During this online 6-week Tuesday evening course run by experienced tutor Paula Goddard - also known as @wineuncorkeduk on Twitter and Instagram - you’ll taste, learn and discuss wines made from various grape varieties and distinguish wines made in different regions around the world. You’ll also learn how to choose wines at a restaurant, why red wines taste dry and white wines sharp, why rosé wine is pink and how to find aromas and flavours in wines. At the end of this course you’ll have the knowledge and confidence to choose and buy wines you enjoy.
This course is for anyone with an interest in wine. No prior knowledge is required. The cost of wine is not covered by the course fee and you will need to purchase the two wines to be covered at each session - expect to spend between £5.00 and £12.00 a bottle. These will not be specific wines from a specific retailer but wines that can be found in many places and at various prices. A list of suggested wines will be provided along with places to purchase – both online and locally - on booking the course.
For the first session you'll need to bring along two wines if you can - a white wine made with the Riesling grape (labelled ‘Riesling’, from any country) and a red wine from Spain. If you can't get these then try to get a red and a white wine from the same country. If you can only get one wine or none at all, then come along anyway!
The course will break for the school half-term and so there will be no class on 16th February 2021.
