The Oxford Wine Company’s Theo Sloot would be delighted to organise an informal and fun wine tasting for you or your company on a wide variety of themes to suit you. (See The Blind Tasting Challenge We can supply an excellent venue at no extra cost which is a function room above the Portabello Restaurant in South Parade, Oxford – this will take 30 people maximum and has the advantages that there is a restaurant and bar downstairs. (The free room hire comes with the proviso that customers have a drink in the bar after the event or eat in the restaurant). Alternatively I can come to your own premises and provide all equipment and glasses if necessary.

Read testimonials about our tastings.

Please contact Theo Sloot by telephone on 01865 301144 or email him leaving your number and he will call you back. We prefer to talk through your personal requirements on the telephone rather than email so that we can best tailor the event to your needs.

You are also welcome to visit any of our shops where you can taste a wide variety of wines at any time.

You may like to visit our Events page for details of our regular scheduled tastings. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Fine Wine Services from Theo Sloot

Although my main job is to source and sell Fine Wine for The Oxford Wine Company, there are a number of services that I also provide. These include:

  • Keeping customers up to date with wines that are new to our list. Fine Wines are regularly being added and I am happy to keep you informed of what is coming in. Just email me at the address or telephone number below.
  • Sourcing individual wines for customers. I am regularly asked to find wines for customers who need a particular wine. Let me know your needs and I will source the wine for you at a competitive price.
  • Conducting tastings that are informal yet informative.
  • Buying, broking and valuing. If you have any wines that you want to sell or have valued, then please contact me.
  • Advice on storage, optimum drinking times, glassware and general wine related matters.

Please feel to call me on 01865 301144 or email
