Established in 2010, The Solent Wine Experience was set up to enable wine enthusiasts to discover more about how wine is made and the different flavour and aroma characteristics of the many different grape varieties used. To understand how the wine trade works and the pricing structure of wine, giving you the confidence to explore different wines and purchase wines you know for sure you will enjoy.

Based at our wine shop VIN Wine Merchants in Emsworth Hampshire, we cover Portsmouth, Southampton, Bournemouth and Chichester as well as London offering Corporate and Private Tasting Events, Team Building, Wine Courses and Wine Experience Days. Wine is all about personal tastes so we aim to explore the vast array of different styles that wines produce around the world.



Many thanks for the tasting yesterday evening. All the group enjoyed the informal friendly approach and appreciated the answers to our varied list of questions. It was clear you have a wide knowledge of the subject and real experience in many aspects of the wine industry'

Many thanks for your wine tasting event at our (Smith & Williamson) offices last Thursday. You did it with a different approach and I learned more from that than the good number I have been to over the years and I came away feeling I had learned a few things to take away with me.
