SATURDAY Course + Lunch + Champagne £90
INCLUDES SABRAGE DEMONSTRATION!
Wine Tasting days on a weekend, 11am-4pm, including a glass of Champagne and a delicious 2-course lunch!
Passionate about wine? Want to try a wide variety of wines and learn about new grape varieties? Or discover which wines pair best with certain foods? Saturday courses are suitable for everyone. If you haven't had any previous wine tasting experience, you will feel completely at home, and with 13 great wines to explore even experienced tasters will learn something new. Starting with a welcoming glass of Champagne, we taste whites and rosés in the morning and red wines in the afternoon.
In OXFORD, our Wine Tasting days take place in the private function room upstairs at Arbequina, at 74 Cowley Road. "Tapas heaven" is how many have described this new (well, fairly new, opened in 2017) bistro at the central end of the Cowley Road - don't be fooled by the "Neville Dispensing Chemist" sign, you are in the right place (they uncovered this old shop sign while renovating!). As well as a delicious savoury tapas lunch, we enjoy a custard tart and coffee before resuming our wine tasting in the afternoon.
In CHELTENHAM, our Wine Tasting days take place at the elegant Hotel du Vin, on Parabola Road, Cheltenham. Located in fashionable Montpellier, it is within walking distance of the train station and close to the centre of town. We have our own private dining room and the chefs at the hotel produce a delicious 2 course lunch for us with coffee afterwards.

“Good fun" "Did the one day course yesterday in Cheltenham...always a good way to start a day with champagne at 11.00! Nick has an encyclopaedic knowledge of wine, but this course relates to wines you can purchase easily, advises on price, food pairings, and you get a delicious home-made lunch. Tip top day, thoroughly recommended"
"Great idea" "Brilliant way to spend a Saturday...We started with champagne, then tasted 6 different white wines - interesting and challenging. A 2 course lunch (excellent!)… accompanied by some of our wines, of course. Nick really knows his stuff, and is engaging and informative - it's a chat, rather than a lecture, but you come away learning so much about your taste…"
