Join us for a fun wine tasting day (11am to 4pm) in an exclusive Cambridge University venue 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 (Gonville and Caius, 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.

- Introduction to Wine Tasting (recognising elements such as tannin, acidity, body, oak)
