One Day Introduction to Wine Tasting

  • Hill Street Design House 3 Hill Street Edinburgh UK (map)

The perfect introduction to wine tasting……relaxed and fun! This one day course is guaranteed to leave you feeling confident when you next pick up a restaurant wine list and introduce you to new grapes by giving you a greater understanding of different varieties, key regions around the world and the effect of climate and wine making on style.

We will look at the world’s most important and popular grape varieties and examine the countries, regions and climates they are grown in. We will also learn how to taste and what to look for when choosing wines, as well as some food and wine pairing.

We will begin the day in The Front Room at the Hill Street Design house, followed by a late lunch with wine at The Wee Restaurant to put your new found skills to the test! This course will be supported by power point slides and we recommend the use of spittoons (which will be provided) up until lunchtime as there will be a lot of wines to be sampled throughout the day!

This would make the perfect gift for the wine lover in your life or special treat to yourself!

Tea and coffee on arrival
4 hour (with breaks) Introduction to Wine Tasting course including 10 wines
Glass of fizz at the end of the course
