Spring 2022

I have selected 24 x 100ml samples that will be sent to you in secure packaging and preserved with argon 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 early April  and the quality of the samples is guaranteed until mid-May, so you can take your time exploring them with me. But we have a limited number of packs available.
