Tastings for You
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). 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.
