Matthew's wine classes are a revelation to both beginners and the more experienced wine buffs! Matthew has a wealth of knowledge about wine and is ever ready to impart his knowledge in a manner which is accessible, and at times humorous! And the bonus is you get to try some amazing wines, which then spurs you on to your own search for what you have discovered about wine! A great night and recommended to anyone who loves wine! You'll love it even more after these classes or dinners!

Matthew was well prepared, and made everyone comfortable and eager to learn more about wine. He went about doing this in an easy-going, relaxed, and very personal manner. It was a small, diverse group, and we were all included in every aspect of the presentation. I probably expected more wine snobbery, and competitiveness amongst us, but this did not eventuate. Every opinion was worthy of discussion, and respected. Wines selected were well chosen to demonstrate differences, and not intended to bolster reputations. I learned that I did possess a moderately respectable appreciation of wines, which has been enhanced in a delightful, personal setting.
