We've hosted hundreds of private wine tastings all over the UK, and pride ourselves in providing fun, unstuffy events suitable for anyone looking to have a great time in the company of good friends and good wine!

Private Wine, Gin or Prosecco tasting events can be hosted at your home or at a location of your choice - we can recommend local venues to suit any party size or budget. We can also organise, if required, venues that include dinner cooked by top local chefs.

Give yourself the VIP treatment with our Private Wine Tasting experience! Or do you love Prosecco? We can offer an indulgent tasting of some delicious traditional varieties, guaranteed to please any fizz lover! Or are you a lover of Gin?  With a focus on local Manchester Distilleries, this is a great way to learn more about this wonderful drink.

We always keep the emphasis on having fun in a relaxed social environment - if you learn a bit more about wine in the process, thats an added bonus! You will definitely acquire new wine-tasting skills and perhaps try something you never thought that you would like at the same time!

We are the UKs leading provider of wine tastings - just see what some of our customers think on

We usually advise a minimum party size of 10-12 for cost reasons. We can offer advice on themes and wines if you wish, or source wines to suit your own preference. Prices vary depending upon location, numbers, and of course the type of wine, but start from as little as £25 per head.

You will sample at least 6 different quality wines and compare them side by side and you can also include Champagne. We always include a rapid introductory session on how to taste wine – explained in a no-nonsense practical way - and we can introduce our aroma recognition kits and challenge you to recognise different wine aromas, great entertainment and is guaranteed to 'break the ice'.

The 'Blind Tasting Challenge' is our most popular event and is very interactive, ensuring all guests are involved whatever their experience of wine. Your wine host will present a series of wines and using some tasting notes (provided by us) the aim of the game is to guess which wine is which. Of course we shall be there to offer hints and tips along the way, so you will not have to go it alone.

If you love fizz and are looking to try some Prosecco tasting in Manchester, we can spend a fizz-filled 2 hours tasting 6 different premium Prosecco styles. Perfect for a Hen party, birthday celebration or just for fun. We use a specialist Italian importer, so the Proseccos are of a far superior quality to the usual supermarket brands we are all familiar with. With lots of popping corks we will taste delicate fruit flavours, try Spumante (lots of bubbles) through to Frizzante (slightly sparkling) and at various sweetness levels. There is even a pink fizz too!

Our Wine, Gin and Prosecco tastings in Manchester are entertaining and good fun, pitched at a level that ensures all the guests learn something new about wine and, most importantly, have a great time doing so.
