Taste of the Vine

Live and online tasting events   •   24 years, 4130 events, 49 countries


ONLINE: We have tailored many of our formats to suit an online environment. Please see the Cheese and Wine Masterclass and Challenge for more.

LIVE: All of the formats can be staged as a seated show or a standing reception and the level of interaction can also be tailored. For example you may require the activity to be a part of an event rather than the main feature.

Taste of the Vine formats have been crafted from a deep base of subject knowledge. However, unlike many tasting based events, they are not lectures, sales pitches or guessing games reliant on guests' prior knowledge. They are a blend of tasting, interactive theatre, comedy and skill development.
