"Thank you for the way you planned and managed our Champagne Luncheon for sixteen of our friends and business associates yesterday, pre discussions leading up to the event showed us that we are dealing with a professional who only has our interest at heart. The presentation from table set up, to designing menus to matching wines / champagnes were to die for! Every person who attended has not stopped commenting on your knowledge of the wines and food matching. The chefs and waiters you engaged were very professional, their food and presentation was amazing! We will be sure to engage your business for future events and will gladly recommend you to our network of friends / associates."
John Von Reuth, Managing Director JVR Global
"Sam did an excellent job conducting a wine tasting at our house for a hens party celebration. She was extremely organised, professional and very likeable. She prepared an amazing varied food platter to go with the wine. She has great knowledge and was comfortable joining in conversation about wine and other topics. I would highly recommend her and think she would be suitable to host several different types of functions from work functions right through to special occasions".
Sarah Robb, Sydney
So much passion goes into Sam’s work for an event. She has so much knowledge on wine and food and the pairings of the two are fantastic. Presentation is gorgeous and Sam is so friendly, professional and fun. Thank you for a fantastic night Sam! I look forward to having another one!

"I have had the privilege to be served by Sam on a number of occasions and to my delight Sam has always gone above and beyond my expectations.
Her down to earth persona and bubbly personality fits well in any event from a casual dinner to a catered event for VIPs.
Sam’s extensive knowledge in wine astounds me as she always seems to be able to compliment the wine and food together perfectly.
I would employ the services of SJ events for future functions and special events."
Tammy Foat, National Operations Manager JVR Global
“We recently attended an intimate corporate event hosted at a private residence. The event was a 4 course lunch with wine tasting included for each course, all prepared at the residence and was organised by Sam from SJ events. What a fantastic time we had! The food was spectacular and well chosen for the day and the wine was sensational too. My husband does not drink wine but he thoroughly enjoyed the ones that were given to us to try. The service was prompt and seamless, with short waiting times between courses. The staff were professional and helpful and we especially loved having Sam explain the wines we were drinking in great detail and the chef coming out of the kitchen to tell us what we were eating. Thank you Sam for a fantastic event - we don’t live in Brisbane but I will certainly be recommending you to those that I know do!"
Simone Roos, Operational Manager TAM Northern Queensland
"I recently hired SJ Events for a wine tasting and food matching event for my friends hens party and I have nothing but praise for Samantha and her wine knowledge.
In the lead up to our event, she was so easy to deal with and was always quick to answers any questions I had.
Then during the event, she arrived early, went above and beyond with themed decorations and a delicious grazing platter and then kept us engaged and entertained during the 6 course wine tasting.
I would definitely recommend SJ Events and can't wait to book Samantha for my next girls dinner party!"
Kat Howard, Brisbane
"Thank you to Sam for an unforgettable experience at our recent office Bottle’n’Board event. It was such a relaxed, fun and tasty afternoon.
Sam is very professional and was a pleasure to deal with while organising the details of the event. From choosing a perfect combination of wines to suit, to suggestions for the platter, Sam did all the organising without a hitch.
Sam arrived with everything you could possibly think of, and more - A spread so generous and beautiful you just didn’t know where to start! Her skill and knowledge made learning about the pairing of food and wine a fun and informative evening.
Can’t wait to do it all again! Thanks again Sam".
Hannah Leu, Brisbane
"SJ Events - Such an innovated idea educating the guest while serving them some of the best wines from different regions around Australia and France.
To be able to experience the Wines supported by Sam's vast knowledge in wine making while enjoying the delicious food experience is what I enjoyed the most.
Sam really held everyone captive with her extensive knowledge and passion.
I enjoyed the discussions that where held around the table about which Wines people enjoyed the most.
I will be recommending SJ Events to everyone and will definitely be looking at using them at any future events I hold."
