What do you teach in the courses?
Our courses are aimed at allowing you to discover what you like and why you like it. This is in order to give you confidence when ordering/buying your next bottle of wine.
Thus the focus of our courses is on understanding varietal profiles and regional characteristics. In doing so we will cover a number of topics including:
- How to taste wine
- Identifying specific flavours and aromas
- Food and wine matching
- Understanding wine quality
- Tips on ordering/serving
- Trends in wine
- Wine making techniques
What's the difference between the courses?
The 2 week Introductory course assumes no prior knowledge or tasting experience. It is perfect for anyone just starting their journey with wine.
The 4 week and One Day courses are presented by Rob Geddes MW.
These courses follow a shared format with the 4 week course run over 4 consecutive Wednesdays, whilst the One Day course is run over 6 hours on a Saturday.
These courses are always extremely popular and are fantastic for anyone who has a little knowledge and wants to further their journey with wine.
