Heeltap is a wine events, training and retail business based in Derbyshire, and run by sommelier and wine educator Samuel Walker.


An amount of alcohol left at the bottom of a glass after drinking:

“Wait, I have still a heeltap. I must drink a toast”

My experience includes working with some of the country’s top chefs and training with The Court of Master Sommeliers and the Wine and Spirit Education Trust.

I provide on-trade wine list and staff training services, as well as private wine tastings.

Claude “The Van du Vin” is available for hire for any event.
