Course Description

Welcome to our flagship wine course - a fun and informal introduction to the wonderful world of wine for anyone who wants to learn more.

No previous experience is necessary - the emphasis is on learning by tasting.

This course runs for one evening each week to help you build your knowledge quickly. It is also flexible - if you need to skip a night, just let us know in advance and you'll be able to pick up a repeat session.

We have priced the course to save you £20 compared to the cost of booking the 8 evenings separately.

What will I get from this course?

  • Taste over 50 wines from 12 countries
  • Become familiar with different grapes and regions
  • Learn how to sniff, swirl and sip like a professional
  • Develop your wine vocabulary
  • Understand how to read wine labels
  • Discover how to store wine and ideal serving temperatures
  • Develop a basic understanding of how wine is made and the importance of soil and climate
  • Learn principles of food and wine pairing
  • Feel more comfortable choosing wine and recognise good value
  • Understand how to spot wine faults

What if I can’t make one of the evenings?

Not a problem. You can either send a substitute or we can schedule you onto a repeat session or give you a credit to use against any event.
