"I went from being someone who liked a glass of wine to enjoying the process of choosing and buying it. I love choosing the right bottle to go with a meal I'm cooking and can now do this with confidence"

Wine Event - 'Australian Night' - Thursday 27th May
 

Ian Abrahams will be presenting 5 wines at this one-off event.  This is an opportunity to taste wines that are a little more expensive and meet others who are interested in wine and have completed one of our courses at Ashton Learning Centre.
 

We drink more wine from Australia than from any other country, yet how well do we really know their wines? Australia is not just Jacobs Creek – come and see how much more this vast country has to offer! We will discover some of its individual regions and diverse climates and talk about and taste a selection of interesting and distinctive wines from grape varieties both familiar and less familiar.


Thurs Evening 7.00-9.00
Cost: £16



 


Introduction to wine appreciation


This very interesting, informal and informative six week course is aimed at those with little or no previous knowledge about wine, but who want to enjoy their wine more. The sessions will include a guide to tasting wine, an overview of the different styles of wine available and introduce the most common grape varieties - also a few less familiar ones that might become your new favourites. We will also discuss what to buy, what's the best value and where you can get it from and look briefly at food and wine matching. Each evening we will taste 4-5 wines to illustrate the subjects discussed.

Thurs Evenings 7:00 - 9:00pm
6 x 2 hour sessions
Cost: £90 (this includes 4-5 wines each session)
