ONLINE COURSE Wines of Eastern Europe and South America
Wines of Eastern Europe and South America with Jonny
Following the success of our first online tastings in April and May we are running another series of online tastings but this time based on the regions that came up as being of interest and popular with people joining us online in April - Eastern Europe and South America.
In this fun online course Jonny shares his knowledge and wine stories with you as he looks at some of his favourite wine styles from these two areas of the wine world. Some will be familiar to you, some less so. We have put together a great selection of wines (specially discounted for us) so that you can taste the wines along with Jonny each week.
** When you book your place we will email you with joining instructions and a link for you to purchase the 12 bottle taster case. Please order the wine by Wed 27th May in order to get the case delivered in time. **
This online wine course is based on Eastern Europe and South America. Wines tasted will come from the following countries:
Eastern Europe - Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Georgia, Lebanon (bit of a stretch but allows us to have a delicious Eastern Med red)
South America - Chile, Argentina, Uruguay
We will be taste some lovely wines made from the following grapes: Furmint, Gruner Veltliner, Zweigelt, Blaufrankish, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Carmenere, Tannat and more

Together the wine and the online course fee comes in at just £25 (or less with free delivery) per evening based on 2 people. Plus you get to keep the rest of the bottle for each. Remember that the online fee is per computer sign up so you can have two or more people enjoying the course and the wines.
Join Jonny as he talks about different wine regions and wine styles each week and brings them to life for you with a series of images and anecdotes. He will host each tasting session live at 7pm over 4 consecutive Thursdays. Each tasting session will last for approx 45 minutes. Unable to commit to each evening? We are recording each tasting session so you can watch and review them later on.
Each evening, we will also be tasting three wines that are representative of the styles discussed during that evening's session. A case of each wine covered throughout the course (12 in total) will be available to order for anyone signing up for the course. You don't have to drink all of the bottle for the three wines we taste each session of course. A simple wine preservation device like a vacuum or blanket system will keep your wine fresh for a day or two more.
As this is a live online tasting only one place needs to be booked per computer or tablet.
Please note that you can also join us for two nights rather than four nights if more convenient by buying a sign up and 6 bottle case for the Wines of Eastern Europe and Wines of South America as mini courses separately. Please contact us if you want to do this.
