You bring the questions; I’ll bring the wine. In this tasting you’ll learn what blind tasting is and how to do it; how to sound like an expert when talking about wine; and answers to anything vinous you can think of. My one rule: there is no such thing as a silly question!

What to expect

I may take wine a little more seriously than most but I still like to have fun when tasting it. My sessions are educational, interactive and a little bit irreverent*. Each session is limited to 15 people and we'll taste five wines over about 1.5 hours. If you’re the note-taking type then bring a pen.

We taste all wines blind – to allow us to really focus on what we're tasting (but there's always a big unveiling at the end). Come prepared to be surprised, delighted and to learn something you never knew about wine!

*I don't have many rules when it comes to wine tasting, but please no strong-smelling perfume, cologne, hair products, etc.
