Thank you so much to you and your team for running a most successful Champagne Challenge for us last night. I have been inundated with emails and thank you notes today. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Please pass my thanks for your team, they did a great job!


The whole event ran incredibly smoothly and this was due to the professionalism and helpfulness of your staff. Your excellent host encouraged our guests to enter into the spirit of the evening and your team helped me to relax and enjoy the evening. And that was a feat in itself.


I would like to express my gratitude for what was a fantastic Interactive Cocktail event. The aim to get the new trainees to mix with existing staff was achieved and surpassed. Everyone had a fantastic time and enjoyed the event immensely. It was an evening that will be talked about for some time.


Many thanks for all of your assistance leading up to and on the night of our Blind Tasting Challenge event which helped to make it such a tremendous success. We have had very positive feedback from our clients who thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Merrill Lynch

This is the fifth event that Taste of the Vine has run for my client group. Each new event surpasses the last in overall product quality. Guests are continually impressed with the challenge element and the knowledge they gain in participating, whilst never being intimidated by any lack of personal knowledge.

Lend Lease

It was just what we needed to get to know each other. There were some very funny moments shared, which will have us giggling for ages.

I was immensely pleased with the event and was delighted to refer your details around the firm. In comparison to other wine tastings I have run and attended, I have to say it was in a different league.

A very successful evening. It exceeded all expectations and was very well received by everyone. (900 People)


A highly enjoyable and enlightening evening. Exceeded all expectations!

Wates Homes

Thank you for a wonderful event on Thursday. Hosting team events with a large number of people who do not know each other is always nerve-wracking; but from the moment the event started the whole group gelled beautifully. It is a great credit to you that both ‘professed’ wine buffs and complete novices had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. I will be recommending you to everyone I know.

Allied Zurich

A fabulous occasion, thank you very much!

I can only say that the whisky tasting event was a resounding success and your staff were friendly and very professional, we received a lot of positive feedback from the guests.

Brilliant afternoon, it exceeded my expectations. Good selection of ciders and perry, with worthwhile prizes. All in all couldn’t ask for a better service.

NYK Line

We have high expectations of a Taste of the Vine event and have again not been let down. Peter and Jonathan provided excellent service along with excellent knowledge which our guests appreciated. It was also great that they could change focus to be more European to suit our guests!

Capita Financial Group

Our wine tasting evening proved to be a real pull for our key decision makers and attracted some clients that we had not been able to entertain before. Their feedback has been really very positive and we will significantly recoup our investment - thank you for a thoroughly engaging and informative evening. Your hosting of the wine tasting was first class.


The wine tasting event proved a real draw to our post conference drinks and held the group for a lot longer than we might otherwise have hoped. This enabled plenty of networking opportunities for our sponsors, speakers & delegates and the evening was enjoyed by all.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful event last night. All the positive comments so far have mentioned what a great wine tasting experience it was. Personally, I think this was the best we have had. I have had a few staff comment today on the success of the event and all the feedback has been excellent and complimentary to you.
