Event Description

Wine school founder Jimmy Smith was recently in Georgia delivering WSET tuition at the Khetsuriani Sommelier School in Tbilisi. He is a passionate ambassador for the superb wines of Georgia, the country that is often lauded as the cradle of wine, as wine is thought to originate from here and surrounding areas.

With his masterclasses in recent years on Georgian wine coupled with the series found on his YouTube channel, Jimmy was awarded the prestigious 'Honorary Sommelier of Georgia' award, only the seventh person to receive this accolade - given to those who are important ambassadors of Georgian wine. Once again Jimmy was so enthused by the developing scene of the Georgian wine industry, visiting new producers and making new friends, that he is launching new masterclasses at West London Wine School, both in-person and online.

This evening he will guide you through an evening of history and culture, acting as a 'tamada' (a toastmaker) and sharing his knowledge for this wonderful country of wine. You will taste both European styles (wines fermented/matured in stainless steel or oak) as well as the famous traditional styles produced in qvevri (large clay pots), with some being subject to longer skin macerations. Get ready for a truly unique and fascinating evening enjoying at least 8 wines with the newest Honorary Georgian Sommelier. 


For this special online tasting, an exclusive tasting kit is included in the listed price which includes a 50ml tasting sample of each wine. Note: Tasting kits will be despatched to attendees within the week leading up to the tasting. 

Tasting kit delivery can be made to anywhere within the UK only. At present we are unable to fullfill international orders.

DON'T WANT TO RECEIVE A TASTING KIT? We understand that not everyone will want to receive the wine samples, and would rather just register to participate in the online evening without the wines. That is absolutely fine! The fee to just register for this evening without receiving a tasting kit is £10. Just enter the promotional code: 45REGONLY when checking out to ensure you just pay the registration cost. 

Unable to commit on the evening? No problem! Anyone registered for this tasting will gain access to the video recording of the live event, so you can always revisit any of these at anytime in the future - whether its because you missed participating in the live evening or if you want to revisit the presentation at a later date.
