For Parties, For Events

Indoor or outdoor, large or small – doesn’t matter, an efficient service is what’s called for!

Wine bottles at a party

Every event or party is different, they all have their own individual needs and requirements which can give the organisers a real headache – not the case when it comes to the wine.

The Event Service from Viva Vino works for all, of course the wines differ and Chris is more than happy to help you make the right choice beforehand.

Pouring wine

When organising major events for the Army’s National Charity we are constantly looking to provide our supporters with the highest quality food and wines. As our mission is to raise the maximum in terms of fund-raising, we rely on finding suppliers who offer the best value for money without compromise to quality.

At ABF The Soldiers’ Charity we have used Viva Vino for over 10 years to provide wines for all our events. The quality we receive is consistent and the service in providing wines pre-chilled together with FOC glassware takes the hassle out of the process. I would highly recommend Chris and his team for your next function.

How it works:

  • Wines delivered at a time that suits (can be the day before).
  • Wines that need chilling are chilled and stored in special cold boxes (staying cold for up to 48hrs).
  • Wines are provided on Sale or Return.
  • Free Glass loan, with ‘No Washing Up Service’ included.
  • Empties, glasses and unopened wines are collected at a time that suits.
  • The bill – simply for what you have drank.

I can not speak high enough about the great service I have just received from Chris at Viva Vino, I was hosting a party for 150 people. Chris supplied me with an excellent choice of wine at superb prices, he delivered the wine CHILLED on the day of the party along with glasses, all the wine was supplied on a SALE or Return basis which was great not knowing hoe many bottles would get drunk. All Glasses and unopened bottles were collected the next day – I will be USING your services AGAIN!

Wonderful service with a chance to taste and choose. Delivered spot on time and sale or return leftovers collected the next day. When organising a party, this hassle-free service is a must! Also, a big bonus to be able to return glasses dirty. I can highly recommend Viva Vino.

Thank you so very much Viva Vino for the amazing quality pink fizz and flutes supplied for my daughter’s birthday party. My husband also was very impressed with the beer options for the men. We have used ( and will continue to use ) Viva Vino for parties before. The options of free glasses, no need to wash them up, sale or return (to be honest the option is there but we haven’t needed it as Chris always gets the quantity needed just right) are perfect. Chris has an excellent price range to suit our budget and his service is 100%. On time and chilled… perfect.

A really good service with two essential ingredients: good wine and enthusiasm.  No party is complete without Viva Vino!

I have used Viva Vino for a number of private functions and have always been impressed with the service provided. From Chris’s knowledge of wines, to the choices offered and the delivery and collection service of both wines and glasses, I would not hesitate in recommending Viva Vino for parties and opening events.

Viva Vino quality wine to your door step! What more can you ask for? Oh, yes when you have a party and use them to deliver wine, they will also deliver glasses and clear dirties the next day! Amazing service on every level 🙂 Well done!!!!

The service from Chris at Viva Vino was excellent. He was extremely helpful in organising not only the wines but extra mixers etc. Our party was an 18th but with a cross section of adults and teenagers, so we were unsure of the amount that would be drank!! Chris was very helpful in guiding the wine choices – which were perfect, and great in giving guidelines on quantities. That said not all was consumed so the sale or return aspect was fantastic. Glass hire service good too – will definitely use again. Thanks Chris!!

I have known Chris Richardson and his company Viva Vino for the past 18 months in which time he has provided wines and his excellent services for two wine-tasting events in our village and to my own daughter’s wedding. 

What I have learned about Chris in that short time is that he is a man full of passion for his business and its products, and that he is always willing to go the extra mile to provide an outcome which will delight his clients. 

For our wedding he provided a personal wine-tasting session at our home which proved to be very helpful, informative and fun. And even when, after tasting a dozen or so great wines, we were still looking for something different on the white he went back to the market and found us just what we fancied. In the end we had a super selection of Cremont, Rose, Whites and Reds which went down a storm!

There is however much more to his service than great wines – for example, judging volumes for 160 guests can be tricky but Chris agreed a reasonable buffer which he supplied on a sale or return basis which helped manage the cost and made the process so much easier. He was able to supply glasses for all the wines, and even went further to provide glass-ware for drinks he was not even supplying ! 

On the weekend of the big day all the wines were supplied the evening before in cooler boxes where necessary which kept them just right for over 24 hours. He even provided something to cool beers in – again when he wasn’t selling us beer. 

What could be done to lighten the load of a busy weekend was done –  always willingly and with a smile.

All in all we found the experience of working with Viva Vino to be excellent.

Quality wines indeed. Absolutely delightful wines to compliment any occasion and not least of which is the event we organised as a networking group. Chris provided a very friendly service that included choosing the superb wines and delivery of free glasses and of course the free collection of the dirty glasses and unused bottles. Great all round service, highly recommended for anyone want to organise an event.
