Saturday Introduction to Wine Course with Lunch in Leeds
Our ever-popular Introduction To Wine Tasting is now being hosted at Ham & Friends; the restaurant, wine bar and shop from the team behind Friends of Ham! We are delighted to have moved in to our brand new home on Merrion St, above the beautful new Wine Bar and Shop, at Ham & Friends. Since the opening, the team downstairs have been busying themselves putting together a brand new Kitchen and Restaurant, headed up by head chef Joel Monkman. Now that restaurant is open, we are moving our luxurious all-day introduction to wine tasting to our new Wine School home and we'll be indulging in the delicious food as part of our day of wine tasting. What could be better?
So what can you expect to learn as part of our day of wine tasting? We'll cover how wine is made, how to taste wine by identifying aromas and flavours, we'll discuss how and why the same grape variety can produce very different wines when grown in different climates, we'll talk about 'Old World vs New World', learn how to pair wine with food perfectly, discover new grape varieties as well as finding out a little more about your current favourites, pick up our tips on where to buy wine and learn to decipher the terms on wine labels. Once you've been on this wine course, you'll be the envy of your friends thanks to your new-found knowledge and confidence with wine!
