Have you ever wondered why some wines in shops cost £10 while others fetch three times as much (or more)? Is it worth splurging on pricier bottles, or is your £10 choice just as good?
Put your palate to the test in 'Twice The Price' – our no-holds-barred blind-tasting showdown hosted over three Tuesday evenings.
Each evening we sample 6 wines at around £7.50, £15 and £30 (split into two styles of wine), but the catch is, you won't know which is which.
Blind tastings are a hit format at the wine school, and this is your chance to play detective with your taste buds!
Do you think spotting the difference will be easy? Let's find out. Each bottle's price will be kept a mystery and after tasting we'll vote on whether it's the budget-friendly bottle or the premium pour. Expect a fun, competitive edge as we take a crash course each evening on the art of blind tasting and the economics of winemaking.
Ready for laughter and surprises? Join us for a wine course where you discover if your favourite wine is a steal or a splurge. It's more than just tasting – it's a revelation!

- Loire Sauvignon Blanc including Sancerre wines to compare
- Left bank Bordeaux appellations
- Albarino at different yields
- Rioja levels of quality from one producer
