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.
