Wine tastings are a fun way to learn about wine. Songbird Wines can organise your wine tasting experience in Canterbury, Whitstable and South East London.

Wine Tastings & Events

Private wine tastings & parties

Wine tasting parties at your home are very popular and can cost as little as £11 per head.

What we do – Bring along a selection of wines to taste, glasses, spittoons (rarely used!) and tasting sheets.

What you do – Relax and enjoy!

Basic tastings for up to 10 guests including 7 wines costs just £110. Other costings are listed on tariff on right.

Weddings and Hen parties

A Champagne Sabrage is always a hit at Hen Parties

We at Songbird Wines love a good Kent wedding we do! And we also take the special day very seriously. We offer a chance to taste wines to ensure you have ones that you enjoy and can source any special wines that you might want. Songbird Wines can also offer your own personalised label wedding wine and own personalised label wedding Champagne. Call Jonny Wren on 07766 731954 for more details on the Kent wedding wine service.

But why stop there? What about the Hen party? Wine tastings are a hugely popular activity with Hen parties. A basic tasting costs £100 for up to 10 people but you can also include a blind tasting competition, premium wines for you connoisseurs and a ‘Sabrage’ for the ‘Hen’ (slicing the cork off a bottle of fizz!). So, Maids of Honour, if you have a Hen party planned in Canterbury or Whitstable then here’s a great activity that is all organised for you.


Office parties

Before the disco begins and the photocopier gets inappropriately used, a wine tasting is a great way to kick of the office Christmas party. Include a blind tasting to give it a competitive edge – does Brian from Accounts really know his Rioja from Chianti?

Course of tastings

If you would like to learn in more depth then a three part tasting will cover the great wine regions of the world.

Wine events

I have organised a number of successful wine events over the years including dinners with Xavier Ausas of Vega Sicilia, Bruno Borie of Chateau Ducru Beacaillou and Eric Baugher of Ridge Vineyards. It takes time, skill and plenty of preparation to ensure events like this are success. If you are thinking of organising a wine event and would like my help please email

“Jonny organised a marvellous Taittinger champagne dinner for Chelsea Vintners. His trade connections and experience ensured it was memorable evening for our customers. We will be using his services again.”  Richard Leighton, MD at Chelsea Vintners

“Rosé doesn’t get much better than this.” Jonny Wren, Songbird Wines Founder We Brits can sometimes be guilty of not taking rosé seriously enough.
