4 Week Wine Courses
Our 4-week South London wine courses, based at our venue in Greenwich, are designed for anyone who would like to get to know a particular region or wine style in more depth. The 4 different tasting evenings take place on consecutive weeks, from 7-9pm. Each wine tasting will include at least 6 different wines and will cover how to taste as well as key facts about the region. Sometimes we compare different regions to appreciate and contrast their typical styles of wine: alternatively, we take a closer look at the diversity of wines from specific parts of the world.
