ABOUT THIS COURSE

WHY SHOULD I JOIN THE BEGINNERS ONE DAY WINE COURSE?

Join us on the BEGINNERS ONE DAY WINE COURSE at Camino Bankside.
Want to know more about wine but overwhelmed by the choice on offer? Intimidated by some Sommeliers? Bored drinking the same safe wines?

During this BEGINNERS ONE DAY WINE COURSE you will compare, contrast and discover wines from around the world; improve your tasting skills and take home practical tips for Wine and Food Matching. One of the most enjoyable ways to develop your senses and spend time with like minded people!

You will be introduced to the tools of wine tasting to help you understand the structure and nuances of any wine that you taste. All wines are tasted “blind” so that you learn to judge quality by tasting the wine in the glass and not just by its label.

You will also taste exciting wine styles and grape varieties to help you discover new wines to buy and why you like the wines that you currently enjoy.

Our professional and passionate experts will pass on insider tips to help you navigate the pitfalls of buying wine in shops or restaurants, giving you more confidence and success when entertaining clients or friends.

WHO IS THIS COURSE AIMED AT?

This is a friendly and personal Introduction to Wine Tasting and no previous experience is necessary.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

  • Through swirling, sniffing, sipping and spitting, all wines are tasted blind. This will help you to judge the quality of any wine through tasting and not just by looking at the label or price tag.
  • You will gain the knowledge and ability to choose exciting new wine styles, grape varieties and producers.
  • You will be introduced to the mechanics of wine tasting and the professional approach to wine assessment.
  • Your tutor will pass on insider tips to help you navigate the pitfalls of buying wine for any occasion.

COURSE CONTENT

Explore the main grape varieties and wine styles through mastering the trusted systematic approach to wine tasting. You will learn how to:

  • Evaluate quality
  • Assess ageing potential
  • Match food and wine
  • Explore wine production,
  • Evaluate key contemporary wine styles, grape varieties and regions
  • How to invest and store wine
  • Spot wine faults and how to deal with them
  • Best producers and new stars to look out for

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS COURSE AND THE PREMIUM BEGINNERS WINE COURSE?

The course content is exactly the same. Instead of being hosted at one of our Michelin Star Restaurants or 5 * Hotels, the venues for this course are the carefully selected Gastro Pubs such as the Atlas and relaxed, lively and informal restaurants such as Camino Bankside!

This BEGINNERS 1 DAY WINE TASTING COURSE is excellent value for money!

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!
