Private Wine Tastings at Fourth & Church

We often get asked to host a private wine tasting for an individual table or small group.

Perfect for an alternative get together or celebration or just a fun way to learn a little more about our favourite pastime, wine, in a relaxed atmosphere.

If this is something that interests you and sounds like lots of fun then have a read through our suggestions below.

We have a really informal, chilled, approach to wine and our tasting sessions are all about our guests feeling relaxed and comfortable.

We will introduce you to some familiar styles of wine and some styles you may not have come across before. The team will talk about each wine to help you identify what you like to drink, how to find more of the same, and how to navigate some of the terminology surrounding the many types of Grape Juice!

Your  tasting will be hosted by one of the team, who will personally share their knowledge and experience. They will talk you through each wine while you taste, then leave you have a little chat amongst yourselves prior to the next taster.

Our tastings are open for groups of just 2 to 12 people. Options available are outlined below.

If you’d like more information or are interested in booking, please contact us using our contact form on the website or email Paul@FourthandChurch.co.uk

Private wine tasting (£30 per head for 2-4 people, £25 per head for 5-8 people)
If you are more than 8, we can accommodate your party of up to 12 in our private tasting room. At certain times of the week we can host a larger group in the restaurant (subject to timings and availability)

This is a privately hosted tasting for your group, from 2 to 12 people.(private simply means you have a host dedicated to just your group, It doesn’t mean you have the whole restaurant to yourselves unless in the private dining room downstairs)

One of our team will introduce you to some basics of wine and wine tasting and talk you through six wines, they will answer any wine-related questions that you may have throughout the tasting.

These tasting sessions are relaxed, fun and very informal, we can adapt the pace and information given to suit any level of wine knowledge, so don't worry about what you may or may not know about wine, its all about having some fun!.

We aim to keep our tastings interesting and a little different, the lineup of wines change weekly and the team all have there personal approach to hosting your session.

The price includes nibbles such as our selection of breads with olive oil and mixed olives.

You are very welcome (we encourage) you to take a look at our menu of small plates, charcuterie and cheese to add to your experience. The team will also be very happy to suggest some food matches with any of the wines that you are tasting.

The above tasting is a suggestion… if you’d like to do something different, we are really happy to arrange any sort of tastings to suit your requirement  and budget. Just get in touch.

Some Questions you may have

How many wines will I taste?
Six wines is the norm, with some tastings also including a glass of fizz on arrival.

What will I be tasting? Can I taste whatever I like?
We mix up the wines dependent on what we are tasting that week, a selection based on what people may already know, as well as a few surprises. If you have a particular idea in mind, please feel free to discuss with us and we can quote accordingly.

Do I need to pay a deposit?
We ask for debit/credit card details for security at the time of booking. We will only charge 50% of the tasting price should your party fail to turn up for the tasting without at least 48 hrs notice.

How long do tastings last?
They usually last around 2 hours however, If you have a deadline and need us to stick to a specific timing, just let us know.

Can I bring someone along who’s not tasting?
The charge for a tasting is priced as an experience and the educational aspect involved in addition to the actual wines being tasted.Therefore it is difficult  to have a tasting, particularly with a small group, with members of the group not participating.

How do I make a booking?                                                                                Please do so via our ‘Contact us’ page on the website or e mail Paul@fourthandchurch.co.uk. Advance notice will help us secure your desired date and timings. We do get extremely busy at weekends so us much notice will secure your date.

Why not buy a tasting as a gift?
We are very happy to sell a tasting  voucher with all the details to give to your friend.

Alternatively we can just write ‘wine tasting’ and a value and leave it for them to book at their convenience.
