What’s it all about?

When it’s cold outside, we tend to retreat to the indoors, seeking the warm comforts it provides. This generally means, warm, rich and wholesome food, and of course, warm and wholesome wine!

Red wine is perfect for cold weather. It holds all the desires we seek: warmth, body and richness that reaches into our very souls. So this winter, try this red wine masterclass which will ensure you are tasting all the soul reaching red wines.

What will we cover?

The class will take you through four different red wines. Each wine will explore a different style, to help you find exactly what it is that you enjoy most. Moreover, each wine will be locally sourced, so you can easily pick up a bottle of your new favourite drop next time you’re at the bottle shop!

You will get:

  • An understanding of how red wine is made
  • A grasp of some different red varietals and styles
  • Wine tasting terms (and how to use them!)
  • Four different tasters of red wine
