50 percent off at the Connoisseur Wine SchoolWhat is it?
From just £19.50 for an expert introduction to the world of wine from one of the most highly-regarded names in the business.
Most people would love to know a bit more about the big – and let’s face it, pretty daunting – world of wine, but where do you start? Well, here might be a pretty good place. Run by Margaret Silbermann (she’s a pretty big deal in all things vino), the Connoisseur Wine School will lead you through tastings of some of the best quality wines available right now. You’ll learn typical characteristics of grapes and regions, insights into production, which drops go with what food, techniques on how to actually taste wine and some awesome hints and tips on getting great bang for your buck when it comes to buying the stuff. So whether you’re bored with drinking the same old wines or you simply want some whip-smart comebacks when snooty sommeliers sniff at your bottle of choice, this course will give you all the tools you need. Check out the three classes below.
Saturday Introductory wine course
Everything you ever wanted to know about wine but were to shy to ask all the questions.
Tasting 14 wines you will learn how wine is made, how to taste it, good value for money and which dishes to serve it with.
Saturday Wines of the World Wine Course
A trip around the world to classic wine-growing regions. You’ll sample 14 different wines and learn all about the difference between old- and new-world wines.
You’ll be able to answer everything from why are there three colours of wine and why are some sweet and others dry to why do some have bubbles and why do some taste spicy and some smokey? All explained as you sample six delicious wines.
Know Your Classic Grape Varieties
An exploration of six classic grapes, such as chardonnay, chenin, riesling, sauvignon, pinot noir, merlot, syrah and cabernet sauvignon. You’ll discover how to tell them apart and how they determine styles of wine.
