Dunell’s Premier Wines - Wine Tasting Event Packages 2017
WINE TASTING PACKAGES - Dates currently available at La Cave - 4/5 Oct, 18/19 Oct, 1/2 Nov & 22/23 Nov
Our wine tasting events are a great way of entertaining a group of clients, colleagues or friends, whether for a staff night out, a networking event or even to celebrate a birthday.
Our highly recommended flexible format for the evening is a Blind Wine Tasting Quiz. You will try 6 wines (3 white and 3 red) in teams of 3-4 people, you will be asked to choose a grape variety, country of origin, vintage and price bracket from our multiple choice quiz. Have no fear though! Our staff will be on hand to help you out with a few clues and ensure you have a fantastic evening.
Our minimum number is 12 people and your event can be hosted at any of our 3 shops. We can also host the event at another location however extra charges may apply.
Beaumont Shop - La Route de La Haule, Beaumont, St Peter – Opposite the Goose on the Green pub
Can cater for up to 50 people and is ideal if you have a large group, with plenty of parking at the rear of the shop.
La Cave Shop - 37 Hill St, St Helier
Can cater for up to 25 people and is in a great location for moving on for dinner or drinks afterwards.
Gorey Shop – Gorey Coast Road - Next to the Bass & Lobster
Can cater for up to 25 people and is in a great position to move to one of the many restaurants situated nearby after your tasting.
There is a £200 event fee which covers events for up to 25 people at either of our shops, for numbers over this a £10 per person charge applies to cover extra staffing. This event fee secures your chosen date in our diary and is only refundable if the event is cancelled at least 7 days before the agreed date.
Now comes the good bit! Choose one of our wine packages; this covers the 6 wines you will taste on the night. We can tailor the wines to a particular theme if you wish – just ask on of the team and they will be happy to help you with this.
Bronze - £15 per person - great value wines for everyday drinking.
Silver - £25 per person - fantastically priced wines that always please our customers.
Gold - £35 per person - specially selected premium wines for the serious wine lovers out there!
Sparkling - £50 per person - this is the perfect event for those who love their bubbles!
A great way to start the evening off is to provide your guests with a drink on arrival. We will only charge per bottle for what is used on the night. There are approximately 6 glasses in a bottle, so a group of 20 would need 4-5 bottles.
Champagne @ £23.95 per bottle Prosecco @ £9.75 per bottle
Awarding prizes to the members of the winning quiz team is a great way to finish off the evening, after all their hard tasting work! Past events have worked well when the winning team get to choose a bottle each from the selection tasted to take home. This cost would depend of course on the wine package chosen and the number of people in the team, and is charged to you per bottle taken. Please let us know if you would like to do this.
We do not provide a catering service, but we can recommend a couple of great caterers who we work closely with and who have provided wonderful food that complements our wines. Of course you can use any caterer of your choice. If so, we would recommend avoiding any very spicy food and ensuring a selection of meat, fish and vegetarian options. Mild aromatic and wasabi flavours are fine.
