Review: "I did the 8 week World of Wine course and wow I learnt a lot, and tasted a lot of great wines from all over the world. This course is informative but does not overload you with too much information, which is great if you want to get a good basic understanding! A relaxed atmosphere and a really nice way to spend an evening, learning and trying wines. A great experience and great price. I highly recommend!" Emily
