WORLD WINE TOUR WORKSHOP WITH A 3 COURSE LUNCH AND 16 WINES
FOR ONLY £90 PER PERSON, OR £85 EACH FOR 2 OR MORE.
This One Day World Wine Tour Workshop will be a relaxed day spent immersed in fine wines, in a fun environment – suitable for anyone from beginner to enthusiast. 16 wines will be tasted throughout the day, including wines with lunch.
Those of you who have been to any of my other events will know that I am far removed from a ‘wine bore’. You will taste 16 very fine wines, and learn a lot about wine, but in a relaxed and informal way, and have a lot of fun doing it!
Included is a 3-course lunch with matching wines, which will be very welcome after a morning of wine tasting!
How to taste wine – The way the experts do
Old World vs New World styles
The major grape varieties, illustrated by fine wines from around the world
Why some wines cost more than others, and how to tell the difference
Wine and food matching
Blind tastings to test your new knowledge
As well as any other topics you want to ask about (as long as they are wine-related).
Your presenter Gilbert is a fully qualified WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) tutor, but he likes to have as much fun with wine as possible, so the day is not academic, but presented in an informal and humorous style. You’ll leave with a smile on your face, plus you will know a lot more about wine than when you started!
Any questions, please call Gilbert on 07957 898215, or email him at [email protected]
