One of South Africa’s most awarded boutique wine estates lies in a scenic valley, just an hour and a half from Cape Town, called Hemel-en-Aarde or Heaven-and-Earth. Framed by great fold mountains and breath-taking ocean views, it is one of the coolest wine-making regions in the Cape, with duplex soil structures and sun-facing slopes. The promise of the unique terroir is harnessed by winemaker Peter Finlayson in slow-ripened, flavour-rich wines of exceptional quality.

Tickets: £75 per person and include drinks reception, 4 Course Meal with wine and coffee, tea and petit four.
Rooms are available at the discounted rate of £150 for a large double room inclusive of bed and breakfast.
Full pre-payment required at point of booking and non-refundable.

Wedding Fairs

Royal Scot's Club, Edinburgh Thursday 8th March 2018, 6-9pm, Royal Scots Club, Abercombie Place, Edinburgh. We will have a table with some wines to try along with tables with various other wedding suppliers to give you plenty of ideas for your big day.

Private Wine Tastings

We can host private tasting events all over Scotland (although I have been as far as London in the deep South). For a standard tasting with up to 26 people, the cost is £391, with £15 a head beyond this. For a Champagne tasting with up to 26 people, we charge £575 with an additional £25 a head thereafter.

These prices include - all wine, glasses, tasting sheets & an experienced, expert tutor with a duration of around 1 1/2 hours. Aprox 1/3 of a glass of each wine will be poured per person. 8 good quality wines will be served with a variety of different themes / formats on offer (see some suggestions below.) The most popular format is a sparkling to start, followed by 4 whites & 3 reds. We can also organise bespoke tastings based on a specific event or particular area of interest.

VENUES

We are happy to come to your office or boardroom to do the event. We also routinely use several “third party” venues & restaurants around Edinburgh. Third party venues may incur a hire fee and are subject to availability. Maximum tasting numbers are only limited by the venue capacity. If numbers go above 70 then we would suggest more of a “wine fair” format rather than tutored event - we provide appropriate numbers of expert staff to pour & chat whatever your numbers. Travelling time & expenses for venues outwith Edinburgh will be charged at cost.

IDEAS FOR TASTING THEMES

Wines from around the World; Wine & Cheese Tasting (+ £5 per head for cheese); New World vs Old World; Unusual Grape varieties; Sauvignon Blanc alternatives; Six Nations Rugby (Wine, cider, beer & Whisky will be involved!); Wine Olympics; Champagnes vs Sparkling (£25 min. per head). You name it, we will try to do it! 

IDEAS FOR FORMATS

Straightforward - Tutor pours & talks through the wines. Informal & easy-going style.
Call My Wine Bluff - a fun competition to guess the right wines from their descriptions.
Blind Tasting – Guessing game for some, or all, of the wines or prices or countries or grape varieties, as easy as you fancy. Expert knowledge NOT required!
Fun Quiz – tasting with questions and a general wine knowledge quiz (with plenty clues!)
Whisky Tastings – let us lead you through the regional styles.
Beer Tastings - taste the finest of Scottish or World Ales from our range of 300!
