Private Wine Tastings

Our owner and director, Connal Finlay DWS, is a certified wine expert - the youngest in history to ever be granted with the WSET Diploma of Wine & Spirits. He is highly passionate and enthusiastic about great wines and sharing his knowledge, stories, and passion for wine with everyone he comes across.

If you are planning an event for your business, social club, school gala etc, then why not spice things up a bit and run a private tasting!

We know that wine tastings can be either a bit stuffy, complicated or static - not always a fun event despite wine being involved! Connal is a real asset to us and can be to your event too - he is highly personable, witty and has a great sense of humour. He has a background in teaching so knows how important it is to explain things properly and in a user-friendly manner but most importantly he makes wine accessible and fun.

Sussing out the tasting

Whether you would like to get a few friends around a table and have someone chat you through a couple of new and exciting wines, or host a more structured, formal educational tasting where you want someone to wax lyrical about certain vintages - then Connal is your guy!

Wine tastings should be fun and the great thing is they can be anything from a few people to a few hundred. 

The team here at The Cellar will do our best to sort things out for you but Connal is very hands on and will personally see to the wines he'll be sharing with you. When you contact us we shall set up a time for you to meet with Connal so he can personally get a feel for what you are looking for in your event. From there we shall take care of all the details from buying the wines for you and shipping - and making sure Connal gets to the venue in time!
