Lindsay's enthusiasm, knowledge, and professionalism regarding wine is a delight! Even though I've visited numerous cellars and vineyards, during my at home session with The Tasting Class, I learned so much -- not only about the tasting experience, but about history, wine culture, and different processes. I highly recommend this service.
Courtney Brandt Founder, A to Zaatar
As a leading events company we have used The Tasting Class for many of both our high end, and also fun urban events. We have always been very happy with their services and high level of visitor engagement on every level. Weather it's a simple get together of friend's for a fun evening, or a full on event with over the 10k visitors, The tasting class never disappoints and always mixes knowledge with passion and fun!
Bill Ghorayeb Managing Partner, Altaria Events
It is a pleasure to work with The Tasting Class, as CitiSpi we have undertaken a number of events with them and each has been a roaring success. I find Lindsay great to work with and is very organised, which when dealing with 50+ paying attendee’s is a must. We are looking forward to working together again under our new brand name City Social before the end of the year.

The Tasting Class has assisted us in creating a series of wine and cheese events at Jones the Grocer over the past 6 months. Lindsay and her team have been creative, flexible and enthusiastic partners to work with and we have received several positive comments about the events from our guests. We are always looking for more ways to work together The Tasting Class.

Having Lindsey as a beer sommelier at our private client event was fantastic and she truly made the evening. All of the guests were relaxed and engaged having Lindsey talk through 4 different beers and their food pairings. She was so knowledgeable about the different beers which was commented on by most guests, and her personable demeanor encouraged everyone to get involved and feel at ease to give their thoughts on the beers. We are already planning a company beer tasting event as we all enjoyed the evening so much!

Starting and running the Dubai Wine Club has been a labour of love, but after about 5 years, my travel schedule and family made it difficult to keep up. Having The Tasting Class join the Club and take over has been a godsend. Their great sommelier knowledge, and lively spirit coupled with strong organizational skills has enabled the Wine Club to flourish, with almost no help from me!
Kevin Capozzi Founder, The Dubai Wine Club
For more than a year The Tasting Class has been facilitating monthly wine tasting events for Global Eye. Over that time, and as a result of these events, we’ve seen an increase in new clients as well as repeat business from existing customers. It’s been a real win for us. The Sommeliers are so knowledgeable with great personalities, interacting and involving people throughout each event. As a result I’ve become better at appreciating wine and cheeses and knowing what to look out for when purchasing them. It’s great for business I’m sticking with them.
Brian Wolfe Wealth Manager, Global Eye
The Tasting Class is a unique must-do for all vino lovers. From the selection of the grape varieties to the pairing of cheeses and meats, Lindsay & her team will craft an unforgettable evening for you and your guests. The service is truly bespoke in every way. Lindsay’s expertise as a sommelier is evident, but her passion for the subject is contagious. She even converted a non-vino drinker by the end of the evening! It’s hard not to feel like an expert after the Tasting Class. The whole experience is fun, not-too-serious and truly educational. A one-of-a-kind, unforgettable experience.

We have worked with The Tasting Class on a number of projects over the past few years. Their work on training some of our frontline staff has been a huge contribution to the positive feedback that Sofitel’s F&B outlets continue to receive on service and knowledge of staff. This has meant return visitation is up on before we began working with them, we receive more positive feedback than ever before, and our F&B team is more engaged which in turn has increased retention. There are other companies that offer similar training services, but The Tasting Class’s knowledge, personal touch, style and, most importantly, results, won us over. It has been fantastic working with The Tasting Class, we will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
