THIRTYFIFTY WINE TASTING

ThirtyFifty was established in 2002 by Chris and Jane Scott and is named after the latitudes where the majority of the world's wine grapes are grown, between 30 degrees and 50 degrees latitude, North and South of the equator.

We set about demystifying wine by bringing fun and no-nonsense wine tastings to people in their own homes. Inspired by a mutual love of wine and a growing interest in the subject, we trained up on wine with the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. It was this training that made us realise how, with a little knowledge, people could get a lot more out of wine and, the more knowledge they had, the more they would enjoy it.

Our wine tastings proved popular with groups of friends with an interest in wine who liked the idea of being entertained (and educated) with wine. From private tastings at home we quickly expanded to corporate events and wine courses and we introduced an online shop, enabling customers to buy any of the wines they'd enjoyed at our tastings.

From our early days in the London area, we've increased our national coverage with a team of wine experts running tastings across England, Wales and Scotland. In 2008 our company won the International Wine Challenge Wine Educator of the Year award in recognition of the work we'd done towards educating people about wine through our tastings, website and wine podcast, The UK Wine Show It's a weekly podcast produced by Chris with news and interviews to give an insight into latest trends and hot topics within the wine industry.

We have a team of wine experts running ThirtyFifty tastings across England, Wales and Scotland. As well as plenty of wine experience, they all have Wine and Spirit Education Trust qualifications and many either hold the Diploma or are studying for it. Above all our team share a love for wine and a desire to pass on their knowledge - whilst having fun!
