“Victoria – you admirably educated a group of 60 semi-accomplished wine connoisseurs from the City of London Insurance sector on the finer notes of Bordeaux wine over dinner.  Your selection of 8 wines to compliment a traditional French menu was a real delight, and while your pairings surprised some, they were met with resounding approval – especially when you explained your technical reasons for choosing the wines you did.  The blind tasting competition fooled a number of attendees. The evening was a resounding success, thanks to you, and it was most remarkable how you continued to hold the audience in the later stages of the evening!”

David Watson, Syndicate 2121 at Lloyd’s of London

“The ‘Rugby World Cup’ wine tasting went down really well and was much enjoyed by all.  Victoria organised the wines and the quiz element brilliantly, adding just the right amount of fun to an informative and entertaining evening.  Victoria’s professional knowledge shone through, as did her ability to handle the room and keep the guests attention! I have received many compliments on how good the evening was”.

“Thank you so much for a lovely day out last week. We had a brilliant time, and thoroughly enjoyed the foraging walk and wine tour. You and Mike are clearly knowledgeable about your wine making and wild food, and the passion with which you both convey this knowledge, was what made our day so great. Sociable, enlightening and tasty!”

“I had the best birthday dinner in years entirely down to Victoria plying us with a variety of carefully selected anonymous wines from all over the world, imparting some of her extensive knowledge and making the evening fun for a group of enthusiastic novices. She planned and executed the evening beautifully, and hopefully she will come back at the same time next year.”

Laura Bellhouse, private client.


“Victoria is a consummate professional whose events are run with style, care and attention to detail. My audience didn’t know quite what to expect of the evening and were all pleasantly surprised and genuinely interested by Victoria’s engaging repartee that was delivered in a faultless yet friendly way.

Her knowledge is vast and intricate – everyone went away having learned something and having had fun, yet also with affordable and accessible recommendations that made them feel they were privy to a quality bargain! I would definitely recommend her.”
