Princess and the Pinot is about helping you to find and enjoy wines that suit your palate and your pocket. We aim to cut through the fuss and snobbery which can exist around wine by providing tasting notes and buying tips. You can’t buy wine from this site but we tell you where you can buy wines that are great value for money. The wine world is amazingly abundant and exciting. Our aim is to give you the confidence to explore new wines as well as enjoy old favourites.
Building on our success
Princess and the Pinot is the brainchild of Soma Jennings, who has been studying wine with the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) since 2012, and is currently studying the WSET Diploma.
In our first year we hosted over 30 pop-up wine bars across four venues, as well as hosting charity events, corporate events, and private tastings. Soma has even guest-presented at local wine clubs and private parties.
In our second year we launched HYO Wine Club, to help people across the UK to get more out of their wine experiences. Our aim is to link companies who make good wine with people who want to drink it. We can help you drink better wine, and not necessarily at higher prices.
Please get in touch if you would like to join HYO Wine Club, or come to our pop-up wine bars, or would like us to host your wine-tasting event.
You can also contact us if you are a cafe owner and would like us to host our events in your venue.
Please contact us if you are a wine-owner and would like us to feature your wines as part of our HYO Club and at our events.
