Our informal Saturday workshops run at weekends throughout the year. They are interesting, relaxed and ideal for wine-lovers who are looking for a comprehensive overview of the fascinating world of wine.
You will learn to improve your wine-tasting skills and have the opportunity to try wines you may never have considered, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. You will come away with a thorough understanding of the grape varieties used to make wine, the regions in which they are produced and how wine is made and stored. You will also learn about food and wine matching.
We will start at 11.00am with an outline of the day’s events, and an introduction to the tried and trusted, systematic approach to wine tasting.
