4 Week Courses £60+
These four week courses in Oxford and Cheltenham allow us to get more up close and personal with the wines we taste and regions we visit. This gives us a chance to take a closer look at a particular wine region, exploring why its styles have developed the way they have. Or we may compare 2 different areas (e.g. France versus New World) so we can appreciate, compare and contrast different styles of wine.
These courses are suitable for all levels of wine knowledge, even the absolute beginner. Always friendly and informal, and a great way of meeting like-minded wine lovers!
Please Note: There is an additional charge (in addition to the course deposit of £60 or £70) of £10 per evening. This does NOT apply to the Beginner's Course, which has an all-inclusive fee of £95.
One of our 4-Week Wine Courses also makes a great Gift idea for any occasion!
