Do you have a favourite grape variety you almost always choose? Do you prefer the French version or New World (Australia, South Africa, America)?

Join one of our fun-filled evenings exploring French wines made from famous grapes comparing them BLIND with wines made from the same grapes in New World countries. You will find new favourites.

Each evening is conducted in a light-hearted and fun way, finishing with a vote to see if we preferred the French or the New World versions. You may be surprised which you prefer!

And we'll teach you to tell the difference between countries by smell and taste alone! Imagine how much easier that will make it the next time you have to choose.

Note - if you want to fully develop your tasting skills, consider our 4-part France vs New World course (click here to see). The course really develops your knowledge and skills and you save £10 on the cost of the 4 evenings booked separately. Plus it's flexible - if there is a date you cannot manage, simply let us know and you can pick it up later.
