These 4-week courses are run over four consecutive week nights and allow us to take a closer look at the wines we taste and regions we visit. We may compare 2 different regions so that we can appreciate, compare and contrast different styles of wine. Or we may have an in depth look at different wine styles and taste and contrast these styles from around the world.
No previous experience is needed. The emphasis is on learning by tasting different varieties of wine. It is also a great way to meet new friends who share your love of wine. You will soon learn which wines you like, and where to buy them.
Please Note: There is an additional charge (in addition to the Course Fee of £55) of £10 per evening to cover the wine costs (this works out at approximately £23.75 per evening, usual cost if you booked on a single evening is £25.00 per evening). Not applicable on the 4-week beginners course as the charge is already included in the course price.
