One-day Introductory Wine School, Saturday 29th January 2022


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. You’ll be encouraged to 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’ll look at the key grape varieties and their regions. You’ll learn to trust your intuitions – and you may discover that you know far more than you gave yourself credit for. The morning tutorial is followed by a superb four-course food and wine-matching luncheon, during which you’ll have the chance to practice your newfound skills.

One Day Wine School

One Day Wine School

Our one-day wine schools are a great way to get a thorough overview of a region in a day.

Starting in the morning with tea and coffee on arrival, we spend around 2 hours exploring the region, with 8-12 wines showcasing all different styles. With the basics covered, we head to our vaulted Napoleon cellar for an aperitif and to put the morning’s education to the test with 5 more wines paired over a delicious lunch, crafted by Head Chef Stewart Turner.

The day finishes around 3.30pm.
