“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection" 
Ernest Hemingway

Vanilla, clove, hazelnut, blueberry and lime. We love the distinct nuances in wines, and helping others appreciate them too. We organise events where people can come to taste and discover different wines.

Wine tastings are fun, social and interactive: a time to relax after a day of work, and enjoy a glass of wine with friends or new people. Our tastings can be run at your workplace, your home or in a separate space which we can book for you. You can choose the topic of your tasting (for example, just sparkling wines, or Burgundy reds), or trust our creativity.

We offer various package experiences, with prices depending on the number of people, bottles, and location. 

 

Prices start from:

£35 per person

 2 + people | 5 - 6 wines | 2 - 3 hours

This is your chance to learn all about the world of wine.

If you don't know where to start and what to choose when looking at the wine menu in a bar or restaurant, a workshop is for you. Our workshops are educational tastings to help you understand why each wine is different to another, and teach you how to describe a wine using sophisticated terms. Starting by analyzing the appearance, the nose and palate, you will be able to arrive at a conclusion developing your own idea about a wine.

Workshop tastings cover a new topic each session, to combine curiosity and interaction with a bit of learning. They are ideally for groups of 12 people, last approximately 2 hours, and take place in a different location everytime. During the class we provide learning material (e.g. maps, wine vocabulary, pens).

 

PRICES START FROM:

£25 per person

up to 12 people | 5 - 6 wines | 2 hours

What‘s your next occasion to celebrate? 

Wine tastings are perfect for birthday parties (for grown-ups, of course), hen-do's, Christmas parties, or just an office Friday afternoon drinks with colleagues. We organise events where the theme is wine, and the location can be your workplace, home or a separate space which we can book for you. The price depends on the size of the party, the number of wines, and the place.

Divino in Vino is collaborating with Bedales Wines for WSET courses. Since 2015, Silvia is the lead educator for WSET Level 1 and 2, which take place at Bedales of Leadenhall, on Saturdays and Sundays. 

WSET qualifications are globally recognised as the international standard in wine and spirit knowledge. They are designed for those who are just starting out in their careers, as well as established professionals, and the many enthusiasts who have a passion for wines and spirits.

WSET was founded as charitable trust in 1969 to serve the growing educational needs of the UK wine and spirits industry which, at the time, primarily spanned import, distribution and retail. Funding was provided by The Vintners' Company and WSET took over the education initiatives started by the Wine and Spirit Association of Great Britain.

Divino in Vino is a boutique wine service based in London, offering tastings, workshops and events.

It is run by me, Silvia. As a stereotypical Italian, I love food and wine, and being together with other people to share special moments.

Before becoming a sommelier, I wrote about wine as a journalist in Florence, but quickly realised that writing wasn't enough. I wanted to create the special moments too. So I started organising events at Studio Umami, and worked at the renowned Florentine wine bar, Coquinarius.

I came to the UK in 2013, to show Londoners how to love and appreciate wine as a true Italian does. I worked as a wine specialist and educator for Bedales Wines - a gem of a wine bar in Borough Market - before moving into what I do now: running tastings, workshops and events.

I find happiness in the small things - like shared laughter over a glass of wine - and I hope to bring this happiness to you too.
