Event Description

Our Introduction to Wine Saturdays are one of the most popular beginners tastings we run. Our French exploration edition focuses entirely on the wines of France, expect the classics alongside a few unexpected gems. Kick back, relax and enjoy the ambience as we spend the whole day tasting, learning about and enjoying our fantastic selection of wines...

Starting with an overview of the winemaking story, you'll quickly get to grips with the role of grape variety, climate, wine making techniques and even soil types. We'll show you how to swirl, sniff and slurp like the pros and you'll be introduced to wide range of different French wine styles. By the end of the day you'll know your Claret from your Beaujolais and be able to tell your friends the story of how Champagne is made.

Learn the basics of French wine labelling terminology, how to select wines to suit your taste, how much to spend on a bottle of wine and how to squeeze more enjoyment out of every drop!
