Albany Events specialises in tailor-made wine tastings, events and wine experiences for a wide range of private and corporate clients. The company was set-up in 2010 by Victoria Aldwinckle and now runs a broad spectrum of events both in London and Kent.
Victoria is a knowledgeable and experienced wine expert having worked in the wine industry for the past 15 years in a variety of roles. Starting out in London Victoria then moved to Washington State, in north-west America, where she worked as an assistant wine-maker creating high-end, beautifully crafted wines for the demanding America market. On returning to England Victoria moved to The Wine Society hosting their nation-wide programme of tastings, talks and fine dining experiences.
Since moving to Kent to provide more space for her growing family, Victoria has focused on private and corporate events for regional and London-based clients, as well as working freelance for Hush Heath Winery near Marden, Kent.
Victoria holds the WSET® Diploma (with distinction) in Wines and Spirits qualification and is gearing up to study for the prestigious Master of Wine exams.
Albany Events aims to host wine events that are highly enjoyable but also intellectual and informative – a great balance between entertainment and education. The company has strong partnerships with a range of bespoke local catering companies to enable us to provide clients with mouthwatering food and wine experiences.
