At The Wine Ed Co, we offer wine tasting in Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas – with a difference. Firstly, since we are not wine merchants there is no pressure to buy the wines; our focus is entirely on hosting a great wine tasting for you and your clients. Secondly, we aim to remove any preconceptions associated with wine, including snobbiness and pretension, and work to expand your wine language and confidence. Our wine tasting events normally last somewhere between 2 – 3 hours and if you’d like to learn more about wine in an informed but informal environment you can do so in one of two ways.
Attend an existing event
The first would be to attend one of our existing wine events that we hold in Hertfordshire and the surrounding counties, you can check our upcoming events here. These events normally last between 2 – 3 hours and are held at a variety of venues including but not limited to: The Lemon Tree in Bishops Stortford, The White Hart Hotel in Welwyn, Crockers Chef’s Table in Berkhamsted and The Bull in Watton at Stone. Typically these tastings will have a theme and involve tasting between 5 – 8 wines using our bespoke wine tasting sheets.
Host your own event
The second option would be to host a private wine tasting for your friends, family or even your business. For these wine tastings, we charge a flat fee for our time plus the cost of the wine. Since no two events are the same the cost of the wine can vary, however as a general rule we recommend serving between five and eight wines per event. However, most importantly, we are happy to create a bespoke quote for you depending on your budget and the type of event you’d like to host. Please contact us to enquire about availability & a more detailed quote.
