One-Day Introductory Wine School, Saturday 23rd November 2019


Our One-Day Introductory Wine School is a relaxed yet educational experience, designed to introduce you to the basics of wine tasting and the classic grape varieties. Your tutor will guide you through different pairs of wines, helping you to compare and contrast them and then think about your observations, linking these to the climate and country where the grapes were grown.

We will cover all the elements in the glass, from acidity through to tannin, alcohol and oak. At the same time, we will look at the key grape varieties and their regions. You’ll learn to trust your intuitions and may discover you know far more than you gave yourself credit for. The morning tutorial is followed by a superb four-course food and wine matching lunch, during which you will have the chance to practise your newfound skills.
