What Can I Expect
Swirl that glass and sniff those delicate aromas like a pro when you learn about the greatness of grapes on a one day wine course! Most of us have to admit, when you're in a posh restaurant and the sommelier pours a drop of your chosen wine to taste test, you kind of make it up as you go along and you just nod appreciatively. Well, after your day out on a wine course, you will know just what to do next time.
These full day wine tasting courses take place at various venues around the UK, in suitably relaxing and inviting venues in which to taste and learn about wine. The team running the courses is enthusiastic and knowledgeable, aiming to offer informal events that are a far cry from the rather stuffy classes you can come across. After all, wine education classes are meant to inform you, but in fun way.
All tutors and hosts on these one day wine courses are WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) qualified and experienced wine presenters. These wine experts are adept at finding vintages from every single corner of the wine producing world (it’s their job and passion!). During the tasting course, you'll be sampling up to 18 different tipples, including wines selected to complement your three course luncheon that's included in the experience.
You'll go in-depth into wines on these daytime wine courses. There’s plenty of time to discuss the age-old question of whether single variety or blended is better, spotting faults and how to rectify them (who knew that was possible?) as well as the pinnacle for wine buffs - how to order a good bottle in a restaurant with confidence.
You are in for a great experience learning about the world of wine one your one day wine course. Oh and there is plenty of opportunity for you to pose your wine questions throughout the course, so go on, ask away. The challenge is to find one that these wine-loving experts won't be able answer, be it about New World reds, storing white wines, or what grapes are used to produce a refreshing rosé.
