Saturday Introduction to Wine

Join us for a fun wine tasting day (11am to 4pm) including a delicious two-course lunch. Our Saturday courses are relaxed and informal experiences suitable for anybody from beginners to enthusiasts.

Beginning with Champagne we sample 13 wines from around the world learning what makes each one different and why. We even demonstrate how to open a bottle of sparkling wine with a sword (sabrage)!

There's a choice of two venues - a centrally located Cambridge college (where Professor Stephen Hawking was fellow) or beautiful Madingley Hall (where Queen Victoria sent her son Edward Prince of Wales to live when studying at Cambridge). For both venues we include a mini tour. 

These events make a great Gift idea for any occasion.

What you'll learn:

  • Introduction to Wine Tasting (recognising elements such as tannin, acidity, body, oak)
  • Major grape varieties
  • The effect of climate on the flavours in your glass 
  • Understanding how winemaking affects flavours in your glass
  • Food and wine pairings
