8 Week World Tour of Wine
The 8-week World of Wine Tour is designed as a practical introduction to the world of wine!
Structured for people who enjoy wine. No previous experience necessary, the emphasis is on learning by tasting different wines.
Also, a great way to meet new friends who share your love of wine. You will soon learn which wines you like and where to buy them.
This 8-week Course can also be purchased as a great Gift Idea for any occasion.
Facebook review June 2018 by Paul "I’ve just completed the 8 week world wine tasting course (a treat to my wife & I as an anniversary present). The tutors, Sam & Sherry are both very passionate about wine & the course is both enjoyable & educational. Give it a whirl, there’s far worse ways to spend an eve in EC3"
