Really enjoyed Matthew's class. Very knowledgable, a great teacher and a great story teller. Had a variety of wines that we hadn't tried before, good food, great company and we both no longer feel like complete novices when picking a good wine. I have already tested out what I learnt last night over dinner! Highly recommended!!

The Fine Wine Appreciation course done over two nights was extremely informative, but more importantly highly enjoyable. Matthew's knowledge and stories were really entertaining, and the wines he showed were all first class, making this course such great value for money. Can't recommend this course highly enough and I'll definitely be trying some of the other events with Matthew.
