Private champagne tastings just for you!

Are you planning a special event – a ladies lunch, classy hen’s party, a client function – and want to do something different and fun and drink champagne?

Or do you just love champagne and want to do a tasting with your friends on your terms for budget and venue so you can wear your active wear, your jim jams or a ball gown?

I keep Bubble & Flute jam-packed with more free champagne chit-chat than you can poke a sabre at and have subscribers from all over the world. 

I bring all my knowledge, energy and passion to my private tastings – email me if you want to know more.

Bubble & Flute tastings are…

Social & fun

An afforable way to explore champagne

Definitely NOT for wine professionals

I don’t hold ‘masterclasses’.
Of course you will learn stuff about champagne, but it’s an ‘all in’ experience. The more you talk, the better!
Discussion is required, interruptions are welcome, and noise and laughter are 100% expected! Even at corporate events.

My private tastings are designed for hardworking and mortgage-bound champs-fans with kids’ school fees to pay. If a food-matched 5-course conventional champagne dinner feels out of reach, B&F events are for you. I can host them in your office or home… on your back deck or on your couch!

You won’t get complex tasting notes describing 12 different fruit and flower flavours at my tastings. Yes – I will help you recognise different flavours or styles of champagne so you can feel smug at dinner with the in-laws… but if you are new at this, I keep it simple.

Styles of tastings…

Special occasions

Corporate Tastings

Feature at events

Custom-made tastings for birthdays, ladies lunches, hens parties, special occasions, annual meet-ups or reunions. Or just because you deserve it… and of course you do!

Staff parties, client entertainment, office events, conference ice-breakers or after workshop wine-downs (and wine isn’t a typo!)

I can host a ‘drive-by’ tasting in an area at your conference or event, interacting with your guests as they move around the venue.

What you can expect

I like to keep it simple…

And work within your budget.

My fee is $350 + GST + cost of champagnes for groups up to 6. For larger groups, I can prepare a tailored proposal, see more below.

The fee includes

  • My knowledge, energy and passion hosting your tasting for up to 3 hours.
  • A goody bag for all guests to take home with printed tasting notes about all the champagnes we enjoyed plus additional, exclusive B&F cheat sheets, books and discount vouchers for my shop.
  • Glassware, table decorations, and event set up.

I LOVE hosting events for more than 6 guests but I do prepare tailored proposals for these larger events depending on your numbers. Because I want your guests to have an amazing experience, it usually takes a bit more of everything for bigger events… more glasses, more staff – and more fun!

Champagne is priced in addition to my fee.

I will work within your budget to design a champagne tasting menu that is right for your guests. And I work my connections to get you the very best deals on the champagnes!

A quick chat with me and I will be able to plan a fun and fascinating champagne adventure for your guests but to give you an idea the main options that influence the budget are:

  • Serving champagne as a tasting (not a full glass) – 15 tastings per bottle OR
  • Serving champagne as full 100ml flute pours – 7.5 glasses per bottle AND
  • The mix of champagnes… options for non-vintage to cuvée de prestige and everything in between.
