Intro to Wine Grapes

An ideal introduction to the main wine grapes and their flavours (3 Tues evenings)

Here's an introductory course that will help you understand the character of all the main wine grapes.

Once a week for 3 weeks we learn by tasting and discover the flavours and structure of each grape, foods to pair with the wines, and what the labels reveal to help you identify classic styles.

We also introduce how climate and other factors influence the expression of each grape to help you choose wines more easily in shops and restaurants.

  • Learn the unique character of each grape and how to recognise the classic wines it makes
  • Discover perfect food pairings for each grape and try them in the sessions
  • Find out how each grape varies from country to country and why it happens 
  • Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris/Grigio, Riesling
  • Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah/Shiraz
  • 18 wines tasted - New World and Old World styles 
  • Ideal service temperature for these wines

We give you food suggestions for each grape variety and practice food pairing in class with carefully selected nibbles - discover your ideal combinations!

Come join in the fun and begin to see wine with new eyes!
