Live Tasting: 20th November, 8PM live, or on catch-up
We host a tasting show which you can watch live, if you order before mid-day on 15th November, or watch on YouTube afterwards at your convenience.
Australia! Amazing scenery, unique wildlife, average rugby and cricket. However, sometimes when we think about Australia wine, a very small range of styles come to mind - a lot of the time that means over-oaked Chardonnay, or jammy Shiraz. That makes the wombats sad!
In this varietal Masterclass we are going to explore 'Alternative Australia', looking at regions, grapes and styles of wine that are not always the first to jump off the wine shop shelf, or to be recommended in restaurants. So lets take a trip down under, take these pre-conceived notions, turn them on their head and see what an amazing range Australia has to offer!
Our tasting packs contain SIX wines of 100ml samples, perfect for two to share.
Live or on catch-up video after the event.
The Adventurer Series
Our Adventurer Series is perfect for people who feel they know their way around a wine shop, but want to take the next step and explore the differences a great winemaker can have on a wine, learn about lesser-known grapes and find the hidden value around the world.
You'll probably already know the common grape varieties and have some favourite regions, but this remains a great fun, approachable course. We'll explain what the different terms you'll find on a label are, how to taste like a pro, and learn how to master a restaurant wine list! We'll also teach you about food pairings and why things work so well together (or don't!).
Based at the Wine and Spirit Education Trust's Level 2/3 point, this is a great way to take your appreciation of wine to the next level, to demystify wine, to build confidence in choosing wines and to discover some incredible new wines that you may never have even considered before.
We'll teach you all about how these wines are made, what makes them special and we'll highlight a few of the things to watch out for in the wine world and you will have a great time too as it's a mix of entertainment and education!
On this advanced level course, we also introduce a winemaking or grape-growing concept every month.
Either join our LIVE and interactive online tasting (around 90 minutes) where you can ask your own questions, or watch the recording at your own pace, whenever and wherever is convenient for you.
