Sip it hosts a range of fun, stylish and informative private wine tasting experiences to suit you and your event – whether that be a birthday, dinner party, hen party or a gathering with friends or family. We are a London based company, but can cover most areas in South England.
To make things simple we have four different experiences for you to choose from. We can then work closely with you and your occasion to create a bespoke wine list and, if you like, a special theme like the ones listed below.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A WINE TASTING

- A tasting journey through a selection of high quality wines. Learn to taste and to rate and find your preference to wine.
- Exciting, interactive and competitive team rounds throughout including blind wine tasting.
- A delicious matching food pairing where we will compare how the components in food affect the taste of our wine and learn why certain foods pair well with wine. You will never be lost with what wine to choose for your next dinner party.
