Excellent class! Matthew is very knowledgeable and inclusive. Really enjoyed the opportunity to learn about different wine varieties and take the time to really think about what I’m drinking!

I have known Matthew for many years, and have enjoyed his classes. While you increase your wine knowledge through the class, it is not over technical that it becomes scary. You can enjoy your wines, and you can gain knowledge without being threatened. Now that I live in the country, it has been convenient for me to join the classes online. I look forward to the next class.

With the pandemic restrictions, we thought it would be both fun and informative to join Matthew's 'remote' class last Sunday afternoon on 'How to Taste Wine', with a focus on pinot noir. The class was relaxed and informative. We covered the important things - 'colour' , 'nose' and 'taste' . But what was fun was that all the class members had their own bottle of wine and it was interesting to listen to each member describe their wine to the class. Of course, Matthew is very experience and guided everyone as to what they should look for when 'tasting'. All very enjoyable and we would recommend the class to others ! POD & Olivia
