8 Week World of Wine Courses
The Eight-week World of Wine Course is designed as a practical introduction to the world of wine. It is designed for people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more in a fun and relaxed environment. You need no previous experience – the emphasis is on learning by tasting different wine styles with friendly people. It is also a great way to meet new friends who share your enjoyment of wine and provides a springboard for all of our other courses and tastings.
"Excellent presentation, friendly atmosphere - I learned a lot" (Attendee on 8-week course)
