Liz and Peter from London
Who would have thought that sweet wine and apple work so well together! Our tutor was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. I am looking forward to organising my next dinner party so I can show off my new skills when it’s time to bring out the cheese board. Thank you London Wine Academy!
