Birthday Ideas

Wine tastings are a popular way to celebrate a birthday, whether it is a wine tasting party at your home with close friends and family or as a birthday gift voucher to attend one of our One Day or Evening tastings in London, Bristol, Buckinghamshire or our weekend wine tasting breaks in the Midlands.

Birthday Party Ideas

Our Birthday Party Wine Tastings are a great activity if you are stuck for an idea. They are available UK wide so whether it's an informal birthday get together at home or you're celebrating a special birthday (30th, 40th, 50th or 60th...) your guests will love being entertained with wine and learning something new.

Our tastings are a great fun birthday activity, designed to suit a crowd with different levels of wine knowledge - from absolute beginner to wine buff. There's the option of a light-hearted quiz with wine tasting challenges to put your guests' newfound skills to the test.

Our birthday wine tasting ideas are below and are all for a minimum of 10 guests. For more party themes and wine tasting ideas have a look at our tastings at a glance section.


Classic Birthday Party Tasting

We are invited to host lots of birthday parties and our Classic Birthday Party Tasting is great for a mixture of guests, male and female, younger and older with a range of wines to keep everyone happy and a little bit merry!

Taste 1 sparkling wine, 2 whites, 3 reds and a dessert wine. Participate in wine tasting games and challenges! We can, on request tune the wine line up to match any particular requirements for the Birthday boy or girl. Minimum of 10 guests.

Our £35pp Birthday party package is wine tasting with higher quality wines, including an award-winning English fizz!

Our £25pp Birthday party package is still great fun but with a more modest line up of wines including 1 sparkling wine, 3 whites, 2 reds and a dessert wine.

Tastings for the Birthday Girl

Ideas for ladies who love their wine (surprise your wife, spoil your mum, organise a girls only birthday celebration!)
We have put together a special tasting designed with the birthday girl in mind and our chocolate & wine tasting is perfect for chocoholics.

The Birthday Girl Tasting at £30pp
Similar to our Classic tasting but with more female-friendly wines including 2 sparkling wines (Pink Champagne vs Sparkling rosé), 1 still rosé, a white, 2 reds and a dessert wine. The tasting is £30pp with 7 wines. Minimum of 10 guests

We have a wine tasting geared more towards the birthday boy or how about our beer & wine tasting?

The Birthday Boy Tasting at £30pp
Similar to our classic tasting but with more male-friendly wines including 1 fizz, 2 whites, 3 reds and a Port. Minimum of 10 guests.

Beer & Wine Tasting at £30pp
For the birthday boy who like his beers as much as his wine, this combined tasting should hit the spot! We taste 4 wines and 5 beers, including several boutique, microbrewery beers. Minimum of 10 guests.

Bespoke Birthday Party Tasting

Bespoke Wine Tasting from £35pp
We are happy to tailor the wines to make sure we include some favourites and avoid the wines that are a definite no-go for the birthday boy or girl. Let us know your requirements and we can suggest an appropriate selection of wines! Prices from £35pp or £40pp with higher quality wines.

Vintage Wine
We can supply vintage wines from the birthday girl or boy's year of birth. This make an extra special present and can be included as part of the tasting or given as a gift. Prices vary depending upon the wine and age but typically prices start at £100 for wines that are at least 30 years old.

It can prove surprisingly difficult to come up with exciting and original birthday party ideas for friends and family, but hosting a wine tasting party can be the perfect way to add a fun twist to your traditional celebrations. Whether you’re looking for something to mark a more relaxed occasion, or someone in your family has a special birthday on the way, like a fiftieth, our private wine tastings are designed to suit your personal needs.

At ThirtyFifty, we have years of unbeatable experience entertaining crowds of different numbers, ages and personalities, and we guarantee your guests will be still be talking about your wine tasting party by the time next year comes around! We can amuse crowds of anything from 10 people upwards and our parties are designed to assume all different levels of wine knowledge. Whether you have a group of complete novices, or there is the odd wine buff among your collection, we are sure everyone will come away having learnt something interesting or found a new favourite wine to reach for.

If what you are seeking for is birthday party ideas with a real difference, we bet you will love our wine tasting games and challenges! Our light hearted approach to holding a wine tasting party sees us receive an influx of feedback from our customers about how much fun they had, and the interesting discussions provoked from our mini quizzes.

Wine Tasting Party

When another birthday creeps along, it can often be a race against time to find something memorable on a budget, but at £30 per person this is a reasonably priced practical solution that could save you a lot of time and money! Get the chance to taste champagne, and a mixed solution of red and white wines all in the comfort of your own home.

Our unique wine tasting party is planned to be as flexible to you as we can possibly make it! If you prefer, we give you the option to trial our award winning top wines for just an extra £5. Or for anyone happy to find a few more everyday wines to choose from for a more casual tipple, we supply a £25 tasting.

If you’re already a bit of an expert on the age old practice of wine tasting, you might be more tempted to give one of our more specific tastings a whirl! Try a theme such as New World to sample glasses from countries like New Zealand and South Africa, to bring a more exotic feel to your birthday party ideas. You may even pick up a few handy tips about how to judge the potential of your wine; whether it might be suitable for aging or better off started right away!

Our outgoing party hosts teach you how to get the best out of your wines, based on colour, appearance, smell, sensation and after taste, complete with plenty of games and laughter along the way. By the time it’s over, you’ll be thinking of excuses to book the next one!

Birthday Venue Ideas

The wine tasting can be held at home or at a private venue. Pubs or restaurants with private rooms work well and though some may charge corkage, most will happily provide the room if you are eating there. Depending on your location there may be a small charge for travel.

Our clients say...

I wanted to thank you so much for making my 40th birthday party a fantastic event and such a memorable occasion. I've wanted to do a wine tasting party for so long now, and it more than lived up to my expectations. All my friends have since commented to me that they thoroughly enjoyed the evening and thought it was a great idea - now trying to think of an excuse to do another one!


Thank you to Abbie for such an interesting and informative wine tasting evening. Everyone has said how much they enjoyed it and how much they learnt as well. It was a very entertaining and relaxed evening which helped to celebrate Tony's 70th birthday - he certainly enjoyed it and it was something very different which gave a wonderful focus for the evening and provoked some interesting discussions and wild guesses!! It all added to the fun.
