The Wine Course

Tuesday 17th November to 15th December

  • Ever wondered exactly how Champagne is made?
  • Want to know how much wine a single vine can produce?
  • Did you know white wine can be made from black grapes?
  • Ever struggled over wine and food matching?
  • Do you know what egg whites and clay have to do with winemaking?
As the nights draw in, here’s a chance to enhance your wine knowledge and wine tasting skills. Our course will run over five Tuesday evening sessions, from 7pm – 8pm. The ticket price of £75 covers all sessions and is per household, not per person, and includes a full pack of supporting documentation. We’ll open a wine each night as part of our tasting practice.

You are welcome to attend without buying the accompanying wines, and if you miss any session we will send you a recording to catch-up in your own time.

Wine Communicator of the Year, journalist and international wine judge, Tom will lead this comprehensive course that is perfect for those taking their early steps in wine appreciation, but will have sufficient depth to provide a useful ‘refresher course’ for those already bitten by the wine bug. The course fee is per household, so family and friends are free to attend together.

Online wine courseA case of six wines chosen by Tom to accompany the weekly theme will cost £67 and will also provide the tasting practice to match the theory. Hone your tasting skills as we progress through the course.

Week by week the course notes will build into a comprehensive reference for you to keep, and you will be presented with a completion certificate at the end of the course. Also, you will receive an exclusive discount voucher to use against one of Tom’s future online tastings.

The five weeks will cover:
