Recent 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. 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. 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.
