Tasting Sessions Terms & Conditions Agreement
This was a very enjoyable afternoon out, combining the experience of our local steam railway with some excellent wines and cheese. The wines were all something different and well presented with an explanation of each. Johnny was an entertaining host with an in depth knowledge.
We used VanVino for a work event recently where the ran the bar and had 2 gin tasting sessions. They were really nice and friendly whilst also being extremely efficient. They catered for all our needs and gave some really good insight into what would work best for the event. Would certainly use again!
I booked VanVino’s cocktail experience for my sister-in-laws Hen Do this weekend and we all had the best time! Johnny was so professional and I would highly recommend his services! There were 17 very excited Hens to manage and he did such a great job!
I attended a VanVino Gin tasting experience at a Christmas event this year. It’s fascinating learning what you didn’t know that you didn’t know! Highly recommend.
Johnny was a great addition to my sister’s hen party! Very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour. Great communication when booking, very organised and professional. Highly recommend!
We asked Johnny to do the bar for us at our son’s wedding at Voewood, near Holt, North Norfolk. He and his brother Charlie did a terrific job and deserve more than 5 stars. Thank you.
Simply the best wedding bar ever.
Johnny and Charlie were brilliant at my 50th birthday party last night. Great service, professional, fun and nice guys. Thank you Johnny for all your help with the booking. Highly recommended. Chin chin!
Johnny is a superb and knowledgeable host, who has guided my friends and I through a host of gin and wine tastings. Every event has helped us to find new favourites or to appreciate a classic from a new perspective after learning about its history or tasting notes. And as for having tastings on a steam train on the Mid Norfolk Railway – inspired! An excellent company that hosts exceptional and unique events I will be going back to again and again.
Johnny led a brilliant cocktail making masterclasses at a hen do. Everyone was able to get involved, and he also made a non alcoholic cocktail for the non drinkers. A fabulous evening!
Absolutely fantastic cocktail masterclass for a hen do at Sedgeford Hall! Johnny is an expert in his trade and made the whole session so enjoyable and fun! The girls had an absolutely blast and can not recommend Vanvino high enough. Johnny is so professional and friendly. Couldn’t fault if I tried! Outstanding!
