Interested in wine and want to learn more? Do you want to discover fascinating and delicious new wines and grape varieties? Do you want to taste a wide variety of wines and understand what makes them so different ? Do you want to know which wine to drink with what food? Our Saturday Introduction to wine course is the course for you.

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. Jonny is both knowledgeable and a skilled communicator and the wines he had chosen for our tasting were accessible and affordable. 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. Part two presented a variety of reds, again available and affordable. 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." Danny, March 2016
