experience wine tasting in the cotswolds

What I Offer

At Cotswold Wine Tasting I offer a fully tailored wine tasting experience in the beautiful surroundings of the Cotswold countryside.

You may be visiting the area or are lucky enough to live here, either way, I can bring a wine tasting to you. I am happy to cater for an intimate one-to-one, a small group, or family gathering.  A wine tasting can also make the perfect gift – fun and informative, more in-depth and serious, or give me a free hand, and make it a complete surprise!

The tasting can take any format you choose. You may wish to relive a trip abroad or explore new regions or grape varieties. Perhaps to look at one wine through several vintages in a vertical tasting, or make a comparison of one grape from regions around the world. It might be all white wine, or all red. Champagne versus the rest of the world, or take a look at our own nascent industry and taste English wines.

I am happy to put together an event to suit your budget as well as your interests.


I am a freelance wine professional, based in Cheltenham and working in the heart of the Cotswolds. I’m passionate about the world of wine and with sharing this passion with others. 

I supply all wine and glasses for these events and am happy to travel anywhere in the Cotswolds.

Costs will vary, depending on the number and style of wines chosen. However, a guide would be to budget £35-£50 per head for a group of six people.

"Tracey organised a fantastic evening of wine tasting. She picked a fantastic selection of wines, including some from lesser known regions/vineyards each of which was paired with a cheese from the Cheeseworks in Cheltenham. She did a fantastic job tailoring the session to our group pitching the level of information perfectly, and challenging us to guess the region and price. It was a brilliant evening, great fun, informative and so easy to organise. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have some fun and learn some more about wine from someone with huge depth and breadth of knowledge and experience."
