Fine Wine Appreciation - passionate, independent wine education

Fine Wine Appreciation has been running for over 15 years in Melbourne, conducted by respected wine expert Matthew Hansen. As a highly acclaimed professional chef and educator, Matthew’s personable style and passionate approach ensures all those with a love of fine wine will benefit from his unique and insightful perspectives. 

Most importantly, Matthew is Melbourne’s only completely independent educator, and not affiliated with any specific wineries, wine merchant or makers – all wines featured in his courses are offered on merit alone. Fine Wine Appreciation does not accept industry favours, and does not sell wine to participants.

29 November 2020 • Winemaker's Dinners at the French Saloon

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at The French Saloon in Hardware Lane, Melbourne CBD, on Friday evening. Mathew was a welcoming host to this intimate fine wine appreciation dinner and wine tasting. Ron Laughton from Jasper Hill Vineyard presented his wonderful wines before each course. Ron selected vintages of each wine from both 2009 and 2019, and explained the differences and characteristics well. All were outstanding wines. The company was delightful, and interesting. Thanks to all who attended.
