Event Description

The start of your wine tasting journey! Spend a couple of hours in the company of one of our qualified tutors practicing how to swirl, sniff and slurp your way around a glass of wine: learn to taste both whites and reds like a pro! 

Our Intro Evening is a great way to get started with Thames Valley Wine School.

You'll taste three whites and three reds, learn a little bit about some of the key grape varieties, the main wine-making techniques, which countries are perfectly suited to wine production, and most importantly, you'll learn more about what you enjoy drinking and why.

We'll teach you how to taste wine, why some wines are so much more expensive than others, and what some common labelling terms mean.

If you fancy a little wine 'taster' session, this is just the ticket!

Fun, friendly, and a great way to learn a little more about your favourite drink.

We can't wait to welcome you to an Intro Evening soon.
