We also run professionally organised wine events all over Surrey they are tailored to meet the demands of business and private clients.
We have run many successful corporate events for companies, both large and small, and our packages can be tailored to meet a wide variety of client requirements and to suit most budgets. Companies have used us for diverse events, such as:
- Client Entertainment
- Staff Team Reward/Entertainment
- Business Seminars/Conferences (usually prior to dinner!)
Wine tasting events are a fun and increasingly popular way to foster team-building or entertain clients, creating a relaxed atmosphere and an activity for all the guests to enjoy. The wine tasting can also act as an icebreaker as clients & colleagues get to know each other - plus the wine is guaranteed to keep the evening flowing!
We can come to you or we can arrange a private room for your group to eat in privacy afterwards either in a local restaurant or hotel. You will feel truly pampered as you experience a fun wine tasting followed by a delicious meal.
Our 'Whose Wine is it Anyway?' game is a great way to learn more about wine. It's a proven format involving a fun quiz with lots of carefully-picked clues and helpful tips from your wine host to allow novices as much chance of winning as seasoned wine drinkers!
Surrey Wine School ran a fun wine tasting challenge for The James Walker group in November 2014 at Wooton House Hotel in Dorking
'Thank you very much for a really great fun evening - we had a superb time. We would definitely recommend using Surrey Wine School and hope to be able to do so again ourselves in the future'. Mandie James Walker Group
Surrey Wine School found a venue and hosted the wine tasting for Gartner UK in October 2014
'Thanks for an excellent evening. The team had some doubts when I described the event as “competitive wine tasting” but as you saw and heard we had a great fun filled evening. It was the perfect start to what turned into a big night.
Your engaging facilitation and extensive knowledge of wine went along way to making the evening fun and educational....only downside was that you let the women win!
Thanks also to Simon for filling the glasses with such aplomb. Jonathan
Surrey Wine School hosted a private event with World wide beer company SAB Miller in September 2014 they said
I just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank You’ for the wine tasting you hosted for us last night.
The guys have said what a good idea it was and how much they enjoyed it; the team quiz idea was a good stance on the traditional wine tasting event.
Thank you so much to you for the fun evening and for coming out to the venue. Natasha
“Thanks very much for the evening, feedback has been very positive and was clearly enjoyed by everyone. You were also mentioned individually as an excellent presenter which I hope also makes it worthwhile from your point of view. We will certainly remember you for any future events we may have and hopefully our guests will also think of you should they wish to do something similar. Many thanks - a resounding success. March 2013 Phil Roberts, Corporate Team, Zurich Insurance.
“Thanks for last night we all had a fantastic time. I know everyone really enjoyed it. The next day when we took everyone to lunch they were all testing their new found skills with the wine !” Toyota July 2013

We will sample at least 6 different quality wines and compare them side by side and you can also include Champagne as an option. 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 phial kits, a box of wine-related aromas that are a uniquely inventive test of your sensory skills in a way that provides great entertainment, fun, and an element of competition.
You can choose from a number of our most popular options including
- Standard Wine Tasting
- Champagne/Sparkling Wine Tasting
- Cheese & Wine Pairing

All of these Tastings can also be run as Wine Quizzes - your wine host will present a series of wines to deduce the identity of – this provides a focus for the guests and ample opportunity to collaborate and interact. For each wine the guests will receive helpful and objective coaching from the wine host enabling them to have a good chance at guessing the wine.
Our wine tastings 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.
