Following the successful launch of the first courses in early 2020, Christine and Jim are currently working to develop an online version that can be delivered and that students can book with confidence despite the uncertainty arising from COVID-19.
Following the success of our first online winefair in September, we will be back in December with a slightly different approach.
I have selected 24 x 100ml samples that will be sent to you in secure packaging and preserved with nitrogen gas. These will be blind samples so that you can test your tasting and analysis as you watch videos of my tastings and discussions of them with a student.
The samples I have chosen navigate the main varieties and important regions and also focus on wines that are often confused with each other.
The videos will be available from 12th December and the quality of the samples is guaranteed for 6-8 weeks, so you can take your time exploring them with me. But we have a limited number of packs available.
