"Geoff was wonderful kept a great relaxed atmosphere. We learnt lots but not in a pretentious environment. We laughed, drank and generally a great night out." (Helena Simmons on Trip Advisor May 2016)

If you want to be entertained and informed in a friendly atmosphere, then I am your wine mentor! Hopefully, you will enjoy the experience, gain knowledge – and come back for more!

From corporate team-building events to getting friends together at home for supper, I can provide any permutation of wine-tasting. You may want to gain a basic understanding of wine or you may know a little already and want to be challenged further.

I love wine ……don’t we all? I am passionate in communicating about the vast range, diversity, depth and tastes of wine to all who attend my tasting sessions. Approachable and informal in style, I believe I can appeal to everyone – regardless of experience and background.

If you leave inspired and wanting to know more……and laughing, of course….I have done my job!
