What our members say
In an area of the wine industry, Vintec has played a major role in my enjoyment of fine wines for most of this young century so far. The highly professional approach to these special evenings is a credit to the company and to the Vintec Club.
Adrian and I had a fabulous night at La Dolce Vita,
The wine was exceptional 👌.
Please keep me updated with other future events.
Thank you very much for such wonderful hospitality. The wines were wonderful (my favourite was the Gabutti) and the food was delicious.
My father and I were shocked when you brought out the champagne that was extremely generous!
