WEEK 1   Learn the skill of Wine Tasting
You will discover  the ‘systematic approach’ to wine tasting through using pairs of wines carefully selected to show opposite characteristics and styles. You will learn about all the key building blocks of taste ‘including fruit, sweetness, acidity and tannin.

WEEK 2   White Wines around the World
You will taste a diverse range of whites wines and will learn about the effects of oak, soil and climate on the taste of each wine. You will also understand how Chardonnay can be the best and worst grape variety in the world!

WEEK 3   Red Wines around the World
We start with Bordeaux styles from around the world made from the famous Cabernet/Merlot blend. Bordeaux used to be unchallenged as the finest region for red in the world.  The second half of the tasting looks at other key grapes including Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo and Grenache.

WEEK 4  Sparkling Wine & Champagne
Champagne is probably the most famous wine in the world, but does it really live up to the hype? We taste the real thing, some of its imitators and and other exciting sparkling wines that are not trying to be Champagne at all!

Nick’s Level 1 course was outstanding!

Although many of us had different levels of knowledge and experience with wine, we all enjoyed participating in the course and felt that we learned a great deal of content and confidence through Nick’s instruction. Nick’s considerable wine making knowledge and experience as well as his practical guidance helped us to work through evaluating various aspects of each wine.

At the end of the course, we all agreed that the course was excellent, Nick was a fantastic instructor, and that we looked forward to Level 2!
