The Official and Unique Business Banter Sophisticated Wine Tasting Event

#sophistication review

The #sophiticated evening was a real eye opener for the wine connoisseurs and amateur bevvy merchants alike as Pieter took us on a journey of discovery through the vineyards of the world in pursuit of that sophisticated drink to enliven any party. At the end of the evening, Pieter gave his thoughts on what he would suggest we all look to buy over the coming festive period.

No animals or children were endangered by this event and we would thoroughly recommend Pieter for any occasion!! ;-)

What is it?

A tour around the world in eight wines.

Join regular Banterer and professional wino, Pieter Rosenthal in tasting your way around the world of wine. Pieter has selected wines from across the globe for this very sophisticated event. He will be holding your hand (if you ask him nicely) while teaching you all the words you need to know to impress your friends around the dinner table. This in turn will make you look even more sophisticated than you already have to be to attend this event in the first place. If you do not possess the right level of sophistication, you may even be refused entry.

We will also be organising some tapa-style food to enable some very sophisticated food & wine matching to be done. Your life will never be the same again.

When is it?

November 23rd at 6.30pm, just in time to organise your wine arrangements for Christmas, assuming you're sophisticated enough to drink wine for Christmas.

Where is it?

Curler's Rest on Byres Road, within staggering distance of the Hillhead Underground station.


£30 per person, which will include sophisticated tuition from your resident expert, all wine samples and tapas.


Be Sophisticated, be there, don't spit. Wear dark colours in case you dribble but still want to look sophisticated. Please advise if you have any special Buckfast requirements, although this may harm your level of sophistication.

What's next?

Put the date in the diary now! Jacky and Pieter will be posting some very sophisticated teaser videos over the next few weeks to get you in the mood and once we're ready for registration, you will be able to purchase the tickets right here on the site. Tickets will be limited to 40 of the most sophisticated people so get ready to hit the 'Buy Sophisticated Wine Tasting Ticket' button.
