It is a simple idea really… We bring the wine tasting experience to you; wherever that may be! We will come with glassware, plenty of know-how, nibbles (if you wish) and all the wine-naturally! All you have to do is, sit back, relax and enjoy the experience!
At Bacchus, we’ve been offering wine tasting experiences since 2019 and the business has grown considerably since then thanks to how well received our events have been. I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to all tasters for their support over the years. If you’re new to Bacchus, I very much hope you enjoy getting a flavour for what Bacchus Wine Tasting offers below. You can also check out our ‘Showcase’ video at the bottom of this page. Thank you for your interest and I hope to be able to discuss an event with you soon. Johnathan
The main thrust of our offering lies within Private Wine Tasting Experiences. This is where I fell in love with the world of wine myself after all! Bacchus will come to you; in your home, hired space or to form part of your larger event. We can also offer event spaces for you in most major cities due to our extensive hospitality partners; this scenario might be ideal for a hen-do for example.
You can also come to us. We love collaborating with local hospitality partners to host Public Wine Tasting Events. Look out for updates on our site for Bacchus Wine Tasting Events popping up at a venue near you.
Our Virtual Wine Tastings are still very popular. Currently we operate a quarterly schedule with events usually taking place on the first Fridays of March, June, September and December. We may throw in a fun food pairing tasting now and again too when the occasion arises so, once again, check out site for up-to-date event listings.
Oh, and there’s our Cross-County Vineyard Tours! Working so closely with producers has led to the natural progression of offering vineyard tours-with a twist! Being based in Merseyside means that we don’t enjoy the virtue of having vineyards on our doorstep. Well, very much in the ‘Bacchus Sprit’ of bringing the experience to you; we lay on all the door-to-door transport, accommodation, meals and take you to the vineyards! And when we say vineyards, we do take that to the nth degree and take you to the best producers across several counties. Take our first tour of the South East in 2021 for example, where we visited no less than 6 estates across Kent, Sussex and Hampshire. 2022’s current schedules includes tours of the South West and the South East. Yup, you guessed it, hit the link above to be taken directly to the webpage for more info.
The Bacchus School of Wine is our newest baby in the Bacchus family. Launching in 2022 we are offering Ofqual regulated WSET Levels 1 & 2 in Wines. Being an Approved Programme Provider for the Wine & Spirits Education Trust is a huge honour for me personally as this is where my intrigue and appreciation for the complexities and joy of wine really began-in a WSET classroom! We’ll be offering our classroom courses in venues across Liverpool City Centre, Wirral and Crosby initially with great aspirations to grow further.
And finally, the Bacchus Bottle Shop is fully stocked and ready for you to browse. Check out the tab on our main site for our top picks; there’s a lean towards the very best of English as well as French wines but you’ll also find lovely offerings from around the world of wine.
I do sincerely hope Bacchus Wine Tasting can offer you or the wine lover in your life exactly what you’re looking for. We invite all questions warmly so please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Thank you,
What People Say
I cannot recommend Johnathan and Bacchus Wine Tasting enough. I wanted to do something special for my 30th and being able to do it in the comfort of my own home was even better. Johnathan is really knowledgeable and really happy to answer all questions! We all really enjoyed the experience and continued to chat about it into the night even when Johnathan had left. If your looking for a fun evening with friends and a chance to try and learn about new wines then this is the experience for you, you won’t be disappointed!Emily: Home Wine Tasting,
I highly recommend Bacchus Wines for your next wine tasting experience. I booked Johnathan as part of a daytime hen do activity in Liverpool – a large group of all ages – and we were entertained from start to finish. Johnathan was super friendly and extremely helpful in the lead up to the event. He tailored the wine tasting to suit our requirements and even added personal touches such as photos and music of our choice. He was very knowledgable on the wines and also gave us time to chat and drink – the setting and tone was spot on. A huge thank you from all the hens for making it a memorable and fun experience. Wishing you all the best!.Natalie: Hen-Do @ Malmaison,
Well… what can I say Jonathan is the most knowledgable wine connoisseur and host! I have attended many of his online tastings and Jonathan really knows his stuff. I’ve learnt something new about different wines every time! He relaxed style makes those attending enjoy the sessions, and he makes learning and enjoying wine / different styles or types of wine fun!
Jonathan is also great at bigger events and catered for nearly 20 people for us recently! Everyone remarked how they enjoyed the evening. Jonathan makes wine tasting really fun and enjoyable, and would highly recommend him!Emma, Virtual & Private Party,
