He has been Panel Chairman at competitions including The International Wine Challenge in London and Radici Competition in Italy.

Acclaimed for his knowledge and effortless style, Tom is regularly called upon to present masterclasses to both consumers and the wine trade across the UK. Now, his online events mean that anyone, anywhere can join in and learn from one of the world’s great wine communicators.

Online Tastings

Our tastings and courses are relaxed and fun, but taught with real expertise by award-winning wine writer and presenter, Tom Cannavan.

Using Zoom, each tasting comes with Tom’s expert tuition, notes, and a case of accompanying wines sourced from independent UK wine merchants. These are interactive, quality tastings where discussion and questions are encouraged, and if you miss a session we’ll send you a complete recording to catch-up at your leisure.
