Just a quick message to say thank you for the tasting last night. We had a great time and the wines were lovely! Will be recommending it for friends.


Thank you for the email below and for a FANTASTIC session on Thursday, we've heard nothing but brilliant things since. 

Rebecca, Outsystems

Just wanted to say what a lovely day we had wine tasting.
Gilbert was incredibly knowledgeable and made learning about wine fun - such a shame he won't be coming up to Birmingham again, but hopefully we can catch one again when we visit London!


Let me thank you for an excellent wine tasting session yesterday evening. Rebeca and I had a great time, loved the food and wine and found you to be incredibly knowledgeable and interesting.


Geoffrey and I received universally positive feedback from your talk last night - well researched and eloquently presented. Thank you for making the evening such a success!
Best wishes, Clive

Excellent food and wine expert. Great way to spend a day with my grown-up children!!


A very good day, learnt a lot about wines and had the opportunity to taste a lot of good wines as well. The selected wines came from all around the world, and included many which I would not have otherwise have tried. Venue and lunch were also good.

Fantastic day all round . Great knowledge, great wine and great food. Highly recommended


Thanks so much for the wine tasting. Great start to the evening.

Enjoyed the experience. As a complete wine novice, it was good to learn about how the wines are made and to try different wines from all over the world. Hard going in the afternoon after the 3 course lunch, as we were all a little sleepy! expert was very good.

Paul and Rosie

Great Day!


You get to try a broad selection of wines from around the world with interesting and fun commentary. The lunch is excellent. Overall great value


A very good evening and very informative. the accompanying food was very tasty.

Gillian, Wine and Tapas guest

A very interesting & informative day. Very good host & location excellent. My only feedback to improve would be to offer a cheese board with the red wines as many would be better tasted with food. Otherwise a fantastic day & highly recommend the experience. Overall Rating 5/5


Me and my husband very much enjoyed this experience. It was well organised, set in beautiful hotel in Covent Garden and the wine we tested was brilliant. We have learned a lot of new details about different grapes and regions. Thank you! Overall Rating 5/5 


I wanted to thank you very much for the wine tasting on Saturday. We had such a wonderful day. We loved tasting 16 high quality wines in a fun environment and we learnt so much. Thank you for sharing you vast knowledge of wine in an informative and fun way, without it being stuffy. The 3 course lunch was excellent and the venue was great too. I cannot recommend this wine tasting event enough. Worth every penny and more. We will be booking the tapas wine tasting with friends for later in the year. Thank you.

Just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic day yesterday; we really enjoyed it and it opened our eyes to other wines to try and enjoy. Thanks again,

My friends and I are still telling everyone what a great time we had at the day at Browns before Christmas. I would really love to book for my sister and my brother in law to go to the day on the 4th March, could you let me know if there are still spaces for them?

Really enjoyed the experience. Very interesting and informative. Overall rating 5/5

...but just to send along as immediate a note as possible to offer our most fantastic thanks for your visit with us this afternoon.  The students were absolutely inspired and enthused…even the many who were ‘conservatively’ drinking…and have been thanking us profusely for having invited you along.
