Wine Training

These are slightly more formal tastings with a short presentation on the chosen theme which may be a country, grape variety or wine style, followed by a tasting of six wines.  There will be a sheet for taking notes and information to take away with you.

Among the courses we have run are:

Sherry - we cover the region, grapes, growing conditions, vinification and styles (including the driest and sweetest of all wines)

Pinot Noir around the World - from classic Burgundy to Oregon USA and Otago in New Zealand

Austria - a country not well known to many; we examine their red and white wines

The Eastern Med - Turkey, Greece and Israel produce great wines; find out more in this fascinating session.

Please let us know if there is a particular subject about which you would like to know more.
