Students are taught in a practical environment with different styles of wine used, including white wine, rosé wine, red wine, sparkling wine, sweet wine and fortified wine.

By the end of this wine course you will have built a sound knowledge of wine and a more discerning palate by focusing on the tasting and key steps of winemaking. Over the series of evening classes, you will have the opportunity to learn from some of the best wine professionals in a lively, friendly, but studious atmosphere where students are encouraged to actively participate in the discussions.
