Something to celebrate?

Nobody's famous last words were,  "I wish I'd spent more time at the office!"  On the contrary, what we remember most, and look forward to with pleasurable anticipation, is meeting up with friends and family and celebrating; 

Have you ever thought of getting a few friends together and arranging a private tutored wine tasting?  

It's an ideal way to celebrate a special event with friends and family in the comfort of your own home or holiday cottage.  It's also ideal for the 'thinking womens' "Hen Party".

It also makes the perfect birthday, retirement or anniversary present. In particular, it would be an excellent wedding present for those special people in your life!

Usually. after the selection of a suitable theme I put together an array of premium quality wines,  covering a whole spectrum of tastes and flavours; one bottle of each wine is sufficient for up to 12 people.  The all inclusive price for a two to three hour tutored wine tasting, including 8 wines (one of which is a sparkling wine) and tasting sheets is £275.00 (I also include a  home-made French food speciality "Tarte Flambee" to match one of the wines.  For a group of more than 12 people, and up to 24 people. £375.00 

Special discount of £20.00 for daytime tastings ending before 5-30pm

 Special  discount of £20.00 for tastings in north Cumbria. (Alston, Appleby, Brampton, Carlisle, and Penrith localities) .
