The award winning Clifton Wine School believes that wine is for everyone. Offering fun and entertaining evenings or day classes as well as private tastings for groups, such as hen parties or birthdays, and corporate events. The super keen can even take a qualification in wine. Ruth, the owner, has a Diploma from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) and is an approved WSET tutor. In short, she knows about wine and she loves to talk about it.

Complete beginners are just as welcome as anyone else.

The most popular private and corporate tastings are based around an interactive wine quiz. Teams compete to follow the clues that Ruth gives them to help them to guess which wine is which. In addition to this there is a little quiz. They leave having learned how to taste wine like a professional. 

There are many other tasting formats available, such as Gin tastings and Cheese and Wine Matching. Get in touch to find out more.

Whether your group is 6 people or 600 a wine tasting can be a wonderful event for team-building, getting to know people or simply just to have fun. Cheers!
