Can’t tell a Shiraz from a Merlot?

Unsure of your Chablis?

Is it pronounced ‘key-an-tee’ or ‘chee-ant-ee’?

What the heck does ‘vintage’ mean?…

If you’re answering yes to any of the above questions, we have the answers!

Come and join us Saturday afternoon, on the 8TH of December, between 3 and 5pm and discover everything you wanted to know about wine, but were too afraid to ask.

We’ll take you through the basics, giving you insights along the wine production trail from the vines themselves, right the way through to bottling and cellaring.

Along the way we will de-mystify the wine tasting & purchasing process and familiarise you with the wine tasting vocabulary you’ll no doubt be perplexed by, leaving you with a much needed confidence boost in the world of wine!

During the two hour class, you’ll discover:

  • how wine is made, from selecting planting sites for the vines, to bottling

  • how ‘terroir’ effects the wine

  • what the heck ‘terroir’ is, and how to pronounce it

  • learn how to translate wine tasting terminology

  • learn the major factors between old world & new world wine

  • how to match wine with food, and why it works
