We love hosting Corporate Events in the City of London, Canary Wharf, Hoxton and all of East London. Our customers book for a variety of reasons: Client Networking/Entertainment, Team Reward & Recognition, Team building, Christmas events, and bespoke events tailored to meet your requirements or just for fun!
Venue: we can host at your offices, at a venue of your choice or help find the venue that works best for you and your budget.
Costs: always a tricky one to define but often determined by the costs of the venue, plus the number of people at the event, the chosen theme, whether food is included. We will work within your budget, but please do get in touch so we can chat through what you're looking for.
Theme: of course, the theme of your event is entirely up to you, here’s some suggestions (for any of these we can add a quiz element with prizes for the winners):
- Classic wine tasting
- Wines from a specific country, or a specific style - "just, red, red wine"
- Gin Tasting
- Whiskey Tasting
- Rum Tasting
- Cheese and wine pairing
- English wines
- Sparkling wines and/or Champagnes
- "The Great British Taste Off"....yes we stole that catchy title; English vs European wines
- “Posh vs Plonk”…can you tell the posh wine based on current market price?
Experiences: Become a Wine Judge for the Evening
We’ll go through how to taste wine like a pro, how to assess quality – we’ll taste x6 different wines, then, all you have to do is tell us which wines are better and what the RRP is.
Finally we’ll see if you have what it takes to work in the World of Wine – you need to write a back label for the last wine and come up with a name for it:
“Salmon's Revenge" - “every good wine has a story to tell and this one smacks you in the face like a wet fish, after battling to land it for an hour. A pinkish colour, with streams of bubbles running through it. A good nose on the wine..sniffs of strawberry bon bons and raspberry shoe laces. On the tongue massive mouth watering acidity, hints of just rainy damp soils and the inside of well worn wellington boots. Ideal for kicking back, in front of a roaring fire"
Hosts: we are all WSET professionally trained wine tutors with experience of running events for 10 - 100+ people. We do appreciate that some of the time, we need to just let you network and socialise, rather than tutor the event.
Cheese: we work very closely with Cheese at Leadenhall Market, using their cheese expertise and knowledge for our events. Sue Cloke, the owner of Cheese and also a regular judge at The World Cheese Awards, would be happy to co-host at your event if you chose Cheese and Wine Pairing.
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your hard work for our event yesterday. We've had some lovely feedback from the team and everyone who took part in the sessions. Thanks again! All your help is massively appreciated!" July 2019
"Thank you so much for the information and your time last Thursday, I thoroughly enjoyed it and have had great feedback from those who came, and regrettable faces from those that didn’t make it after hearing about it. I have already recommended you to two people for future events they are thinking of! Great contact and customer service. " May 2019
"Our experience with the East London wine school was unforgettable. The tasting was great. Very casual but informative and so many fun facts and things we didn't know, even after being to tastings in the past. With a group of 26 people, Sam was very accommodating and the booking experience was stress-free as well. Thanks so much, I'm sure we will be back!" Jan 2019
"Thank you so much East London Wine School for your kind generosity and being such a lovely brand to work with. This money means so much to Macmillan as it means we can continue to support even more people with cancer live life as fully as they can" Macmillan Sept 2018

"It was a fabulous evening, and the feedback about you was uniformly excellent. Can we book you again next year?" Law Firm in City of London Dec 2017
“Thanks very much for the evening, feedback has been very positive and was clearly enjoyed by everyone. You were also mentioned individually as an excellent presenter which I hope also makes it worthwhile from your point of view. We will certainly remember you for any future events we may have and hopefully our guests will also think of you should they wish to do something similar. Many thanks - a resounding success. Phil Roberts, Corporate Team, Zurich Insurance.
“Thanks for last night we all had a fantastic time. I know everyone really enjoyed it. The next day when we took everyone to lunch they were all testing their new found skills with the wine !”
