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.

14 February 2018 • Advanced Wine Class

Long term participant in Matthew's wine classes, hope to be for a long time yet. Fascinating, professional, very entertaining - you get to taste, explore and ask any questions about wines you may never try otherwise. Great interaction between attendees, and with tutor. AAA+++


20 November 2017 • Winemaker's Dinners at Scopri

Winemakers dinner with Philippa Farr at Scopri. Fantastic evening - the wine and food were superb, and getting the story behind the wines from Philippa added to the interest and insight. Matthew gave perspective as Philippa gave strategy and logistics. The atmosphere was down-to-earth, non-pretentious, and fun. Thank-you!


12 October 2017 • Wine Dinners at Osteria Ilaria

The dinner at Osteria Ilaria was incredible and very informative. Matthew matched the wines perfectly to each dish which enhanced the flavours of both the wine and the food. Would highly recommend.
