Birthday? Anniversary? Work social? Hen Party? Stag Group? Give yourself the VIP treatment with our Private Wine Tasting experience!

We are not currently running any events in Oxford or Cheltenham but all our other Wine Schools offer a wide variety of Wine Tasting experiences throughout the year.

Due to retirement of present owner we are also interested in hearing from suitably qualified and experienced candidates who are interested in full-time opportunities in wine education in Oxford and surrounding region. More details here.......

We can come to you or we can arrange a private room for your group to eat in privacy afterwards either in a restaurant, hotel or Oxford University college. 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!

Recent Hen Party review: "Nick was a fab host…and did a very entertaining fizz tasting for my sister's hen do at St Peter's college in Oxford…very interactive with a quiz and a test of our aroma skills…loved the sabreing of a bottle - there are now a few of us who are after the perfect sabre so we can have a go too!!" (Read review on Tripadvisor here).

We will sample at least 6 different quality wines and compare them side by side and you can also include Champagne. 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 entertainment and interest.

We can also run themed evenings such as Old World vs New World, Cheese & Wine, Australia vs New Zealand, Chocolate & Wine (or anything else you might like to suggest).

Recent Private Party review: "Nick organised an excellent wine tasting session on the theme of Old World vs. New World wines. He selected some superb and diverse wines and was extremely knowledgeable, courteous and flexible…my guests and I really enjoyed the session…and I would heartily recommend Nick and the Oxford Chelt Wine School to everyone keen to learn more about wines." (Philip M. February 2015)
