REVIEW: "I came on my own to the course, a present from my daughter, but within minutes of arrival was chatting away with my neighbors 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
