"We attended the Saturday Introduction to Wine at Lytham St Annes in March 2012. I can't rate this course highly enough. I bought this for my Wife as a present for her 30th Birthday. We both like wine but have never really engaged in any formal wine tasting before. We found Colin to be very knowledgeable and the content of the course to be just right. I would definately recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about it. The location (Glendower Hotel) was nice and the atmosphere was very pleasant and friendly" - Roger Bate March 2012

"I had the pleasure of attending one of Colin's Wine Tasting Evenings and was amazed at how much I learned - exactly what he told us we would learn at the start of the evening when we all soberly and disbelievingly looked at each other! It was a really enjoyable evening, excellent canapes to accompany the wine too, can't recommend the courses enough.
Colin has also expertly written for Love Lytham & St Annes since the first issue back in May. Always something interesting, well written, and on time - a Godsend in my business!!
Thanks for all your help and wisdom Colin." - From Alex Cosgrave on www.linkedIn.com
"I bought my dad one of your vouchers for Christmas. He went on your champagne tasting course and had a brilliant time"- Tim Aldred
"Dear Colin, thanks for a brilliant night when you entertained a group of myself and colleagues from Camhs.Superb night which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. As I mentioned my daughter was getting married (yesterday- and it was brilliant!. So I contacted the hotel about the wine, specifically the underrago rose. They not only stocked it ...the lady who we spoke to used to work at Majestic! We had the most fantastic weekend with a wonderful wine to accompany it! Thanks Colin for the wine tasting and wine recommendations!" - John Cooke 5th June 2011

Coral hired you as a Wine Tasting in 2010 and hired you more than once
Top qualities: Personable, Expert, Good Value
“We first hired Colin to launch our social events for our ladies network. Colin had to face 40 ladies and show them how to understand and appreciate a variety of wines. What can I say, 40 women and a load of wine not an easy combination to organise. Colin did a stirling job with great humour and patience. Our ladies enjoyed the evening so much that we have hired Colin again for a champagne evening. When hiring suppliers I always look for people who firstly are nice, friendly people who supply an excellent professional service to my ladies and who offer value because all suppliers reflect on the reputation I have for organising events, Colin was all of these. I am now using Colin again for an awards evening later in the year so I think the fact that I have hired his services 3 times in under a year says he does a great job.......or I have a drink problem!

"Pamela and I have attended two Wine Challenge Evenings and have really enjoyed the experience. Colin presents the evening in a relaxed but informative style, and is able to answer any questions that arise. It’s a great ‘fun evening’ and a splendid way of learning about wines. The blind tasting at the end, just adds the right element of good-hearted competition.” - David Taylor , Chapter Director, Bolton B.N.I. - January 2011
