During this period of lock-down, we are taking out wine tasting events virtual. Having successfully completed private events in the past few weeks, we are now offering you the opportunity to hold your own private event for clients or for your team.
This is a great way to get together virtually and do something fun! At the moment we are restricted to delivering the tasting packs by hand, so would be able to facilitate free delivery to all attendants within a 15-mile radius of the shop (we are in the process of working out a way to post the boxes and will update when we have a solution)
Wine Tasting Events
Fancy holding your own private wine tasting event? Here at Tasting House we have a fantastic space located on our first floor which is perfect for entertaining clients or hosting a team-building event. Our passion for wine is infectious and through one of our wine tastings, your team or customers will learn more about the subject we love in a fun and informal way.
We are more than happy to suggest an event for you, such as our extremely popular “Mystery Quiz Tasting” or, alternatively, tell us what you have in mind and we’ll build a tasting around your requirements. To keep things simple, we have 3 levels of tasting all based around 6 wines with the all-important charcuterie buffet served at the halfway point in the evening.
Great quality wine and a really fun introduction to the subject. We keep it light, relaxed yet informative.
Here we take a step up in terms of wine quality into a more premium bracket. This package allows us to explore further, countries and regions beyond the entry package.
Our luxury package is aimed at customers who really want to spoil their clients or team. It allows us to show in greater detail, wines that occupies the upper end of the market.
We have a maximum capacity of 30 people here at Tasting House and a minimum requirement of 10 people. We are of course happy to come to you should your location be in central Reading! To allow us to deal further with your inquiry, please fill out the form below and send back to us. We will then check availability for you, gather more information and finally get you booked in. In order to secure the booking, we ask for a 25% to be paid in advance. This will be based upon the package you choose and the anticipated numbers you have. The final balance will then be payable on the evening of the event (once the final amount is confirmed on the morning of the event, the deposit will be set against this amount of people to establish the final bill).

"We will be back for future events"
When looking for a partner to host our annual team offsite we needed to ensure the environment blended creativity, uniqueness, and great service, not to mention share our team’s passion for food and wine.
Ciaran and the team at the Tasting House delivered this and then some. The atmosphere that the Tasting House team created was a true one off and allowed us to get the most from a valuable two days out of the office. They catered for every space and technical need and allowed us to focus on our team offsite and not the details.
The wine tasting with Jack was like no other tasting session. We came away knowing more, having tried wines we would never have thought to try and bonded more as a team than before. And if coffee is your passion Phil is the man behind the best grinding of beans ever and his almond flat white is a must try.
We will be back for future events - Thank you team!

"We would highly recommend the Tasting House"
We would highly recommend the Tasting House, the service was excellent and they fully delivered on our requirement, they were very friendly and professional and had no issue catering for our specific needs.
The expertise and range of food & drink on offer was superb even converting some of us to wines we would not usually drink! Thank you for a great evening!

"The evening went really well and everyone had a great time."
We would be keen to get another date in the diary for February 2020!

"Ciaran and his team looked after us beautifully throughout the day."
I was looking for a venue to get our team offsite – somewhere different from the usual office meeting room environment. I chanced upon the Tasting House in central Reading (5 mins walk from the train station).
Well, what a lucky find! We used a large L-shaped room upstairs, and Ciaran and his team looked after us beautifully throughout the day, with some very enjoyable pastries, and then a lovely lunch. Tea and cakes in the afternoon kept the team going. They were very accommodating and I would certainly go back again next time I arrange an event away from the office. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to sample the multiple wines on offer on this occasion, but hopefully myself and others will be going back again to enjoy Tasting House on a social basis.
