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.

Call Jonny Wren on 07766 731954 for more details on the Kent wedding wine service.

But why stop there? What about the Hen party? Songbird Wines hosts a number of wines tastings for Hen parties every year around Kent and are a very popular event. A basic tasting costs £110 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 would like a wine tasting for your Hen party in Kent (or beyond) then contact Songbird Wines on 07766 731954 or email


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?

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
