How to turn a horse box into a Prosecco bar

The Vino Van Events Ltd is a stylish fleet of mobile bar solutions for any event, including the star of the show - a pretty pink horsebox that has been stunningly renovated into a Prosecco-dispensing vehicle. Owner and entrepreneur, Siobhan, also has four marble-effect free-standing bars, all perfect for any event where your guests are looking for a crisp glass of Glera Frizzante Prosecco, a classy cocktail or a high quality G&T. Fully licensed, staffed and complete with it’s own generator, The Vino Van can function in any location, from a busy city spot to a countryside field for your festival-themed wedding! We spoke to the woman behind the business and find out how easy it was to turn an old horse trailer into a bar…


Honest

Friendly

Fun


"My name is Siobhan Holmes, I’m 30 years old and I come from Corby in Northamptonshire. I bought the horse trailer in January 2017 and it was ready just 6 weeks later… my first booking was the 1st April 2017!"

"Before I started The Vino Van, I was working as a substance misuse practitioner for young people. The motivation to start the business came from working long hours and community. I wanted to start something fun! The Vino Van team is made up of me, Beth our Marketing Assistant, our Bar Manager Zoe and several excellent bar workers, including Amanda, Ros and some more adhoc staff."

Siobhan conceived the idea, bought a horsebox, had it fully designed and renovated and painted it herself all within 6 weeks to be ready for the spring events season!

"The steps to get my business set up were refurbishing the horsebox, finding events and finally spreading the word across social media. The highlights so far have been the amazingly positive comments about the way the van looks!"

Siobhan’s beautiful Prosecco trailer can be found all over the UK at weddings, birthday parties, festivals, food and drink events and sporting events. Her favourite thing from The Vino Van’s menu is the Prosecco Hugo… a sophisticated sparkling cocktail made with Prosecco, elderflower, mint leaves and fresh lime! When she’s not supplying the country’s most fun events with cocktails and Prosecco, Siobhan can be found tucking in to her favourite meal, poached eggs and avocado on toast.
