What’s it all about?

Wine, we all love it, but do we know what it is that we love? The best way to find out is by wine tasting with an expert!

Do you feel nervous or confused when you walk into the bottle shop looking for something new to try? Or when the sommelier hands you the wine list and you have no idea what it is that you’re looking at? Then this is the class for you.

What will we cover?

This beginner’s wine tasting class will take you through the basics of wine.

We’ll be learning about some of the classic grape varietals we all know and love, and some of the varietals we would like to get to know. We’ll also discuss some of the wine regions, as we taste though some wines.

Plus, learn how to taste wine (properly!) and what you’re looking for so you know exactly what it is that you like.
