Event Description

Welcome to the new format World of Wine course running over 8 consecutive weekday evenings. No previous wine tasting experience is necessary and the emphasis is upon learning by tasting lots of different wines. You'll be in the same group of like minded wine enthusiasts for the whole course as we will not be selling the evenings as individual tastings.

 What will you get from this course?

  • You’ll taste 50 different wines from 12 countries, 40 regions and over 40 different grape varieties
  • You’ll learn how to sniff, swirl and sip like a professional and how to describe a wine to family and friends
  • You’ll understand the flavour and aromas associated with the world’s major grape varieties
  • You will know the world’s major wine regions and the wine styles they produce
  • How wine is made, the importance of soils and climate and the influence of the winemaker
  • How to identify a faulty wine
  • How to read and decipher wine labels
  • The best ways to store and serve wine
  • You’ll learn all about pairing food and wine, giving you lots of ideas to try at home
  • How to choose better wine in shops and restaurants
  • A whole new wine vocabulary, plus you will meet like-minded people who enjoy wine

And most importantly…you’ll understand which wines you like and why

Our WOW course makes a great gift and can be purchased as a gift voucher for £280

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

Not a problem. You can either send a substitute or request a credit voucher that you can use to book another wine tasting.
