Kent Wine School

"At Kent Wine School we teach people about wine by concentrating on the flavours and aromas of the wines. We focus on the taste profile of each wine explaining the characteristics of the grape variety, the climate, and the winemaking, and show you with maps and photos where they came from and how they are made. We explain why they taste like they do and ask and listen to what you think about the wines. It's all about trial and error through tasting. We love wine and want to share this with everyone!"
