About Wine Savvy

Wine Savvy was set up by Jo Maclean in December 2011 to provide fun wine tasting events tailored to suit different groups of people and levels of experience.  For nights in with friends or a team social or client event at work, tasting and learning about different wines and foods is a great way to spend an evening.

Tastings are given by Jo, who has spent her career in the wine industry.  Jo has run a wine shop in Hong Kong, been a Wine Buyer for Oddbins and was the Head of Marketing for the Spanish Group Codorníu in the UK, one of the oldest sparkling wine producers in the world.

As well as many years of tasting wines, Jo has her Diploma from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust, is a member of the Institute of Wines and Spirits and judges at the International Wine Challenge each year.

Wine and Food

As food is such an important part of enjoying wine Wine Savvy places a lot of emphasis on food and wine matching and foods are shown with the wines at most of the tastings.  Most clients choose for Wine Savvy to provide the food pairings and these are all prepared by Jo who has a passion for food and cooking.  Wine Savvy has a food hygiene rating of 5/5 from The Food Standards Agency.
