Course Description

Let's not talk of 'New World' - did you know that winemaking dates back as far as the C16th in some non-European countires? Let's talk instead about what makes Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, Argentina and the USA such reliable (and hugely popular) sources of quality wine.

Free from many of the constraits imposed on European winemakers, these are the places where new ideas and approaches can bring innovation and excitement - and some pretty delicious wines. From easy drinking gluggers to wines as refined, complex and age-worthy as any from France, we'll look at the wines that can't be found anywhere else. 

We're not just talking Malbec (although there will certainly be a lovely example to try!) You'll taste Hunter Valley Semillon, aromatic Torontes  and South Africa's signature Pinotage.

The first 4 weeks of our popular World of Wine course make a great stand-alone introduction to wine. Through tasting 25 wines (with retail prices around £8-£30) from across the continent you'll learn how European wine making spread across the world and continues to influence global wine production. 


In a relaxed and informal environment you'll have plenty of opportunity to ask everything you ever wanted to know about wine. We'll soon have you tasting like a pro, and ready to tell family and friends the difference between Beaujolais and Barolo!

We'll tell you where to buy all the wines tasted, and recommend food pairings for each. We'll even help you interpret the most complicated wine labels (and tell you how to remember if it's Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc in your Chablis!) 

Book now and save!

Book all the session as this 4-week package and save £20 compared to the cost of booking individual sessions.

Chardonnay, Shiraz and many more have found a welcome home Australia, where they've forged a strong identity and distinct regional styles. The same is true for New Zealand, where Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are simply not to be missed!
