Would you like to do something special for a birthday or do you need a good excuse to get a group of friends round one night?

If so let us come to you laden with beautiful wines for an evening of Wine Tasting

Do you love wine and want to learn more about it in the comfort of your own home?

Our private wine tastings are put together on a bespoke basis, working around your tastes and preferences to create an event tailored to you. When planning your event we’ll discuss the style of wines you like as well as your budget to find the perfect wines for your event. Whether you’d like to stick to White or Red wine, or would like to broaden your knowledge with the inclusion of Dessert and Rose wines, we’ll create a wine tasting that you’ll love.

While we pride ourselves on our wine knowledge all our private wine tastings are designed to be fun, informative and engaging. All our private wine tastings are carried out by Alison Calder, owner of The Bubbly Wine Company, who has over 15 years’ experience in the wine industry. She’ll talk you through each of the wines and show you how to taste wine like a professional.

All our private wine tastings can be tailored to your exact requirements and are carried out in your home. We’re happy to travel within a couple of hours of our base in Cheshire and have provided tastings to customers throughout Manchester, Staffordshire, Yorkshire and Merseyside. From red wine tasting to white and sparkling wines, indulge in some fantastic wines and let Alison take you on a journey of discovery where you can hone your palette while having fun.

We’re happy to include a few wine related games at the start of your wine tasting to help get everyone involved so just let us know what you want. As well as games we’re also able to arrange food for your evening and we work with a local Cheshire based deli to provide canapés chosen to match your wine selection. Alternatively we’d be happy to suggest some nibbles for you to provide which will help us demonstrate the principles of food and wine matching.

Take a look at our packages below:

We generally hold our wine experiences and private wine tastings in our client’s homes and can work with whatever space you have available. Alternatively, we’d be happy to find a venue for your tasting and can provide a number of suitable options in Cheshire, Manchester, Yorkshire and Staffordshire. Tastings are available for a minimum of 10 people and we’d be happy to arrange venue hire for you. We are happy to run tastings for numbers smaller than 10 although we do still have to charge for 10 as a minimum (but of course the extra wine is shared out).

an-introduction-to-wine

This package is where we can really get into the basics of wine tasting. We taste through 6 wines including a glass of Sparkling Wine to begin, tell you all about the wines, their country of origin, the grape varieties, how to taste them like a professional, whether a cork or screwcap is better and lots more. This session is fun and light-hearted and we play a few games (if you wish) to get everyone involved. This tasting lasts approximately 2.5 hours.

journey

This is our most popular package. It includes all of the features of the £25 package but we taste through 8 wines instead of 6. The extra wines allow us to talk in a little more detail about the differences between the wines and what makes the wines taste the way they do. This is perfect for groups that like lots of different styles of wine or for people who feel they are stuck in a rut with their wine choices and want to experiment that little bit more. This tasting lasts approximately 3 hours.
