- about the influence of climate and weather on wine
- what influence oak and other wine-making techniques have on the wine in your glass
- some principles of food and wine matching
- how to choose wine with more confidence: we discuss how to interpret wine labels
All tastings include: minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, use of professional tastings glasses and nibbles.
