Wine and Dinner Tasting Events

Informal Tutored Tastings offer plenty of host-to-participant interaction and they work especially well for groups of 10 to 40 people. In a friendly, relaxed, and informal environment, your guests will enjoy a tasting of premium wines from around the world, as well as learning about wine tasting.

Can be run as a stand alone event or a Tutored Tasting can be a great idea to stimulate the taste buds before moving on to dinner.

Corks And Chopsticks

The Wine Experience

“Corks And Chopsticks”

Cantonese Food and Wine Matching Banquet

A popular alternative for corporate events, department nights out or for groups who enjoy food and wine.

Join Ian McNeill from The Wine Experience who will host a really unique culinary experience in an amazing setting. You will enjoy an evening of wines from around the world, taste good Cantonese food and learn about matching wines with Chinese food.

Enjoy the experience of a Cantonese Banquet in the private dining room of Edinburgh’s top Cantonese restaurant (in my opinion), China Town in Athol Place. We have designed a special banquet menu for this event. There will be 2 dishes per course except for the soup course. You will have a different glass of wine for each course, carefully selected to match the dishes on that course. Before each course, I will talk about the wine and how it will match the dishes.

For this private corks and chopsticks experience numbers are restricted to a maximum of 23.

You will enjoy a glass of wine with each course. Additional drinks can be purchased directly from the restaurant bar.

You may also also want to include a short wine tasting before dinner to sharpen up the taste buds and be a really fun start to the evening – ask for details.

I look forward to having a great evening with you.

You will be taught how to nose and taste wine like the experts and then the challenge begins. You will then put your new knowledge and skills into practice by moving between the various challenges to identify aromas, tastes and even food and wine matches.

Usually done in small teams with prizes for the winners. All done at a leisurely pace leaving plenty of time for networking with clients and colleagues.
