We currently host our Edinburgh Wine Tasting days at the Apex Hotel (Grassmarket). Choose from 'World of Wine', 'Old World', or 'New World' Wine Tasting Workshops. Our Wine-Tasting Days in Edinburgh makes the perfect gift for the wine lover!
A great 'all rounder' Wine-Tasting Course. You'll look at wine in a whole new way...as well as sniffing and tasting it! While tasting 15 wines you'll learn how region, climate, winemaking techniques and many other factors affect the final wine in the bottle. You'll learn about many of the major wines from around the world and the key characteristics of each. This course will set you in the right direction to finding the wines you enjoy, choosing wines on restaurant wine lists and before you know it you'll have caught the wine bug and want to learn more! If you are looking for Things to Do in Edinburgh - then join us for all this and much more in a fun and informative 1 Day Wine Tasting Workshop.
