Yet another wonderful eye-opening (and palate) evening in one of Matthew's classes. The wines chosen were top-notch and the company wonderful, as always. I can't recommend these classes enough, both for the access to actual wines, but for the discussion/instruction as well. Tough to say which is better... The selection of half old world and half Australian wines was excellent to taste the differences in styles.

This was my first ever class and I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I had such a fantastic time, met some lovely people and learned a lot. Our class was quite specific, concentrating only on Pinot Noirs, which I think was a little less overwhelming and gave us a chance to really focus our pallets and attention. All in all, a wonderful evening with fantastic wines, a very knowledgeable teacher and an expanded appreciation for Pinot Noirs. I very much look forwards to my next class.
