This course is intended for people who want to learn about a wide range of wines and wine growing regions of the world. During our course you’ll discover all about key wine regions, grape varieties and main types and styles of wine.

It’s ideal for everyone from the newbie who wants to gain a better understanding of wine world to seasoned wine lover who wants to brush up their knowledge. You will explore the ‘systematic approach’ to wine tasting and discover the factors that impact style and quality. By the end of the course you will be more confident when tasting wine, have an added insight when selecting wines (will know what to look for in a wine) and know the key characteristics of the major wine regions.
