Learn how to spot different varieties of wine An ideal course for those more experienced imbibers. A chance to eat food and drink wines from various wine producing regions, develop your taste buds further and discover the secrets of harmonising wines and foods. It’s a great chance to meet like-minded people and taste some lovely culinary delights from Harry’s kitchen. Very friendly and informal and an opportunity for you to give you opinions on some unusual wines – and you’ll taste at least 6 wines each week.
