You have attended wine tastings before.
You might have found they all looked and felt the same.
Let us introduce a wine tasting, but much more.

Benedict Ainsworth performing

A perfect marriage between expertly sourced fine wines and
a curated selection of The Bard's beautiful sonnets.

The interactive sessions are led by Valentino Minotti sommelier of the Michelin Star Hakkasan Restaurant in Mayfair, London among others and Benny Ainsworth internationally acclaimed Hamlet, a specialist of the Shakespearean language on stage. They are inviting you and your guests to experience the most exceptional pairing between poetry and wine, to dive deep into the emotions on a journey teasing all your senses.


Experience an exclusive private occasion

Choosing the Delegate Package you can entertain a group of 10-12 guests in a carefully designed setting with the actor and sommelier closely looking after the needs of each guest. Having the event set up in a smaller scale space gives a unique and personal touch to the experience, sparking open conversations around the table. This option is most suitable for smaller business outings, as team building, shareholder or executive board meeting, or for a private party.

Share the experience with your colleagues

The Community Package entertains any group up to 60 people, and is the perfect excuse to take the whole office out to enjoy together the merits of fine wines and fine poetry. It is an occasion that brings people closer and generates conversations enabling people to get to know each other from a different angle. There is an option to include a customized food menu for the guests with two or three courses as you wish which will also be paired with the whole experience.
