience to others.
Barry, Dec 2016
This event was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone including the non-drinkers. Erik was a real star with his unique style of presentation which not only did we enjoy but understood and grasped the more technical facts. He got everyone involved, no mean feat when you consider the wide age range attending ie 16 to 87. Jane I would heartily recommend this experience, Erik and indeed your company to anyone.
Della, Dec 2016
Hello, we all thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting. Marion was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The evening was a great combination of information, activities and tasting. Great value for money too. Great communication by everyone and flexible to our requirements (mystery bottle of a more expensive wine).
Hayley, Dec 2016
We all had a fantastic evening thank you, Rob was brilliant! Had lots of lovely texts from friends the next day saying how much they had enjoyed themselves. Most importantly of all Andrew loved it, he was so surprised and the whole wine tasting party experience lived up to what he'd expected. Please pass on my many thanks to Rob as I'm sure I did on Saturday but it is all a little blurry!! I shall definitely be recommending your company to all friends and family. Thank you for making it all so easy to arrange.
Joy, Nov 2016
Very enjoyable and interesting wine tasting evening! Judith Cliff
Great evening! personable teaching style, All enjoyed!! Thank you. Elizabeth Geaney
Really informative and fun evening. I would definitely recommend to friends. Lucy Joyce
Lovely evening all round, thank you Helen. Lynne Marjoram
Lovely experience and very well explained, love the cocktail! Joy Watkins
Heather, Nov 2016
Helen was so very lovely - we all had a wonderful time!! She was so knowledgeable when it came to wine - and also when it came to groups of adults who were imbibing :)
We were so thrilled with the entire evening and would recommend it again to anyone!
Thank you again!
Bea, Oct 2016
It was all fantastic thanks so much! I thought Garry was very talented to pitch it at so many levels, for those that wanted to learn and those that just wanted to drink and he was brilliant at adapting to the situation as well. I've already recommended you to several people!
Thanks and regards
Jenny, Oct 2016
We had an absolutely fantastic time thank you. Erik was great, everyone really enjoyed the wine tasting it was just the right balance between learning something and having fun.
Anne, Oct 2016
Thank you for organising the wine tasting, everything was great I think people really enjoyed the event, Chris was very good!!
Sara, Oct 2016
The party went very well, Elaina was very informative but kept it light for us. We all enjoyed it very much and I have passed on the email she sent me regarding wine prices etc if any of my friends want to buy a bottle.
Thanks very much
Joanne, Aug 2016
Thank you very much for the email. The day was fantastic and we all loved the wine and chocolate tasting. Erik was brilliant, please pass on my thanks again to him.
I would certainly recommend to any of my friends.
Thanks again for all your help in organising this.
Simon, May 2016
All went very well and everyone had a great time. I must take my hat off to Camilla who managed to keep going in a fun and informative way as the group got more and more rowdy!
Many thanks for the evening, I think we'll be talking about it for months to come.
Laura, Apr 2016
Yes all went great thanks, Rob was great and provided some really interesting wine facts - he’d even researched the only winery in Cambodia which was a nice touch! Everyone really enjoyed it and we even found a red that some of the non-red drinkers liked!
Thanks very much for your help in organising it all, I’d definitely recommend ThirtyFifty to other people!
Deepa, Apr 2016
Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic time on Saturday - Camilla was great. I would happily recommend your company and the wine tasting parties!
Lynn, Mar 2016
Thanks for your email. We had a lovely evening. Thank you so much for your help organising. Ann-Marie was brilliant. She entertained all of my guests and impressed everyone with her knowledge of champagne. I think the mix of the champagne tasting and the Tapas worked really well and everyone had a great time.
Brian, Mar 2016
We had a great time with Rob on Saturday. The evening went really well and everyone has said how much they enjoyed it. Rob was brilliant, pitched the information just right.
Claire, Feb 2016
All positive feedback, we had a fantastic time! Erik was lovely, very interesting and funny. I will absolutely recommend you to others and book you again if the occasion arises.
The venue was great actually. We were in a private room that looked like a boardroom and very formal when we arrived, but worked really well for both the tasting and dinner. It was the perfect size for a group approx. 10 to 16 people. The food was very nice too.
Thanks again for a great night,
Sally, Jan 2016
The evening went really well thank you and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Gary was great and very engaging and entertaining. I think some were definitely interested in hosting their own evenings, so hopefully you'll hear from them.
Jo, Nov 2015
Saturday was absolutely fantastic. We all had a fabulous time and David was great - he made it all a lot of fun and very interesting. He is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions...of which there were many on a whole variety of wines and champagnes. I will definitely recommend this to anyone I know having a celebration and definitely hope to do something similar in the future.
Please pass on thanks to David for making it such an enjoyable evening and especially managing to find the place in the mobile dead zone!
Terry, Nov 2015
We had a really good evening with David, he was very informative about the wines and tasting, and was able to tell us tit bits that we had never heard before, so that was really good. He broke up the evening with a light hearted quiz, in which one of our eldest members came out top. So it was a very successful evening, thank you.
Julie, Oct 2015
The wine tasting was great fun, and Abbie managed our rather rowdy group brilliantly!
Thanks for everything.
Celene, Sep 2015
Just wanted to say Camilla was great on Saturday - we all really enjoyed it, and it was really good value for money too.
So thank you! We will def use you again - quite fancy the beer tasting one next!
Mechelle, Sep 2015
Thank you for your email, Erik was amazing. Once again the course was informative and fun!. I think he may have deserved a medal to put up with us lot. Would not hesitate to use him again and we are thinking about arranging another one pretty soon. Will let you know.
Katherine, Aug 2015
We had a wonderful time on Saturday for the wine tasting with Robert thank you very much. He was very patient, relaxed and good fun. We thank him very much for his time and to you for arranging.
Jill, Jun 2015
Thank you for arranging the wine tasting. We all loved Adrian. He was charming, funny and very knowledgeable and as my friend said with each sip of wine he became better looking. Adrian - the pace was great you let us girls just chat when we wanted and created a lovely relaxed atmosphere where we all felt happy to ask any type of question.
Adrian you really helped to make the evening special!!
Thanks so much.
Caroline, Jun 2015
I was going to get in touch just to say thank you. David was great and it was a really enjoyable couple of hours for us all. We all learned some new information about wine and one of the party was so impressed that she is going to look into booking for her business.
Please pass on our thanks to David.
I will definitely be recommending to friends.
Danielle, Jun 2015
Yes everything went great thank you, everyone had a great time and Ann-Marie was a fantastic host for us. Thanks for a really good event once again!
David, May 2015
Please pass on my thanks to Gary for the beer tasting last night - everyone was most complimentary about the evening and had a very enjoyable time.
Helen, May 2015
A great session - learned lots, had great fun, would love to do it again. Thank you!
Patrick, Feb 2015
Thanks Jane, we had a great time, Helen was great and warmed into the proceedings nicely. She adapted to the time restrictions at the venue and was very informative. Thank you very much for your patience and service provided xXx
Helena, Jan 2015
We had a wonderful time on Saturday, Camilla was fantastic and we all loved it and learned something (well a lot of things) new!!!
I will definitely recommend ThirtyFifty to friends.
Louise, Jan 2015
Yes it was a really good night and she did very well to keep 13 ladies all in check!
Everyone had a great evening.
Please do pass on my thanks to Abbie
Nicky, Jan 2015
Saturday night with Camilla was fantastic, we all had a great night and she accommodated our group perfectly. We had a few party games running while the tasting was happening and she kept us all interested and light-hearted at the same time. We would definitely invite her back for the next one.
We decided against opening the 1973 bottle as we thought it would be a waste after drinking so much. Andy was very impressed and is saving it for a special occasion.
Thank you again for all the organising at such short notice.
Wendy, Jan 2015
We had a fantastic evening, Robert was great. Thank you!
Marianna, Jan 2015
Helen, Thanks for a lovely evening. Everyone really enjoyed it – it was a fantastic evening and by far the best and most informative wine tasting I have done.
David, Dec 2014
The whole office had a fabulous time, thank you. Garry was an absolute Pro, he of course was extremely knowledgeable but managed to combine that with extreme patience to put up with our ignorance and encourage us out of our comfort zones. We had a great laugh, enjoyed some delicious wines and cheeses and the whole event was very popular with the guys in the office. I am sure we will be doing it all again next Christmas if not before.
Samantha, Dec 2014
It was a very good evening, I believe it was enjoyed by all, everyone said so at the time :) Abbie was very good and made it interactive and fun plus very informative. Please thank her for us!
Dave, Dec 2014
I wanted to drop you a quick note to confirm that as expected, Saturday was a resounding success.
We all had a fantastic time.
Helen was a great host, with her personality and knowledge ensuring that we all had the best night.
Dave, Dec 2014
It went very well and Garry was terrific - I think we all enjoyed the easy and interactive way he talked us through the wine “smoke & mirrors” and great fun on the quiz we will recommend you to other friends.
Lucinda, Dec 2014
All went really well thank you, Abbie was very knowledgeable and made it fun too. I will definitely use you guys again and recommend you to others.
Emma, Nov 2014
It went really well, Anthony was brilliant especially as we are quite a loud bunch! We all learnt a lot as well. Thanks, Emma
Rebecca, Nov 2014
Hi Jane, Everything went fabulously and we all really enjoyed ourselves. Both the wines and the cheese were delicious, and we gained a good amount of info from Rob. Please say a huge thank you to Rob as he was both entertaining and knowledgeable.
I would definitely recommend for future events.
Stephen, Nov 2014
The night went really well thank you and Erik was fantastic. We will be running another tasting night at around then same time again next year so I will be in touch then.
Tracey, Nov 2014
Hi Jane, We had a fabulous evening thanks, everyone enjoyed the mix between information and fun. Antony was a great host and got the balance just right. Hopefully we can do another one in the future.
Anwen, Nov 2014
Just a quick mail to thank you so much for a fantastic evening last night. We spent a lot of last night raving about how good it was and what a fantastic way it was to celebrate a birthday. We all felt that we would also happily attend another one of those tastings - even the non-wine drinkers! Professional, knowledgeable and incredibly well put together - and very good value.
Thank you so much!
Lisa, Oct 2014
We had a great evening with Abbie. Everyone enjoyed themselves and were really impressed by the quality of wine offered. I have no hesitation in recommending your company to others and have already done so to a couple of work colleagues.
Thanks again to both yourself and Abbie for a fun and professionally run evening.
Kerry-Anna, Jun 2014
Just a note to say thank you for yesterday. Mr & Mrs Shanly were delighted with Ian and how well it went so thank you very much! Please pass on our appreciation to Ian.
Daniela & Michael, Jun 2014
I just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks to Ian Robertson and your company for organising such a lovely wine tasting for us on Sunday evening.
Ian was fantastic - just the right balance of fun and information and the wines, of course, were delicious! All our friends thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have all been very complimentary about the evening.
This may become a regular event......!
Many thanks again and do pass on our thanks and best wishes to Ian.
Daniela and Michael
Sonia, Jun 2014
Hi Jane, Everything went really well and Toni was brilliant (as always) and managed to keep his patience with quite a rowdy bunch! Please pass on our thanks to him.
Tricia, May 2014
We were treated to a Champagne and Sparkling Wine tasting evening last Saturday evening by our Son and Daughter as a 60th Birthday present. We didn't really know what to expect but as the weather was so nice we held it in the garden and Helen was really knowledgeable and made it a really enjoyable evening. Our friends and family that took part all have told us how much they enjoyed the evening, especially as one of them never really drank Champagne much but has now got the taste for it. We certainly learnt a lot from her and got to taste some wines that we would not normally buy.
Thank You Very Much
Linda, May 2014
Hi Jane, Yes everything went really well on Friday, and the wine tasting was a good start to a thoroughly enjoyable evening! Robert was lovely and I’ve only received really positive comments about our evening – thank you.
Wendy, May 2014
Dear Jane, We had a lovely evening thank you – Abbie did a great job!
Angela, Apr 2014
We had a wonderful time on Saturday with Brian. He pitched it just right. Friendly and low key but very informative. My brother who has attended many wine tasting events spoke very highly of Brian, saying he learned more from him than all the other events he had attended.
The event was a Christmas present from my sons and they could not have chosen a better present. Thank you ThirtyFifty and Brian.
Mark, Apr 2014
Feedback is it was awesome!
Please say a big thanks to Camilla
Great wines and cheese and a lot of fun
I will def recommend you to friends and family
Kay, Mar 2014
Thanks Jane – it was a super evening and everything went like clockwork. All said how they’d enjoyed the evening and learnt something which was great.
Thanks again – a very enjoyable experience.
Gerald, West Surrey Wine Society, Feb 2014
Things went extremely well. Chris gave a most enthusiastic and educational presentation, I learnt a great deal. One doesn't tend to sit with a glass of wine, a cube of sugar and pinch of sat and then nibble the sugar and take a sip of wine, followed by a taste of salt and a sip of wine and comment on how one finds the difference. Quite an eye opener. And that is long before one gets to chew the chilli and sip the wine! When we got a chance to try the wines without the 'add-ons' they were very enjoyable and not much went into the spittoons.
We are already talking about inviting Chris back next year for another of his presentations.
Sarah, Feb 2014
Anne-Marie was amazing! She was so lovely and fun and very knowledgeable - got some great feedback from our guests too so thank you!
Rachel, Jan 2014
Hi Jane, We all had a fabulous time on Sat, Ann-Marie was a great host making the evening both fun and knowledgeable. I would definitely consider another evening in the future.
Lesley, Jan 2014
Hi Jane, Yes everything went really well. Our host's knowledge of wine and interaction with the group was second to none. I would thoroughly recommend your company to others. Many thanks for such a great experience.
Clare, Dec 2013
Jane - would you pass on my thanks to your colleagues, Chris and Melissa, for the excellent wine tasting event held yesterday. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the session and it served as an excellent way to get everyone into the party mood!
Tim, Worsley Park Golf Club, Nov 2013
Everyone had a terrific time many thanks. Erik was very well received and kept everyone’s attention throughout the evening. Very positive feedback from all who attended - a very entertaining evening.
Andy, Oct 2013
It was an excellent evening thank you - everyone really enjoyed it and Helen was great again.
Francesca, Aug 2013
Hi Ian, we all really enjoyed Saturday evening - was really good fun!
Megan, Jul 2013
We all had a great time thank you and I have received good feedback from everyone that they really enjoyed Ian's enthusiasm and knowledge.
Many thanks for your help in arranging and organising the tasting, Tuttons was a good location – the food was tasty and the service was attentive. So thank you for the suggestion.
Thanks again, and hopefully do business with you in the future.
Liz, Jul 2013
We all had a great time - thank you! We enjoyed tasting all of the wines and found some that we preferred more than others!
Rob really made the wine tasting interesting as well as fun. He was very accommodating of our slightly late start and everybody said how personable he was and how much they had enjoyed it.
Overall, it was a great surprise for my husband, Jim. We would love to do it again in the future! Many thanks once again to you and particularly to Rob.
Chris, Jul 2013
Hi Jane - thanks for the message. It went really well and everyone loved it! Please thank Helen on all of our behalf.
Katharine, Jul 2013
Yes we had a great time thanks. Camilla was very nice and pitched it well. She was very good natured throughout and was very tolerant as we got a bit merry which is a skill in itself!! The party continued until 3am and I have only just recovered! Everyone said they really enjoyed it so thanks for making my husbands 40th memorable!
Neil, Jun 2013
Everyone had a fantastic night, Robert was great - those off us who had done an event with you guys before, learnt a bit more and much fun and drinking was had, many thanks for everything.
Gemma, Jun 2013
Wine tasting Saturday was great, Erik was lovely and everyone really enjoyed themselves!
Rebecca, Jun 2013
Hi Camilla, We just want to thank you for such a unique and educational evening! It worked so well as I wanted to get my husband's work colleagues around for dinner with a few friends so it was a great icebreaker. Everyone thought it was so well put together and everyone left a bit tipsy, (in cabs of course) but with some new friends and a whole knowledge of wine!! The games were a great idea and I'm so glad I did the chocolates and cheese as this really made an evening to remember!!
Debbie, Jun 2013
Erik, thank you for your email. I would like to tell you how much I enjoyed the wine tasting evening. I though it was interesting and informative, not forgetting your stories which were very entertaining.
I would definitely recommend you and your company in the future and hopefully organise something myself. Thank you once again it was enjoyed by all.
Julie, Jun 2013
Hello Jane, the evening was fantastic thank you, everyone really enjoyed themselves and Helen did exactly what I had hoped, it was fun and entertaining and useful tips were learnt. She also handled the rowdy crowed very well and kept us in control as much as was possible. Please thank Helen for a sterling job, I would definitely recommend her and your company to others.
Stephanie, May 2013
Hi Jane. Thank you for following up. We had a lovely evening and Simon was a great host! All the girls enjoyed, the food was great and the wine even better. Thanks again!
Alan, Apr 2013
Thank you very much for the wine tasting on Saturday hosted by Ian. We had a couple of hours of terrific fun, having our our taste buds educated, and a enjoying a very informative, nicely-pitched, informal presentation. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience - there were ten of us from a wide age range - it would even stand repeating! The timing was perfect as an aperitif before sitting down to dinner afterwards - with a couple of our newly-qualified 'Super Tasters' crowing over their previously-not-recognised capabilities!
Laura, Apr 2013
Chris Scott was superb, entertaining and knowledgeable. Makes the novice feel at ease. Well done!
Victoria, Mar 2013
We all had a great time – got some tips and tried some nice wines – we nearly all loved the Viogner. I would definitely recommend you again!
Graham, Mar 2013
Many thanks to Toni for the wine tasting on Friday. My mother was very pleased and everyone thought it was fantastic! I think they will be looking to organise another session!
Tricia, Mar 2013
Many thanks Simon. A most enjoyable & educational evening. I thought you did a great job controlling the room with charm & humour. Not easy given the wine, women & NOISE!!
Emma, Mar 2013
Thanks for your email, we had a great evening and everyone commented on what a great night it was and how entertaining and informative Simon. One of my friends is thinking about organising a night and requesting Simon!
Caroline, Mar 2013
My friends and I all had a really fabulous time on our wine tasting evening. It was lovely to do something a little different and great to learn something new in a very entertaining way. Even our non-drinker had a great time!
Chris, Jan 2013
It was a really good night. Camilla was brilliant. Not sure how she put up with us, the volume and conversation seemed to increase as the wine flowed. All my friends really enjoyed it and we will probably do another one. Anyway thanks for yours and Camilla's professional approach and organisation.
Bev & David, Dec 2012
The evening was fantastic thank you, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Simon pitched it absolutely perfectly and everyone felt part of the experience. Even my mum, who doesn't really drink much.
We have recommended your company already to a variety of friends and a couple of people who were at my event have said that they would like to do an evening for themselves in the future,
Absolutely brilliant. Thank you simon, so much.
Mike, Dec 2012
It went great. Wines were terrific - interesting selection and varied response which was perfect. Thank you very much for organising.
Chrissie, Dec 2012
Saturday went very well thank you, everyone very much enjoyed the tasting session. The chocolate and wine went so well together. Thank you!
Graham, Dec 2012
Thank you for your email - had a week off to recover and absorb the enormity of reaching 60 years old, lol. I would like to thank you, the company and especially Erik. What a marvellous job he did. Everybody found the day of Wine Tasting, very informative and enjoyable. It was interesting, educational and lots of Fun. We loved the competitive edge, and Erik kept our attention and interest all day. It was everything and more, that I had hoped for.
Gill, Nov 2012
Hi Jane, we all had a great time and thought you were terrific handling all challenges (dogs, children) with aplomb. We also thought you were very skilled at making the night inclusive for all. It will be a memory for my 50th celebrations. Thanks or should I say 'cheers!'
Karim, Nov 2012
Jane, Thank you very much. It was a great evening and everyone had a good time. The wines were good, and Simon was good with the group.
Jeff, Nov 2012
Thanks to all at Thirty Fifty. Everyone had a fantastic evening, which was not only informative but also extremely amusing. We would be happy to use you again.
Amy, Oct 2012
I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for such a great evening!! Everyone loved it! even the cider drinking farmers amongst us. Everyone was very impressed and the amount of information you taught us was brilliant! Thank you for fitting us in at short notice!
Colin, Oct 2012
The wine tasting was excellent thank you. We all had a fantastic evening and Simon was on great form. Thanks again!
Sara, Sep 2012
Thank you for a lovely time yesterday. We all found it very interesting and enjoyable. Thank you for sending over my ratings. It is quite convenient that I rated the cheapest wine the best! Many thanks once again. I will no doubt be recommending ThirtyFifty in the future.
Gabriella, Sep 2012
We all had a fabulous time and everyone's been raving about the wine tasting experience! We all learnt a lot, drank a lot and had a lovely night. Thank you so much - I will be highly recommending you guys.
NZICA member, Sep 2012
Thanks for a great night out at the wine tasting, lots of fun and good to get to know Chris a bit better!
Charlie, Sep 2012
That was a great night for all of us, thanks. Some of the feedback from the team: I thought Chris from 30/50 was entertaining and informative and helped set the fun atmosphere for the evening. I’ve been to a few wine tastings over the years. This was undoubtedly the funniest. Fab evening. Thanks!
Nick, Aug 2012
Everyone had a good time thank you & it was a fun night. Camilla was great - very knowledgable.
Lucy, Jul 2012
Our wine tasting was excellent, thanks very much. Highly enjoyed by all and Simon was great. Poor man, we kept him for 3 hours as we had so many questions about wine.
I'm hoping a group of us will get together to chip in for the champagne tasting in the near future, that was certainly the initial response.
Thanks again for all your help with organising this. I'd highly recommend your company (and have done to several colleagues who were intrigued with the idea.)
Brendan & Jane, Jun 2012
Wow Erik, what a fantastic evening we had on Friday. Thank you for making our evening truly memorable. All our guests commented on your knowledge, wisdom, great sense of humour and patience as we got more than a little bit tipsy. Everything Bren says about people from Neston obviously isn't true ;-). We all had a great time, learnt a great deal, and you can be sure 'Angel Farts' will feature in our future conversations and we intend to practice to perfect them. Thanks for joining us on our special evening.
Victoria, Jun 2012
We had a wonderful time at the wine tasting on the 29th June. Simon was fantastic - knowledgable, friendly and fun. Everyone commented how he really made the evening. Many thanks for such a great event. It was a resounding success, even amongst those who wouldn't necessarily choose wine as their tipple of choice!
Helen, Jun 2012
Thank you so much for organising such an amazing afternoon. Rob was so professional, knowledgable and fun to have at the event. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and we would all highly recommend ThirtyFifty. Thank you so much again!
Nicola, May 2012
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and Chris. The evening went without a hitch and everyone found Chris wonderfully engaging - We all actually learnt something about wine aswell as having a great time! The cheese was also highly rated - It was clear to all the quality of your supplier. A great night had by all!
Patrick, May 2012
Abbie, I’d like to pass on my thanks for your efforts on Wed evening, you did a wonderful job in all respects. I have had very positive feedback on the tasting, with all agreed it was informative, highly enjoyable and fittingly relaxed so that people could really interact with you and pick your brain.
Clare, May 2012
The girls and I had a very enjoyable evening last Friday, we all thought it was a great night. We not only got to sample some lovely wines, but we also learned quite a lot too.. Rob was a lovely gent, not phased by 10 women in the slightest...We will definitely be in touch should we wish do another wine tasting evening in the future.
Linda P, Apr 2012
A fantastic night was had by all – Abbie was great and so knowledgeable about her wines, we all learnt so much as well as having great fun. Would highly recommend!
Sam, Apr 2012
Please pass on our sincere thanks to Chris for a fantastic wine tasting on Tuesday night. Everyone loved it. Chris was so funny & entertaining. He was spot on and hit the right balance of education & fun. Thanks again!
Lizzie D, Mar 2012
Hi Sam, thank you for a great evening, everything was perfect on Saturday. It was a great night and everyone was raving about the tasting, just the right balance of information and fun.
Julia L, Mar 2012
A big thank you for making our evening a huge success. All our guests have said what a great time they had:- well organised, entertaining, informative and most of all good fun! I would have no hesitation in recommending you and booking with you again in future.
Alex K, Mar 2012
The wine tasting event organised by ThirtyFifty was fantastic. It was really entertaining, a combination of a classy event and a quiz night. Our guests were from different cultural and geographical background and they really enjoyed it, shared experience and knowledge about wine around the world. ThirtyFifty`s expert, Abbie, gave a well prepared, amazing presentation and deep knowledge about the wine tasted. Overall it was a wonderful event! Thank you!
Adam K, Feb 2012
Everyone had a great evening. As well as enjoying the range of beers, I think most of us picked up some new bits of knowledge too. Overall, it was a really nice mix of tasting, anecdotes and quizzes - can't think of a better way to spend a Friday!
Barry C, Jan 2012
Just a quick note to give my sincere thanks for the tasting organised at my home. My group of friends all seemed to enjoy themselves and some perhaps too much!! Particular thanks to Rob for putting up with some of the livelier guests who when a little merry seemed to think they knew more about wine than Rob - wrong on that score! Good organisation at short notice and excellent by Rob on the evening - sincere thanks again and would recommend your company and Rob to all.
Denise S, Dec 2011
Just to say we had a fantastic evening and everybody enjoyed it. Erik managed to get the right balance between theory and entertainment which suited everyone. The wines were great and I can guarantee there were a few sore heads the next day!
Louise E, Dec 2011
Yes all went well, Rob was a lovely man and a good time was had by all. In fact he said how nice it is to do it outside so we may well do that in the summer!
Sharon F, Nov 2011
The girls all loved it- thank you so much for organising. Camilla was fab and everyone had a great evening. I’m definitely going to try to organise a similar event for our clients soon.
Joanna, Nov 2011
Thanks, we enjoyed it and Rob did a really fine job. Everyone enjoyed the experience, banter and the wine so the evening was a great success.
Adam K, Nov 2011
Abbie, just wanted to say thanks again for running a great wine tasting evening yesterday at St Catherine's College. Everyone I spoke to really enjoyed it!
Julie G, Oct 2011
All went very well thank you. The beer tasting was much enjoyed and perfect for my boys!
Alison B, Oct 2011
Please pass on my thanks to Alya for all her help on Saturday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I'm sure learnt far more about wines in general.
Carol L, Sep 2011
Thanks so much, we had a really good night. Robert was excellent it was good fun but we all learnt lots too. We are still talking about it. I would definitely recommend the experience.
Emma P, Aug 2011
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team for arranging a fantastic and very memorable wine tasting session for our joint hen and stag do! Rob really was brilliant! He somehow managed to keep us all in check and make it a really fun and enjoyable few hours, whilst teaching us along the way. Everyone there commented on how good he was and a few people had done similar things before and said how much better Rob was than those they had encountered previously. He struck the perfect balance between professional and fun and is clearly very knowledgeable about wines - what a fantastic job he has! I will not hesitate to recommend your company and I hope we can find some excuse to use you again in the future. Thanks again and a very special thank you to Rob.
James F, Aug 2011
Thanks for getting in touch. Yes, it all went very well on Saturday thanks and I believe the tasting was enjoyed by all. Abbie pitched it very well and was very patient in waiting for us all to congregate!
Sheila L, Jul 2011
I am just writing to thank you for sending Abbie to put on such an interesting and informative wine tasting evening. Everyone has said how much they enjoyed it and how much they learnt as well. It was a very entertaining and relaxed evening which helped to celebrate Tony's 70th birthday - he certainly enjoyed it and it was something very different which gave a wonderful focus for the evening and provoked some interesting discussions and wild guesses!! It all added to the fun.
Sally S, Jul 2011
Dear Camilla, We just wanted to say a very big 'thank you' for the wine tasting evening at our house on 2nd July. The evening was a huge success, with everyone commenting how knowledagble you were! You made everyone feel at ease and we all felt that we learnt valuable information regarding our wine choices. An evening that we would recommend to all. Thanks again!
Siobhan D, May 2011
Thanks for your mail. Yes all went well on Saturday, we all had a lovely time and really enjoyed the whole experience. Camilla was fab. Thanks again go your help and i really hope i get an excuse to do another evening soon ;-)
Dan W, May 2011
Thank you and Abbie for putting on a first-class wine tasting evening for us on Wednesday. It was enjoyed by all involved and we are certainly considering doing another such event in the future.
Lynn, The Connectives, Dec 2010
We had a fantastic day - thank you so much. Liz and the team were really impressed with the session Erik ran – it was very informative and lots of fun. We were also impressed with the way he handled us all! Thanks again and we look forward to future sessions.
Emma B, Nov 2010
It was really wonderful thank you. Both educational, entertaining and pleasurable. It was a shame that more people couldn't make it as I know that everyone who did make it thoroughly enjoyed it. I will definitely recommend ThirtyFifty to friends and may well be sending some business your way shortly!
Ken, East Grinstead Wine Appreciation Society, Nov 2010
Hi Chris, Can I thank you again for a very informative and enjoyable evening. All the members I spoke to were delighted with the evening. You manage to bring something new and interesting to every session you give to us. You are certainly on our most-wanted speaker list for return visits.
Anna T, Oct 2010
Like the last private tasting session I had 2 years ago, once again I (and my mates) really enjoyed the wine tasting session held by Abbie on Saturday night. Abbie was very professional and it was much appreciated that she was flexible to starting the session a little later than planned due to 2 late comers. I thought Abbie gauged the audience and level of tasting experience well and manage to keep the session very entertaining for everyone. The wines were a good selection and I was impressed with how well the food pairing part worked with the wines selected. Thanks again for the no fuss organising and professionalism.
Jo McLean, May 2010
Jane - I just wanted to say a big thankyou again for helping make our weekend away the most memorable one we have ever had. Everyone really enjoyed the wine tasting, learning a lot from you whilst also having such fun. You were really relaxed and got everyone involved, and I'm sure we have converted one or two to drink wine now and the more experienced drinkers already to appreciate it more. The converted were really enjoying the wine, so much so we continued to drink plenty of it during dinner, they were both excellent quality wines, and we all therefore ended up with slightly sore heads in the morning.
Sue Harding, Mar 2010
The evening was great fun, very informative and Robert was charming. One of the girls had a hangover for 2 days!!!!! Success!!!!!
Gemma Frier, Feb 2010
All went well thankyou. It was very well pitched for the group and Robert did well to cope with some of the characters, all in his stride.
I will be sure to recommend to friends for future girly weekends, educational groups and hen-dos!
Sian Hobbs, Nov 2009
A well pitched wine tasting with good information about the wines-light hearted but informative. Everyone I have spoken to really enjoyed it and the recommendation on the cheeses etc was really helpful when we were organising it. Everyone felt that it was a very enjoyable way to spend the evening.
Lisbeth Wirth, Oct 2009
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for our tasting last night. We all had a lovely time and I am sure there are a few sore heads this morning !
Charlie Nicholson, Mar 2009
It was fantastic! Everyone really enjoyed themselves and my God, some of those Italian wines and the French vintage champagne were incredible. I'd definitely do this again and I'll be recommending it to friends.
Ron Howard, Feb 2009
Many thanks for coming to Hampstead Norreys and presenting the wine tasting on Saturday evening. We enjoyed ourselves and found the tasting fun and interesting.
Emma Oliver, Feb 2009
We all had a great time, thank you. I have had positive feedback from all attendees. I think you did a particularly good job at assessing the group and pitching the evening at an appropriate level.
Rosalind Anfilogoff, Nov 2008
The wine tasting went very well. We all felt you hit the right note between informative and entertaining and the afternoon was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
