Good morning all, thank you for yesterday I really enjoyed it and learnt so much
A quick word of thanks for the splendid wine tasting, and of course the wine. Great choice of event, was really good to ‘see’ so many people again...
What a great event, guys. Thanks so much for inviting me and my mum wants to say she loved it.
Very many thanks for this evening’s Zoom wine tasting event. What a wonderful safely-distanced alternative to face-to-face networking events. Adrian was perfect and I have learnt so much in a short space of time this afternoon. Even in 2D, it was good to see friendly faces. And seamlessly organised as something to look forward to this week.
Thank you all for organising this, my wife and I really enjoyed the experience
It was really nice to see everyone and the wine education was excellent.

Just a line to thank you so much for an absolutely brilliant day. Dale & I had a great time and we can thoroughly recommend your workshops to all our friends.

Thanks again, we'll be back. (Tony & Dale, London Wine Tasting workshop)

"I just wanted to say a huge thanks! I gave my parents one of your wine tasting sessions for a Christmas present and they attended the one in Edinburgh the week before last and I can’t tell you how good they thought it was. They had a ball and still talk about the weekend now. It’s completely changed the way they think about wine and certainly added to they’re enjoyment of it." Iain (Edinburgh Wine Tasting Workshop)
"Just a quick thank you for the tasting course on Saturday. It was great and I really enjoyed your well informed, non 'precious' style. You were really good too at being inclusive and making sure everyone felt involved. I've been raving about what a nice day I had to various friends all over the weekend !..." (Vivien, London Wine Tasting Workshop)
"Just a note to thank you for an excellent day

exceptionally informative and we thought the cross-section of wines sampled was of the highest quality. We met some great people and thought the event was
excellent value for money." (Vanessa, Manchester Wine Tasting workshop)
"... the most informative and pleasurable wine tasting that we have ever been at. Pieter was a fantastic host and as such is a credit to your company.

Just a quick note from Robert and I to say a BIG thank you for coming over on Sunday. We, and all our family and friends, throughly enjoyed the afternoon. It made my birthday very special. We continued talking about the 'experience' right through to the early hours - obviously with extra wine but we're all experts now!! We look forward to maybe doing it again sometime. Regards, Gill and Robert (Private wine tasting event)
"...first class job of hosting the night and I’ve never seen so many Dentists actually smile and genuinely enjoy themselves so hats off to Wine Unearthed. I will certainly not hesitate to use you again and recommend you to people we know." Gordon (Corporate Wine Tasting event)
"I went to the event on Saturday hoping for two experiences: an enjoyable day and a little more knowledge about wines. I achieved both well beyond my most optimistic expectations.
Your eloquence, communicative skills, expert use of language, ease of getting through
to us and - perhaps especially - your ability to keep everything in logical order, never once forgetting an item from the many lists you set yourself, were a delight in their own right, independently
of what you were telling us.
Then your choice of what to tell us, your ability to gauge the general level of knowledge in your audience (ranging from zero - in my case - to fairly high) and to cater for the whole range was interesting, useful and above all immensely stimulating. Many thanks for the whole event." (Leo, Workshop attendee)
Just to say thanks for a very interesting and informative seminar on New World wines in Oxford. Gil our tutor brought a lot of new (to me) thoughts about some of the emerging players in the wine business. His choice of wines both eclectic and knowledgeable. He introduced me to some vineyards that I would have otherwise ignored. The choice of venue and the menu for lunch was well chosen. In short an enjoyable and educational day. (Derek, Oxford Wine Tasting workshop)
“Thank you so much for coming all the way to Uxbridge to host our wine tasting event
last night and for your flexibility over the last minute changes to the timing etc. We all thoroughly enjoyed learning more about (and drinking!) the wines”. Clare (Otsuka)
"My wife & I would like to say what an amazing experience the wine tasting workshop was. It was very informative and detailed with a wide variety of wines to taste. The venue and high quality food added to the day. We felt the workshop was good value and would happily recommend the wine tasting day." Kind Regards Kelvyn & Angela (workshop attendees)
“I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's Manchester Tour de France wine workshop.

We've had great feedback from our guests and everyone here thought it was a fabulous night. One guest stated that it was the best client wine tasting she'd been to. Adrian was perfect in that we felt we were being educated but not lectured. (Boyes Turner)

We were entertaining very important and valuable clients and I was obviously organizing this for my directors so the fact it went so well was fantastic" (Bananakick)
This is just to say Thank You very much on behalf of my husband and myself for the very enjoyable and informative Wine Tasting session held at Bank Restaurant in Birmingham on Saturday. Our tickets were purchased for us as a gift, and we were a little concerned that the event would be pitched at a level that might have been above our limited knowledge ~ we know what we like but not a great deal more ~ thankfully the tutor made us feel confident and relaxed enough to join in…Once again, many thanks for a lovely day. Suzanne (Workshop attendee)
"I would be most grateful if your chef would share his Chocolate Pot recipe with me as it was beautifully matched during the Wine Workshop with a delicious wine. I would like to try to re-create this for a dinner party? Thanks again for a lovely time". Lisa (Workshop attendee)
“I just wanted to say Thank You for the Wine Tasting Event yesterday evening, this was a great success and also for staying on later in the evening during the meal, this was greatly appreciated” Emma (Renaissance)
Just a quick email to say that my parents went to the Birmingham workshop on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed
it. They preferred the white wines but that’s just a matter of opinion…Dad said it was the best Christmas present they had ever had!
Georgina (purchased voucher for parents as
"Many thanks for an excellent day.It is good to learn how little you know sometimes!" Peter (Workshop attendee)
Thanks for your time yesterday evening. The wine tasting was informative, pitched at just the right level and enjoyed by all who attended. (GVA Grimley)
"Just wanted to pass on my thanks for a fantastic session on Saturday in Oxford. Really enjoyed the day, the venue and the wine and will recommend you to others as a good day out for wine lovers." Ed (workshop attendee)
I just wanted to say thankyou for the one-day event last weekend in Bristol. I really enjoyed the day and now have a much greater appreciation of wine...Now I can actually identify what I like and look forward to developing my enjoyment of wine. (Bristol Workshop attendee)
Cracking Day! Thoroughly enjoyed it and would be happy to recommend to others. Please send details of forthcoming New World Wine days, thanks. (Workshop attendee).
"Judy and I greatly enjoyed the tasting. The voucher was a gift from our daughter and we didn’t know what to expect..... but you made it into a thoroughly instructive and entertaining day. You have certainly found your true vocation!...Although I have been drinking wine for almost 50 years, I had never (knowingly) had a Grenache Blanc and I have largely avoided the non-Rioja wines of Spain (especially the whites). Thus the opportunity to taste the Domaine Lafage and the Navarra and Bierzo was much appreciated, and I enjoyed the Portugese Lureiro/Alvarinho – another first. Well done! We shall certainly recommend your course." Mike Dixon (Workshop attendee)
"I just wanted to let you know how much Brian and I enjoyed the day, especially because of your passion for your subject!!" Claire (Workshop attendee)
" The whole day was excellent. Our superb host was very knowledgeable, welcoming and handled all the questions raised with ease. The lunch was excellent and the venue was good too...I would happily recommend this to others." Paul (Workshop attendee)
"...thank you for hosting such an enjoyable and informative event in Liverpool on Saturday. My wife and I really enjoyed it and are looking forward to trying some of the new grapes we discovered (especially Viognier)." Jon (Workshop attendee)
This is just a quick note to say how much my partner and I enjoyed our work shop day in Oxford (It was my birthday present to him). The whole day was a fun way of learning about wines, (which were a little too (if there is such a thing!) free flowing- 'making' us have a late afternoon siesta when we got home!). The whole experience was very, very enjoyable - Adam was a great 'host' and answered every question put to him - even considering my assessment of the Chardonnay having the nose of a stagnant pond! We would thoroughly recommend this to anyone- and we may see you again to 'hit' the Old World Wines next........!!! Carol (workshop attendee)
"A superb way to spend an afternoon and evening. Was it was it the opportunity to learn about and taste the fine wines, indulge in the fabulous meal or recognise why each of the carefully selected wines complimented the meal so perfectly? I am afraid we still don't know the answer after holding 2 wonderful events, maybe it will be third time lucky! Highly recommended!" Carol (BNFL)
...thank you to everyone who takes the time to drop us a line with their kind feedback...we could go on and on but I think you get the idea!
