ONLINE COURSE Summer Wines
We have been blessed with some wonderful Spring weather this year. Long may it continue. Summer is a time of al fresco dining, friends and family round for barbecues, outdoor parties and celebrations. The foods are lighter and seasonal - salads, soft fruit, squashes and herbs and grilled food. Drinks are chilled with ice and the air is warm.
This fantastic online course explores some of the best wine styles for summer drinking over four tastings. Maybe you can join the tastings from an outdoor space with a glass in hand!
We have selected a delicious range of wines from good producers for this course. Wines that we will be tasting and talking about on the course:
Week 1 - Ruggeri Argeo Prosecco Brut (Gold Medal) £9.95, Kir-Yianni Akakies Xinomavro Rosé 2018 £12.50, Chivite Family Estates Finca Legardeta Seleccion Especial 2015 £14.95

The usual price of £154.20 for the tasting case has been discounted to only £129.95 exclusively for this package.
We send you food and wine pairing suggestions each week so that you can get into the spirit as we taste and nibble together and learn a bit about wine at the same time. This has proved to be a very popular part of the tastings.

The optional taster case selected by us to accompany the course contains 12 x full sized 75cl bottles (3 sparkling, 3 white, 3 rose and 3 red wines) and is priced at specially discounted £129.95 inc VAT with FREE DELIVERY for UK mainland addresses. We recommend that you place your wine order by Thurs 25th June to give plenty of time for the case to arrive.
Simply book your spaces if you want to participate and we'll send you a link for ordering the wines as well as our joining instructions for the online tasting. We use the Clickmeeting platform and this works best using a latop or Macbook and the latest version of Chrome, Edge or Safari.. No software download needed.
As this is a virtual tasting the access is for one computer screen or mobile device or tablet.
You will be opening 3 bottles for each tasting so we recommend that you use a vacuvin or gas preservation system so that you can carry on enjoying the wines for 2-3 days after the tasting.
No previous wine tasting experience required - just come and join in the fun and develop your knowledge and tasting skills.
See you in the online classroom!
