Facebook review by Paul "I’ve just completed the 8 week world wine tasting course (a treat to my wife & I as an anniversary present). The tutors, Sam & Sherry are both very passionate about wine & the course is both enjoyable & educational. Give it a whirl, there’s far worse ways to spend an eve in EC3"
