About the course

Join us on the Premium Beginners One Day Wine Course in London at one of our 5 star hotels in Mayfair or St James’s.  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! 10 Wines are tasted during the day and a 3 course gourmet lunch is included.

What will I learn?

  • 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.

FAQ

Whilst the content of the Premium Wine Tasting Course is identical to the Classic Wine Tasting Course, the Premium Beginners Workshop offers a 3 – course lunch with premium wines during the day.  A mix of contemporary, classic and up and coming wines are selected by the tutor for the day. Our venues are very exclusive small Boutique Hotels, in St James’s or Mayfair.

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