Private tastings

Private tastings can be run in the venue of your choice in London and the South East* and are tailored to suit the level of knowledge of the guests and your budget.  The evening can be run from your home or for larger groups tastings have been run in other venues such as village halls and restaurants.  You may simply be looking for a fun and different night in with friends or perhaps you would like to run a social event for a book club, a group of school parents or a hen or stag party.  Wine Savvy has catered for all these events in the past. There is a wide range of themes for your tasting evening; the wonderful world of Champagne, the wines of a particular country, Old World versus New World, the possibilities are endless.  Whatever you choose there will always be plenty of tips and advice with the chance to ask lots of questions about wine.  Tastings are given by Jo Maclean, who has worked with wine for 15 years, visit the About Wine Savvy page for more details about Jo and Wine Savvy.


Tastings start at £350 for a group of up to 12 people or £450 including some food pairings.  The foods are created to match the wines and are freshly prepared from high quality ingredients.  Glasses, cutlery and crockery are always provided, so no washing up for the host!  Tastings sheets are given to guests for note making and a sheet is provided at the end of the evening with wine details, alternative wine suggestions and food pairing ideas.  Visit the Sample Menus pages for examples of tastings.
