ONLINE 2 Week South of France Wine Holiday
South of France Wines with Jonny - A two week French wine tasting ‘holiday’!
With travel plans up the spout, or on hold at the very least, we are bringing you a two week virtual wine tasting ‘holiday’ in the sunny South of France. Over the course of two Tuesday evenings we’ll take you to the South of France, virtually, to look at the vineyards, villages, markets, beautiful countryside, fascinating history & cultural legacies of the past and taste fantastic, unique wines with great south of France food & wine pairing ideas for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
Having travelled extensively throughout and spend many summers living in the South of France, Jonny is really excited to be sharing his love of the South of France and its wines with you – we’ll bring Provence, Languedoc-Roussillon and the Rhone alive in your house!
What is included:
- A 45 min presentation via a link with great images, photos, video links
- A wine pack of six carefully selected wines, three each evening.
- Food & wine pairing ideas specific to France and foods from the South of France

We'll send you an email with joining instructions for the online tasting a few days before 18th Aug. We are using Clickmeeting which has been working very well for our online tastings since April. No software download needed. As this is a virtual tasting the access is for one computer screen or mobile device or tablet.
If you are tasting along with us you will be opening up to 3 bottles per tasting so we recommend that you use a vacuum system (Vacuvin or similar) or blanket gas preservation system (Coravin or similar) to keep the wines fresh so you can continue to enjoy them over the following days.
No previous wine tasting experience required - just come and join in the fun and develop your knowledge and tasting skills.
See you in the online classroom!
