Full Event Description:
When you arrive you will be greeted with a glass of Champagne served with canapes and you will have the chance to meet and get to know other guests.
During the morning you will get to grips with the basics of wine including how to taste. Your professionally qualified wine tutor will then guide you through the 1st tasting of the day, a selection of white wines from traditional old world countries and the new world. Expect to sample some well known wines from France, Germany and Spain as well as some great wines from new world countries such as New Zealand and Australia.
At about 12.30 lunch will be served in The Haywards Room.
The afternoon starts again at 2pm where we start to explore red wines. Again, famous wines from Bordeaux, Chianti and Rioja will be compared and contrasted with wines from the new world. How does classic wine from France compare to wine from Australia, South Africa or Argentina?
We will finish as all meals should, with a sweet wine accompanied by some blue cheese, at around 4.00pm.
Our Saturday course is suitable for complete beginners as it offers a thorough introduction to wine but is equally suited to those with a little bit of wine knowledge, as with 12 wines to explore there will be something new for everyone.
