LONDON, ENGLAND, November 19, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Lovestruck.com and Vini Italiani, the home of Italian wines in the UK, successfully launched a new singles event called Speed Tasting, which consisted of 9 ladies and 9 gentlemen tasting 9 different wines within 90 minutes.
The event was developed in partnership with Vini Italiani and held in their delightful wine store located in South Kensington. Award-winning sommelier Alessandra Celio chose 9 exquisite wines for the male and female guests to enjoy over the course of 9 one-to-one 9 minute chats within the allotted timeframe.
Lovestruck's Events Manager Grace Polsom, said "Lovestruck was looking for something exclusive and intimate for our over-35s audience. We strongly felt that wine tasting with a twist at Vini Italiani would be the perfect choice for like-minded people who want to share and explore their love of wine".
Matteo Berlucchi, Vini Italiani's Founder said "We are Italians and passion is one of our key values. While holding one of our wine tasting events we thought 'why not mix it with dating'? A common passion is often the best way to start a relationship so we decided to partner with Lovestruck, the best dating site in the UK."
