Week 1 – Introduction to Wine Tasting
This first session will cover the basics: how wine is made and where in the world it comes from, how to taste wine and assess it like a true professional, tasting 6 wines, including grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Tempranillo and Primitivo and improving your senses.

Week 2 – Champagne, White and Rose Wines of the World
This evening we’ll move on to talk about white and pink wines. We’ll talk a bit about the grape varieties and what they taste like as well as the wine regions that they come from, consider their potential for food and wine matching and further hone your wine tasting skills. We'll also cover things like use of oak, find out which is better - cork or screw cap, and bust a few wine myths too!

Week 3 – Red wines of the World
Here we’ll explore the huge variety of red wine styles to be found. From light and fruity Pinot Noir to the smooth Valpolicella Ripasso; the elegant Beaujolais Village to the ever popular Argentinian Malbec! As well as trying 6 more fantastic wines, we’ll also talk about tannin and why some wines get better with age, as well as some other useful tips like why/when you should decant wine and what temperature to serve it at.

Week 4 – Classic Wines of the World
In the wine world we call Classic Wines = Europe = the "Old World" - so we'll be tasting some classic examples of wines from France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Portugal, many wines so little time :-(
