The Deal

A course of five wine tasting lessons (usually £279) will see students learning the key flavour elements; fruit, sweetness, acidity, tannin and alcohol. Initially, they'll learn the fundamentals behind tasting techniques, while each session will feature plenty of practice slurping. One week will be dedicated to white wines, and another to reds, with clients sampling different grapes and studying their various characteristics. A look at bubblies and Champagnes will help students learn to tell the difference, while the final week can unearth the mysteries behind ports and sherries, and how to choose a great pairing for dessert wines. Guests have the option to leave with a set of six ISO wine tasting glasses so they can practice their new found skills.

Choose from the following options:

  • £125 for a five week level one introductory wine tasting course (55% off)

  • £144 for a five week level one introductory wine tasting course with a set of six wine tasting glasses (48% off)
