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 at least 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! All this and much more in a fun and informative 1 Day Wine Tasting Workshop.
