About this experience

The aim is to provide you with a solid foundation on which to build and develop your wine education. Once equipped with the basics you will discover that your enjoyment of drinking wine is enhanced and your learning experience at future classes or tastings is all the better for it.

During the class you will sample 1 sparkling wine, 3 white wines and 3 red wines. As we taste our way through them we will explore what wine is and those important factors that affect its overall taste – including grape varieties, the geography and climate of a vineyard and the decisions made by a winery during the winemaking process. How do these wines make us feel on a personal level? Do some excite the palate more than others?

We have a friendly environment at all our courses and welcome people of all levels of wine knowledge to each course.

What you will learn:
Learn about the basics of wine.
Learn how to recognise the basic structure of wine and terms associated
Learn more about your own palate and what makes it respond differently
Learn a little about the history of each varietal
Leave feeling confident in ordering something different for yourself the next time you're out to dinner.

What you will get:
Your very own qualified wine tutor.
A minimum of 7 fantastic wines appropriate for the course.
A venue with great ambience and fun time!

What to bring:
Your enthusiasm!
