Champagne Tasting: Tunbridge Wells
"I recently attended the blind champagne tasting class. Jonny who runs the class is very informative and keeps it fun with interesting facts. You get a lot of champagne for your money and for 2 hours it is good value. You also get some nice nibbles and cheese. I would recommend this tasting for wine enthusiasts or to buy as a gift for someone." Anka M
