Wine tasting dating parties are singles nights with a difference for sociable professionals. A great alternative to speed dating or lock and key parties, these are immensely popular, stylish events.
Even if you don't like wine, there's something for you too - beer tasting dating parties - just as popular as wine tasting, and enjoyed equally by women and men.
These unique singles events expertly combine tasting different tipples with mingling in a great crowd of sociable singletons. The evening's all about meeting new people, tasting a selection of great drinks, learning a little, and having one of the most sociable nights out around.
We think wine tasting dating parties are a great alternative to speed dating. There are no whistles, you won't get given a name tag, you get longer than three minutes to chat, and just like speed dating, there's no time to feel embarrassed or desperate.
Our partners, Grape Vine Social have spent a long time exploring what makes a great sociable night out, and we think they've found a winning formula in wine and beer tasting dating for those that want something less run of the mill.
The whole idea is that you let your hair down, that's why wine tasting dating takes place in different stylish UK bars on Friday nights.

Dating just got a whole lot more sociable! The debate raged long and hard over the most sociable format for single guests to meet each other at these singles dating parties.
Wine tasting dating parties were originally run on a one-to-one format, similar to speed dating, with guests sampling each drink with a different date.
The problem here, was that guests only met 6 dates out of a potential 25! Being the cupids and social animals that Grape Vine Social are, a cunning plan developed...
Wine tasting dating party guests now experience a group-dating format, which means you meet 3 times more dates than before - after all, that's what wine tasting dating is all about!
If it's your first time, there's absolutely no need to be nervous. The friendly hosts will make sure you feel relaxed and enjoy your evening, you'll be made very welcome and looked after well, but above all you'll have unimaginable amounts of fun!
