Saturday courses inc lunch and champagne £95

Want to learn more about wine over a relaxed day course with lunch? Do you want to discover new wines and grape varieties? Do you want to taste a wide variety of wines and understand what makes them so different ? Do you want to know which wine to drink with what food? Then this is the course for you.

REVIEW: "I came on my own to the course, a present from my daughter, but within minutes of arrival was chatting away with my neighbours at the long table. The atmosphere was all eager anticipation and light hearted. Jonny is both knowledgeable and a skilled communicator and the wines he had chosen for our tasting were accessible and affordable. I was soon surprised by how much I was learning about assessing and appreciating the half dozen white wines we sampled before lunch. Lunch itself was a very sociable affair. Part two presented a variety of reds, again available and affordable. We learned so much and enjoyed the process. I recommend this course to anyone who likes the odd glass of wine, it is both informative and a lovely way to spend a Saturday." 

The day starts with a glass of champagne as we chat about how to get bubbles into wine and continues through a series of white and red wines. The day includes a delicious two course lunch with a glass of rose.
