Event Description

Welcome to our flagship wine course - a fun and informal introduction to the wonderful world of wine for anyone who wants to learn more.

No previous experience is necessary - the emphasis is upon learning by tasting.

This course runs for one evening each week and by coming every week you will build your knowledge quickly. It is also flexible - if you need to skip a night, just let us know in advance and you'll be able to pick up a repeat session.

We have added an extra date to our normal 8-week tasting course, to include the wonderful wines of Portugal. Booking onto the full 8-week course entitles you to attend the ninth week free of charge.

What will I get from this course?

  • Taste over 50 wines from 10 countries - minimum 6 wines per evening
  • Become familiar with different grapes and region
  • Learn how to sniff, swirl and sip like a professional
  • Develop your wine vocabulary
  • Understand how to read wine labels
  • Discover how to store wine and ideal serving temperatures
  • Develop a basic understanding of how wine is made and the importance of soil and climate
  • Learn principles of food and wine pairing
  • Feel more comfortable choosing wine and recognise good value
  • Understand how to spot wine faults

What if I can’t make one of the evenings?

Not a problem. You can either send a substitute or if you let us know we can schedule you onto a repeat session or give you a credit to use against any event.

Please Note: For this course, due to availability of venue the dates may not always run on consecutive Thursdays
