“I can’t thank Alison enough for last night! My friends and I had an amazing evening of wine tasting with paired nibbles – all from the comfort of my own home! The wines Alison chose for us (based on wines I had told her I liked which was great as it added a personal touch to the night) were all gorgeous. We played games which made it loads of fun and different from any wine tasting I’ve done before! Alison is so knowledgable and it really shows how passionate she is about what she does! I’d highly recommend her for anyone looking to do something a bit different! I’ll definitely be buying my wine from The Bubbly Wine Company in the future!”

Sam – Private Event, Heaton Moor – January 18

“Fantastic night, really fun and informative. Thank you – looking forward to the next one”

Deborah – Wine Club, Heald Green – November 17

“Thank you Alison for my wines which were delivered by hand with all lovely labels about each individual wine, so far have enjoyed them all so spoilt for choice, Alison is so knowledgeable I could listen all night to her well it is my favourite subject!”

Lynn – Wine Lover, Hazel Grove – September 2017

“I’d like to recommend the fabulous Alison Calder from The Bubbly Wine Company who again just offers the best value and service around for wines and fizz! I’m having a party tomorrow night and wanted to keep the budget sensible on the fizz front as it’s a BBQ so lots of eating and drinking! I asked her advice for a reasonably priced quaffable pink fizz, she recommend this little beauty AND dropped it off for me too! If you drink wine I urge you to try Alison instead of buying from a supermarket. She’s competitively priced, incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and approachable and so friendly! And she drops it off locally, perfect!!! So even if it’s raining tomorrow night, we got the booze sorted”

Penny – Wine Lover, Cheadle – August 2017

“Thank you Alison for having been extremely thorough and attentive when I made a special request for some wines on a ‘silver’ theme (name/packaging, not contents!) for a Silver Wedding gift. I also ordered a mixed case for my Dad and Alison took the time to add a tag to each bottle with a description of the wine, which we really enjoyed browsing. I’d love to have Alison round to host a wine tasting evening, just need to find the right moment! Highly recommended, thanks Alison for doing a lovely job!”

Jo – Wine Lover, Poynton – June 17

“I ordered wine from Alison and live out of the area at the moment. We had some delivery issues which weren’t Alison’s fault but she did everything she could to fix the problem and added a little extra treat too. Ladies, if you like your wine then you can’t go wrong, fantastic service.”

Chris – Online Wine Shop, Northampton – June 17

“I love getting my wine delivered…. I leave Alison to choose, which is always spot on…it feels like a real treat. Can’t wait to try one of your events. Thanks for all the thought you put into it Alison”.

Anglea – Wine Lover, Cheadle – May 17

“I’ve recently developed a taste for Bottega Rose and I’d left it a bit last minute last Friday to stock up before a dinner party… the fabulous Alison came to my rescue and hand delivered two enormous bottles of the pink fizz an hour later, much to my utter delight! Service like that you can only get from a local business and I’m so grateful to her for helping me at such short notice. She’s so knowledgeable about wine and I love her approach to it, her wine tasting evenings making great wines accessible instead of being stuck with whatever the supermarkets chuck out! Thanks again Alison and I’ll never buy another bottle of plonk from a supermarket again when I have you around the corner”

Penny – Online Wine Shop, Cheadle – May 17

“We went to a wine tasting event at the Galley last night. Alison is very knowledgeable and lovely. We all enjoyed the evening and at £20 for 8 different wines great value!””

Sue – Wines of Languedoc Roussillon @ The Galley Deli, Cheadle – May 17

“We recently took my parents in law to one of The Bubbly Wine Company’s ticketed events at Café 31 Poynton – Australia vs New Zealand. It was a fantastic night and we all enjoyed it a lot. Alison who owns the company is so knowledgeable about the wines that she “presents” and makes the evenings really interesting. It was a great way to spend a few hours on a Friday night… thank you Alison”

Caroline – Australia v’s New Zealand @ Café 31, Poynton – April 17

“Would like to recommend Alison Calder and The Bubbly Wine Company for a fantastic private wine tasting event we held for my birthday last weekend. It was a fabulous evening and we all had such a great, fun time. Highly recommended for all ages (of drinking age of course). We also buy our wine from Alison who can source some fabulous wines taking into account your likes”

Julie – Private Event, Bramhall – February 17

“Before Christmas, I ordered a small number of bottles of wine on Alison’s online store… I was looking for something a bit different but didn’t want to pay extortionate amounts. Having been to a fabulous tasting event earlier this year, I knew that Alison had great taste in the wine she stocked and at affordable prices. The icing on the cake was that even though I only ordered a very small number of bottles, they were delivered, free of charge by Alison personally! The wine was a huge hit with all recipients and I will definitely be ordering more very soon! Thanks Alison”

Sarah – Online Wine Shop – Jan 16

“I ordered two bottles of prosecco for £10 and they were delivered to my work by a lovely lady. I then needed three further bottles of wine, all different varieties and I don’t drink wine so I had no idea! I messaged Alison, and she hand picked me three different bottles to suit my budget. She really knows her stuff! She really helped me as I really had no clue where to even start. If you’re looking for drinks for Christmas or presents! Look no further!! Thankyou Alison”

Emily- Online Wine Shop – December 16

“Alison is amazing and will always order our wine through her now. Every recommendation has been spot on”

Julie – Online Wine Shop – December 16

“Love Alison from The Bubbly Wine Company, nothing is too much trouble and always spot on with recommendations.. just been texting her now re some Christmas gifts and she’s always there to help out … Can’t wait to go to some of her events next year and book some more private events in”

Caroline – Online Wine Shop, Hazel Grove – December 16

“Alison has just launched her own wine selling service as well as doing wine tasting events. I told her what types of wines my Hubby likes and she matched up some lovely wines for him. I also love her rose wine that she suggested I try. Am now going to be a regular wine customer of hers. She has some great choices x”

Julie – Online Wine Shop – December 16

“I’d love to recommend (for the second time in as many months) Alison of The Bubbly Wine Company This time, not for her wine tasting, amazing as it was (we’ve already booked in for our second) but for another service she offers. The Bubbly Wine Company…Shop! Every year my husband and I purchase Wine, Champagne and Prosecco from a well know retailer for his employees. It’s a time consuming and complicated job when you’re not a connoisseur (for the amount I drink I should be)… and have limited knowledge on grapes, countries, vintage etc This year we decided to pass the job to Alison. We discussed who we were buying for, what price range we were looking at (complicated when your buying over 100 bottles of wine, at varying budgets and for different tastes). We were happy to let Alison do all the work and come back to us with recommendations, which she did. This lady really knows her stuff. We loved all her choices and the attention to detail. She had really listened, knew her stuff and knew what to deliver. The hand written labels describing the wine, grape and style along with some food pairings was also a beautiful finishing touch. Thank you Alison my new BFF”

Katie – Wine Lover – December 16

“Alison did a private wine tasting event at our friends house for her birthday. Great fun and informative night and get to try lots of wines which I wouldn’t have chosen before. Also great as you can order the wines you like best. Booking for my birthday now”

Fran – Wines of the Rhone @ The Galley Deli, Cheadle – September 16

“To celebrate my father in laws 70th birthday we wanted to do something a little different and as my mother in law has limited mobility it needed to be something we could do at home. I came across Alison on Facebook and got in touch with her to chat about a wine tasting event. Alison was quick to reply and followed her message to me up with an informative phone call to discuss our options. From the moment we booked our evening in Alison was in regular contact discussing the plan for the evening, wines and a couple of fabulous party games. She even organised our canapés and Cheese board for the evening to make sure they complimented the wines she had selected for us. The evening was a complete success, there was even the option to purchase the wines we had tried. Alison was very informative, organised and prepared, knew her stuff, friendly, relaxed and not at all pushy when it came to purchasing any wines at the end of the evening. Everyone enjoyed the games and sampling the wine and I well I’ve already booked in our next wine tasting evening already. What’s not to love about a girl that knows her wine. Highly recommend for a fabulous and fun filled evening”
