What a brilliant evening! I bought the voucher for my partners Christmas present as he wanted to learn more about wine, and the night exceeded both of our expectations. It’s a must for anyone looking to expand their knowledge, and meet some great people.

This wine appreciation class was informative and educational. With tastings of five exceptional wines, with a range of styles, our palates were stimulated and challenged. Our host Matthew has a vast experience with wine and shared many delightful anecdotes. The evening covered all aspects of wine knowledge and every participant came way with an increased knowledge. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of wine.

A very informative session on how to appreciate and understand what you're actually drinking! Highly recommended for anyone who loves to drink wine and has the desire to learn more about each drop :) Matthew Hansen took the time to explain each of the 6 wines on tasting. He made the effort to ensure everyone felt engaged and inclusive in table discussions. Great experience! Vi
