8 Week Intro Wine Course £105 LEEDS

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wine!

The 8-week World of Wine Course is designed as a practical introduction to the world of wine. It is structured for people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more about it in a fun and relaxed environment. You need no previous experience – the emphasis is on learning by your own experience of tasting the different varieties of wine. It is also a great way to meet new friends who share your enjoyment of wine. 

We also hold the 8-week World of Wine Course in Sheffield: Click Here For Details

 This 8-week Course can also be purchased as a great gift idea- perfect for birthdays and special anniversaries!

'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.
