“Tech Tastes Wine was a refreshing and delicious new format to learn about wine, taste it and chat with entrepreneurs and like-minded new friends in tech. A must go to event!” 

Min Fitzgerald, Singularity University

“Tech Tastes Wine event was great fun. I couldn’t imagine a better way to learn about the intricacies of a fine Bordeux while also getting valuable networking time with other London entrepreneurs. Would definitely go again.”  

Mark Solomon, Founder and CEO, Love the Sales

“One of the few events I keep going back to in London! I have now been attending many TTW events and it’s always been with great pleasure. Always met a smart crowd out there, not to mention a great variety of speakers. To cut a long story short, just a great atmosphere indeed, and this was brilliant: to add wine tasting to a networking event! Thanks to Maya for making those really successful evenings! Can’t wait to the next one in 2016!”  

Stefan Maurel, CEO

“Maya helped me connect with people and media in Spain and Europe, which was pivotal for our business. I recommend doing business and working with her!”

Diego Remus, Editor-in-Chief and Founder Startupi, Brazil

“I have been to only one event organized by TTW but I was delighted in meeting some wonderful people, trying foods that blow me away in a delicious Peruvian restaurant, and all under the guidance of the restaurant’s “patron” in the flesh. Definitely an experience worth being repeated, and I am a kind of regular in the restaurant now (Ceviche Old Street)”.  

Dario Poddana, Les Caves de Pyrene

“A very innovative way to socialize around tech startups while tasting wine. A fairly good way to mix learning and fun. And like any good thing, the event is always too short! The diversity and size of the crowd has grown and there is not enough space around the table anymore! People come for the speakers as much as for the wine, which is always excellent by the way. The founder of Tech Wastes Wine, Maya Plentz, hand-picks wineries and importers of fine wines, and organic wine producers that have an interesting story to tell, so participants learn about wine production methods, economics, markets, logistics, and wine history as much as about varietals, vintages. It is not a wine tasting in the traditional sense; it is a master class for those interested in creating or investing in digital companies in the wine sector, or food, or fashion sectors. It is not a demo either, nor pitching, but entrepreneurs and investors speaking candidly how they go about launching their startups from concept to market, scaling issues, finding capital, going global, etc.”   London Investor
