Tasting Evening at Arup Engineering & Consulting, Manchester

Arup asked us to provide a fun & light hearted social event, but with a touch of learning too.

Regular "get togethers" are used by the engineering consultants. Such events encourage shared experiences, improve communication and above all are fun!

In this instance the wine tasting was held at their own premises at Piccaddily Place Manchester. This was great because there is plenty of space for recreation and social interaction as you can see in our picture.

John was a great host with an exceptional depth of knowledge who made the whole experience fun. He came to our office to deliver the tasting and the whole thing was organised flawlessly. He talked through the wine well which meant we had an understanding of the smells and tastes to expect, and even bought foods for pairing with the wine ( or not to pair with the wine) which was a great piece of knowledge to take away from the tasting. The wide selection of wines included were all wines which are readily available allowing us all to pick up some quirky dinner party facts. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening, leaving the office a little merry. We would definitely recommend this event to everyone, whether corporate or personal. We will definitely be booking one of the other courses on offer in the future.

A Wine Tasting as part of a Day's Celebration

Mosquito Digital had every reason to celebrate. They marked their achievements (two very noteworthy industry awards) by hiring the fabulous King Street Townhouse venue in Manchester.

Northern Wine School was invited along to present a two hour tasting to add another fun and light hearted competitive element. The results of our friendly quiz showed that these creative folks attending really knew their stuff!

Thank you for providing a fantastic wine tasting workshop for our staff. It was the perfect way to celebrate being awarded Digital Agency of the Year! The team thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we all learnt a lot from your tour of the world's vineyards, hic! We're looking forward to impressing our friends with all our new knowledge! I'd highly recommend your corporate package to any company looking for a fun and informative team building event.

​We can provide customised tastings to suit your needs and budget.

​What about a themed event based on a country or wine region? Alternatively we can work with you on your own ideas.

At the wine tasting you'll try 6 wines, during a typical two hour session. Initially  we will show you how to taste wine like a professional. You can also enjoy some friendly competition and a quiz involving our aroma kits especially imported from France.

How Much Will It Cost?

Each event is unique and put together based around your needs and budget, so quotes will vary. However, our prices start from £30 per head at ​your premises or own prearranged venue, with a minimum charge for 10 people.

For an initial enquiry and no obligation quote, don't hesitate to contact us.
