Wine Tasting for Everyone
At Yorkshire Wine Experience we love wine and we know you love wine too. That's why we would love to help you learn to love it a little bit more.
Ever found yourself staring at a shelf of wine at the Supermarket not knowing which wine is good or what to serve with that special dinner you are cooking to impress someone special. Before you know it you end up buying something because it's on offer which inevitably disappoints. We have all been there but we can give you some easy tips and tricks that make those bottles a little easier to understand and give you a better chance of buying something brilliant instead of the same thing over and over again.
Yorkshire Wine Experience tastings and events in Sheffield will help you to learn how to spot a bargain or to find wines which really rock your world. Just as importantly you will learn to understand why some wines don't float your boat and how to avoid them. We are totally independent, that means we pay no commission and can pass savings on to you; our tastings are competitively priced at £20 for a single ticket or £30 for two. It also means you get an unbiased opinion on all wines tasted at our events and honest answers to those questions you've always wanted to ask.
There are some wine schools where you learn about the wines you taste that day, which is great if you only ever drink that wine. Others tell you all about the soil but who wants to drink dirt? You don't need to worry that this is a sales pitch either because we don't sell wine so you won't be asked to sign up for a case of Chateauneuf du Ripoff at the end of the night.
We love wine and we know you do too but it's easy to feel intimidated when looking for that special occasion bottle or to get stuck in a rut drinking the same wine week after week. We want to empower you to try new wines and to better understand why you love the wines you do. Yorkshire Wine Experience specialise in relaxed and informative tutored wine tastings. Our local wine tastings are designed to be accessible and fun for everyone. If you've never been to a tasting before, we will guide you through the basics and get you sniffing and slurping like a pro in no time.
Wine tastings offer a great way to compare different wines and, using our tasting techniques, you will quickly develop your ability to recognise flavour and aroma. We'll teach you the tricks of the trade to make informed and balanced judgements and get more from your wine. Whether you're spending five pounds or fifty on a bottle, there's always great value to be found.
Our tutored wine courses will give you plenty of time to explore the great wine regions of the world and the wines they make. Whatever your preference, we are sure there will be an event that is perfect for you. The workshop will be lead by WSET qualified tutor Phil Probert; with nearly 10 years in the wine trade he'll be on hand to get you slurping, swishing and sniffing like a pro in no time.
Yorkshire Wine Experience invites you to join us at one of our informal and informative wine tasting experiences. Hosted at the Hilton Hotel, Sheffield, you can be sure that every care has been taken to ensure you have a fabulous evening. Our tastings are intimate, limited to just 16 people at each event and they're sure to be snatched up quickly, so register today!
Learn to Love what's in your glass!
Wine tastings are a unique opportunity to compare different wines and understand what you enjoy and in some cases what you don't. Our tastings will help you to understand your own preferences and to identify the types of wines that you are likely to enjoy so you won't waste money on bottles that you don't.
Our Six Week Courses are a little more detailed and cover a different region or country each week giving you a real chance to get your teeth into the wines of a particular country. While very accessible they will give a good grounding in understanding how wine is made and why some wines cost so much more than others. We firmly believe our courses can give you the tools to get more from the wine in your glass.
We believe that by not selling wine we can give you an unbiased view of the wines you taste and can shop around to give you some of the best value available. At the tastings we will give you details of where these wines have come from so, if you wish to track them down, you can do so.
Our customers attend as groups, singles or as couples and the tastings are a fun and relaxed way to meet new people or to spend time with those you love. We hope that you will leave feeling that you have picked up a tip or two but, above all, having had a great time.
Corporate Tasting, Hen and Stag events, Parties with a difference.
Alongside our wine courses and tastings, you can also hire Yorkshire Wine Experience for a private or corporate event. Our tastings can easily be adapted to suit your requirements and make a great addition to a birthday, anniversary or dinner party.

We are a totally Independent Yorkshire business and very much look forward to meeting you at one of our events very soon.
