Sippers and Spitters: Wine Tasting In the Comfort of Your Home
W e met Natalie Davids, a wine connoisseur with a passion for wine from all over the world who has set up her business Sippers and Spitters to share her knowledge and appreciation of artisan wines. She tells us her story in her own words.

SippersandSpitters is a company specialising in hosting fun and educational wine tasting parties. These wine tasting parties are the perfect, fun way to start hen parties, birthday parties, team building/corporate events and even before a dinner party. These parties are hosted by a qualified wine connoisseur and are fun with games incorporated, including some interesting/educational wine facts. Tasting sheets will be provided and participation is mandatory. Together with this is some food pairing to enhance the flavour of the wine. I plan the tastings, source and buy the wine, pair various foods with the specific wines, prepare the tasting sheets and host the tasting.

Before embarking on a career in wine, I studied Governance and Political Science at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. I worked at the South African Wine Industry Information and Systems (SAWIS) as the Information Manager. Visiting vineyards and winemakers all across the Western Cape where my interest in wine grew to the point where I decided I just had to earn a living out of it.

WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) qualified, I have extensive knowledge of countless wines and wine styles. As the founder of SippersandSpitters, I thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge and wine discoveries with great enthusiasm and hosting wine tasting parties. My events are as entertaining as they are informative. Wine is to be enjoyed after all, so why not do it in a fun way!

Since working in the wine industry in South Africa, I discovered my passion for wine. I love drinking it, discovering new wines, talking about it, educating people about it. I have learnt so much and achieved so much at the same time. I always keep up to date with what is happening in the wine industry. I love tasting new wines and wine styles I have not tried before and enjoy networking at various wine tastings and wine industry events.

The wine tasting will take place in the comfort of your own home or wherever is most convenient for you. The wine connoisseur hosting the event will provide everything, including tasting glasses, tasting score sheets, pens, food, spittoon, colour chart, maps, etc.

“I had an awesome time at Natalie’s wine tasting event. Her great hosting skills coupled with her knowledge and expertise on wine ensured our evening was fun and full of laughter. This is a great idea for any special occasion.” Thuy Pham

“Thoroughly enjoyed the evening, the wines were memorable and it was made even better by the host, Natalie. She clearly loves what she does and makes you feel like a friend. “ Hayley King

“The Sippers and Spitters wine tasting party was a fab evening with wine, friends and giggles, what more could you want?! Natalie was a fantastic hostess who strikes a great balance between getting the important details across and having a fun time, with a few games thrown in. She also created a relaxed atmosphere which allowed us to enjoy some banter between tastings while still moving the evening along without feeling rushed. Finally, the selection of wines was a great range of red, white and a glass of bubbles which meant everyone had their favourite by the end of the evening. In short...I can't wait to book my next tasting party!" Catherine Fox-Kirk

I thoroughly enjoyed my first wine tasting experience with SippersnadSpitters. In particular, I found Natalie to be very fun, professional and knowledgeable. I have recommended it to all my friends as a fun filled yet somewhat educational/informative evening.” Andre Goncalves
