Defining Wine is an education and events company specialising in wines and spirits, based in the Midlands offering a wide range of fun and educational services to business and the general public.

 

Wines and spirits are now part of everyday life. However, as a global business the topic is surprisingly complex and varied. That’s where Defining Wine can help.

At Defining Wine we believe that anyone and everyone can enjoy swirling, sniffing, tasting and learning about wine, spirits and drinks, either for business or simply for pleasure and fun.

Our goal is simple – to work closely with our customers to share our knowledge, demystifying wine and spirits in a fun and relaxed way. Whether you’re looking for formal training, a wine tasting event for a special occasion or help to increase your sales and profits, Defining Wine can help. See below for more information on some of the services that we offer or contact us if you can’t see exactly what it is that you’re looking for.

  • We have been fortunate enough to attend one of Andy’s Wine Tasting sessions and had an extremely enjoyable time. His knowledge of wines and spirits is formidable and, when coupled with his enthusiasm, brings complete strangers together for an informative and fun evening. His quiz is the icing on the cake, I thoroughly recommend!

  • I didn’t know what to expect when a friend dragged me along to a tasting on Italian wines, but I loved it! Amanda is great and so enthusiastic that you forget that you don’t know much and find yourself joining in. I now go to as many different events as I can.

  • Mandy’s Port evening was amazing – so good that we have organised 2 more since!  Excellent fun and we also learnt a lot without realising

  • Andy's session was fun and relaxed. It was perfectly tailored to the group, which was large, and the participants had a whole range of wine tasting experience. We all came away having learnt something new and had a brilliant evening.

About us

Amanda (Rowley) and Andy (Rickwood) founded Defining Wine after studying the WSET Diploma in Wines and Spirits together. With a love of wine and a shared belief that learning about wines and spirits should be available and accessible for everyone, they formed Defining Wine to do just that.
