Wine Tastings

Let Brett, the Wine Maestro entertain you

  • Private Wine Tastings – in your home or office
  • Wine Tastings for Clubs and Societies
  • Corporate Wine Events
  • Charity Evenings

As a member of the Association of Wine Educators and a recommended tutor for the Wine and Spirit Education Trust, Brett is eminently qualified to run tastings, seminars and wine courses. He has a relaxed, informative approach to wine tasting for both formal and informal occasions.

He has a relaxed, informative approach to wine tasting for both formal and informal occasions. Drawing on his visits to vineyards and wineries all over Europe and the New World he can talk in detail about wine and the personalities of those involved in producing it.

Recent examples include corporate events, such as the grand opening of a Swedish bank’s operation, a tasting to follow a seminar run by a solicitors’ practice (wet follows dry), a wine quiz after a budget presentation by a firm of insolvency practitioners and a Vintage Champagne tasting to accompany the launch of the new Lexus model.

Brett has organised tastings at fundraising events for charities, schools, colleges, village halls, twinning associations, even political parties! And he delights in presenting formal wine tastings to wine clubs and societies.

On a smaller scale Brett is happy to add an extra dimension to a private dinner party, making a selection of wines to suit the food and talking about them as the meal unfolds. This can for any number and really benefits from the informal, relaxed approach.

A structured tasting with accompanying explanations and anecdotes will enhance any formal or informal occasion where wine lovers gather.

Your own Private Wine Tasting

Here’s an idea:

Let me help you organise a wine tasting event in the privacy and comfort of your own home as a prelude to dinner or, say, a weekend lunch.

  • Your guests will be welcomed with a glass of fizz
  • I will then present six wines for tasting.
  • The event would last about 1½ hours, and I will supply all the wines and tasting glasses as well as tasting notes.
  • For a maximum number of 15 people, the total cost would depend on the selected wines and the location.
  • I also organise tastings for larger groups, such as businesses, clubs and societies.

“It is hard to believe that it is nearly one week on from our wine tasting!  Comments received from my guests include ‘splendid evening’, ‘a really unusual event in excellent surroundings with good company’, ‘great location and good company’ and ‘novel idea and venue’. I  think these comments sum up how much we all enjoyed ourselves and I would like to thank you again for an excellent evening”.
