A wine tasting event isn’t something that happens every day for people, that’s why it’s perfect for a special occasion like a birthday or engagement celebration, or an alternative corporate away day for example. It’s a sophisticated affair which everyone can enjoy, whether they are a wine-extraordinaire, a fan of a hipster joint, or just there to try something new. Here are just a few of our favourite wine tasting venues to hire in London.

Check it out here: Patron Bar a Vin
This little venue is a hidden gem, found in Kentish Town. Patron Bar a Vin is partly-masked by a restored EJ Evans newsagent sign on the trendy Fortress Road, but behind the doors you’ll find a quaint wine bar that is complete with a deli-style cheese and charcuterie counter. The French-theme continues in the rustic decor too, with exposed brick walls, wooden floors and candlelit tables, all adding to its soft and romantic feel. What better for a private party and wine-tasting event with friends and family?
