Can I choose the wines?
Yes of course. If the wines you choose stretch the standard or prestige budgets I will only charge the difference in cost price of the wine.
What areas do you cover?
I am based near Petersfield so routinely cover East Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey but I am happy to travel further afield provided expenses are covered. Plus I can now offer virtual tastings through Unique Wine Safaris
What sort of themes do you suggest?
Quality in wine - tasting similar wines across the quality spectrum
Discovering a variety - for example the various shades of Chardonnay
Exploring wines of a country or a region, such as California
Flavours in wine - can you really detect blackcurrant in Cabernet and Gooseberry in Sauvignon? This is an especially fun thing for an evening or afternoon with friends.
