WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Podium Search“Eight consecutive events, for senior partners of London’s top Law Firms later and I can only say that Peter Lunzer is a genius! In order to get these guys to accept our invitation and to actually show up on the day you need an exceptional combination of exclusive venue, legendary wines and top of the range hosting. Peter, you nailed it and we were thrilled to get a 100% turnout on all events culminating in 105% at our last dinner in the series. We will certainly use LWE again and I highly recommend their professionalism and skill.“

– John Cullen
Director, Podium Search

GE Finance“Having previously used Peter Lunzer at CitiGroup for a number of successful client dinners, I thought that Peter would be a valuable addition to our annual ski trips to Chamonix and Zermatt for our Private Equity clients at GE. After a day in the slopes the last thing you need is anything taxing and Peter with his relaxed and charming ways managed to create the right atmosphere leaving all wanting more. Great fun with and accomplished presenter with a deep knowledge of wine! I would not hesitate to use LWE and Peter Lunzer again for high profile client entertainment!“

– Vivek Rattan
Senior Vice President, GE Commercial Finance

Global Head – Financial Institutions Group at Standard Chartered Bank, Hong Kong

Leading Venues Of London“Many people underestimate the power of selecting the right wines for their events. Peter Lunzer of Lunzer Wine Events has an unique ability to which he shared eloquently with our guests at an LVL Showcase Event held at the IOD. Wine is a subject many people find confusing and I highly recommend Peters down to earth approach to unravelling the mysteries of wine.“

– Mark Ward
Founder, Leading Venues of London

Guild Of Food Writers“The successful matching of wine to food has always been seen as something of a skill, and a source of pride to hosts who enjoy entertaining and displaying this particular ability. Peter Lunzer takes this skill to an entirely different level; he reverses the emphasis and, in taking the qualities of an excellent wine, he finds the foods most likely to make it shine its brightest. Peter has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the majority of Premier Crus French marques – not only recalling the physical details that combine to create a great wine, but also a taste and olfactory memory of each wine that he carries in his thoughts when selecting the menu with which to serve that wine. The results are always a revelation and, time and again, a spectacular success. The corporate events he hosts tend to follow the format of a traditional lunch or dinner, but the selection emphasis is clearly on a vineyard, Chateau or region rather than the choice of meat, fish or seasonal vegetable. Peter prefaces each course with description and anecdote in a light-hearted but highly informative way. There is tremendous pleasure derived from learning, particularly about a subject as hedonistic as food enhanced wine, and Peter Lunzer adds still further enjoyment with his style, wit and consummate ability as a raconteur. One leaves an event feeling extraordinarily well wined, dined, enlightened and educated, as well as thoroughly amused.“

You have a unique talent in being able to create exactly the right atmosphere for the HNWI present and that, together with the amazing wine, made for a much easier atmosphere in which we could do business, please let me know when you are next in Hong Kong and Singapore as I would love to repeat the process.”

– Guido May

Capreolus Club“Capreolus Club gatherings are always well attended and we have found Peter Lunzer of the Lunzer Wine Events, to be a wonderful host on the subject of wine and spirits, which provides a memorable addition and subtle distraction to the conversations about sporting rifles and their use in the field. At our Holland and Holland event the venue presented a superb setting for Peter Lunzer to introduce some excellent wines that included; Pol Roger, William Fevre, Chablis 2013, Chateau Lamothe Cissac, 2009, and Chateau Batailley, 2005. Each wine was expertly introduced to guests by Peter, whose encyclopaedic knowledge of wines and wine related anecdotes, made for a highly amusing and entertaining evening.“

Blackrock“The evening was very well received and the feedback was excellent.
Look forward to the next time!“

– Maida Atkins
Vice President, Corporate Events, BLACKROCK

Capreolus Club“As a DSC2 trained hunter and a huge wine enthusiast I always wanted to find somebody who can bring alive the concept of matching game and wine in a refreshing way. The evening that Peter and I put together – Venison and Fine Wine – was exactly what I have been looking for and it was a great success with our guests. I have since seen Peter in action many times through the Capreolus Club and Peter never fails to provide enlightened insight with a heavy dose of humour. I highly recommend Peter and his very down to earth and charming approach to client entertaining.“

– James Schneider
Member of the Capreolus Club

Vineyard School“Peter and team organized a wine tasting fundraiser for The Vineyard School in Richmond. It was a delightful evening whose highlights included Peter’s colourful storytelling about the various wines being tasted. Peter’s presentation and oratorical skills ensured that all had an enjoyable and entertaining evening. His oenological knowledge would be appreciated by any audience. Peter rates second to none in comparison to any of the corporate wine tasting events that I have attended over the years including those by Berry Bros. & Rudd. I was also surprised by his auctioneer skills as well. Peter was able to elicit lively bidding even for the more ‘unexciting’ items being offered. We are all hoping that Peter and his team will make this an annual tradition and we highly recommend Peter for any wine tasting event.“

– John Powell
Vineyard School

Standard Chartered“BIG Thanks! Our guests enjoyed very much and we got great feedback for the dinner. Your advice and engaging dialogues with our clients definitely make the difference. We look forward to working with you again in near future.“

Sailing Trust“I thought the Wine evening was just amazing!!!!! It is a terrific format and great fun. I actually learnt a lot apart from enjoying lovely wine. Lucky is the person who can work in a business that involves his great interests. As you are already a master in your field, it was enlightening to hear history and anecdotes so cleverly joined together as well. I was proud to hear that it was an Admiral who made bottling champagne possible. Looking forward to the next opportunity to see you in action.“

– Richard Shuttleworth
Jubilee Saling Trust

Standard Chartered“It was a great evening, we have heard a lot of great feedback – clients enjoyed the dinner a lot!

Silverfleet Capital“You made it a wonderful and very enjoyable evening yesterday, thank you so much! No matter to whom I spoke yesterday, all were impressed about your knowledge, choice of wines and the most discussed question on the table I was sitting at was: did you practise your speech or is it a god given talent that enables you to share your knowledge in such highly amusing ways?“

– Heike Wastlehuber
Executive Assistant, Silverfleet, Frankfurt

Angus Jackson OBE“Peter is a fantastic and knowledgeable host. I have had the pleasure of attending several of his events and have never left disappointed. It has been particularly fun to bring clients to the tasting dinners. Peter does an admirable job of ensuring that everyone feels included and comfortable. Exceptional wines in fabulous surroundings ensure a distinctive and memorable evening.“

– Angus Jackson OBE
Director, Tobal Consulting

Anders Brege“It is always an absolute delight to attend any event hosted by Peter. He has a particularly charming way of imparting his vast knowledge on wine that makes you feel both enlightened and comfortable. There is nothing snobbish about an evening where Peter guides you through the world of wine (and food), just entertaining and delicious. I have attended and let arrange countless wine tastings, dinners and events over the past decade with various experts in the industry, but I keep coming back to Peter Lunzer as my first choice. I particularly enjoy the trips he arranges to some of the best European wine destinations, where apart from terrific food and wine, I have really enjoyed being introduced to some of his many contacts in the wine industry.“
