When you think of wine tasting you probably consider the famous regions of France or Spain or the vineyards of California. But you no longer have to grab a rucksack and travel guide to hit ‘the grape trail’ and taste great wine. Because you can do it right here in North Somerset – thanks to the Wine Tasting Co.
Based in Churchill, North Somerset, the Wine Tasting Co. was founded in 2009 by Kelli Gould, who used her experience from working for a London based international wine company and extensive wine knowledge gained from travelling around the world to set up a wine tasting centre.
Offering a range of competitively priced tasting opportunities from private gatherings, to hen parties, business networking opportunities and wine-tasting at the elegant Woodlands retreat, The Wine Tasting Co. aims to eliminate the stuffiness sometimes associated with tasting and to provide a relaxing introduction to great wine.
Kelli comments: “Our philosophy is love wine love tasting and we welcome everybody to come and taste great wine, no matter their experience or level. Wine tasting is a great social event that is perfect for celebrating a special occasion.”
It was on a trip to New Zealand in 2006 that Kelli had her ‘wine moment’ and returning to the UK, the former youth worker entered the wine industry, first in London and then in Bristol for an independent wine merchant, and gained advanced qualifications with the Wine Spirit and Education Trust. Kelli is also about to start the diploma that is the stepping stone to becoming a Master of Wine
The business employs a couple of hosts and according to Kelli it is going from strength to strength, with client networking proving a popular package.
“We run networking opportunities for businesses and they have been particularly popular. Companies are using more creative ways to win new customers and our tailored wine tasting events can be used to create new business relationships and impress prospective clients.”
