Peak Wine is run by Ingrid Higham

In addition to the catered dinner parties we can also help you organise a wine tasting event at the holiday cottages.

Wine tasting tailored to suit your special event 

We offer wine tastings for private parties and corporate entertainment in a range of formats tailored to suit the occasion. If you have your own ideas or want a certain theme just get in touch and we can work with you to come up with your own bespoke tasting. It’s good to provide nibbles and/or cheese and biscuits to accompany the wine.

Our prices for tastings start at £18 per person and are subject to a minimum charge for 10 people. We confirm the booking with a £60 deposit, with the balance payable on the day of the tasting. If you're unsure what type of tasting you'd like, below are some of our tried and tested favourites – these will give you some ideas to get started! 

Some suggested wine tasting ideas are:

  • Introduction to Wine Tasting

A great starting point whether you want to learn the basics or add to your wine knowledge. Learn how to taste wine, how to spot quality and lots more! We taste a selection of 6 wines from around the world including whites and reds. You can include a port or even a Sparkler! We can include a wine challenge or quiz for the more the more competitive taster!

Prices from £18 per person

  • Champagne and Sparkling Wine Tasting

An absolutely fabulous tasting of Champagnes and top quality sparkling wines from around the world. Find out why Champagne is so expensive and whether you can actually tell the difference between real Champagne and quality fizz - is it worth paying the extra? You’ll taste 6-7 wines from around the world. You can even incorporate a Grand Cru Vintage.

Prices from £22 per person 

  • Themed Wine Tastings

Compare Old World to New World wines or inspire your guests by choosing a wine country or region of the world as a theme for your evening with matching food! Popular themes are our Italian Wine Tasting, Spanish Wine Tasting or Americas Tasting (California, Chile and Argentina). Choose Antipodeans wines from Australia and New Zealand or even a selection of English wines!

Prices from £18 per person 

  • Cheese and Wine Tasting

Cheese really is a great partner for both white wines, reds and even fizz! We've matched 6 wines with delicious continental and British cheeses with a selection of wines to show you how to pair them together. We bring crackers and grapes to complete the cheeseboard.

Prices from £22 per person 

  • Beer Tasting

Beer lovers will love the chance to sample some of the finest brews from our local award winning breweries. We taste 7-8 beers including traditional bitters, Indian pale ales, stouts, wheat beers, and premium lagers. We can also combine beer tasting with wine tasting with beers and wines of your choice.

Prices from £18 per person 

The Tastings can be adjusted to suit your requirements and a wine challenge and quiz can also be included.

Prices for tasting start at £18 per person and are subject to a minimum charge for 10 people.  A £60 deposit is required to confirm the booking with the balance payable on the day of the tasting.

How To Arrange A Wine Tasting

How To Book

  • Check the date with us for availability and provide approximate numbers – the minimum booking is for 10 people.
  • Make a provisional booking and we will hold the date for two weeks.
  • Let us know which tasting you have decided on and your location. We will then confirm the total cost (there may be an extra charge for us to travel to you).
  • Confirm the booking with a deposit of £60. The balance is payable on the day of the tasting.
  • If you cancel your booking within a month of the event, the deposit will be retained and used against future bookings.

How It Works

  • We will run the tasting at your chosen venue, arriving half an hour before to set up.
  • We will bring with us the wines, tasting glasses, spittoons and tasting notes.
  • The tasting will take approximately two hours. Plus an extra half hour to clear away.
  • It’s good to have nibbles and/or cheese to accompany the tasting. These can be provided by us at an extra cost.


  • Is the tasting for a special event
  • What is your budget
  • What types of wine you would like to taste
  • How many wines and the amount of alcohol/person (we usually taste 6-7 wines and allow a 50ml measure for each wine)
  • What is the location of the event and what type of venue
  • Will you be supplying your own nibbles/food for the event
  • Would you like a game or quiz included

Our clients say . . .

Ingrid and Chris, thank you so much for the wine tasting. It was pitched just right, so that it gave us the opportunity to learn a lot and have fun at the same time! I really enjoyed the Prosecco and chocolates tasting at the end.

The wine tasting was great. Chris and Ingrid were fab! The information they provided us with was informative and relevant. Really enjoyed the quiz.

Just to say a big thank you for making our pre wedding night special, all the family thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
