'I've been feeling like something's missing from my life on Tuesdays since the course ended!' (Rio, 8-Week Course Attendee, April 2012)
'I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for the 8 week course in Leeds. I loved every evening and thought you pitched the class and just the right level, it was brilliant. Reckon a few friends / family members will be attending a class in the not to distant future, I get bombarded with questions every time we meet up.' (David, 8-Week Course Attendee, July 2012)
'I just wanted to say thank you so much for the 8 week course I attended earlier this year. It was a lot of fun, and I clearly talked a lot about it as my wife has now bought me the 4 week French course, so I will be seeing you again soon!' (Grant, 8-Week Course Attendee, Sept 2012)

Each week we will examine how different grape varieties, different climates and local wine-making techniques impact on the aromas and flavours of the wine. Through practice and our guidance you will learn how to identify the wine's characteristics for yourself; we show you how to taste and appraise wine like a professional. We believe that the best aide to learning about wine is the process of tasting and comparing for yourself; that is exactly what you will have the chance to do, in our relaxed and informal setting.
Please Note: There is a charge for the cost of the wine (in addition to the £105 course fee) of £10 per evening payable on the night. Great value - the cost of the course is still under £23.50 per evening.
