16 January 2019 • Beginners Wine Class

Matthew's Beginners' Wine Class was two hours of delightful conversation, informative banter and, of course, stunning wines. Matthew is a wonderful story teller and drew us in with his insight and knowledge. It was an evening of laughter with like-minded patrons, and we all left with a fistful of handy information. Kudos to Matthew in creating an experience which is intimate, joyful, and an in perfect environment, presenting wines which are exquisite to experience.

Excellent evening of wine and company. I enjoy trying wines I would otherwise not think to sample.

We had a great night at the beginners class. I learned a little about a range of wine types. It was fun experiencing the different "fragrances and tastes" of the wines over a period of time and learning how to appreciate their complexities. Matthew made it a fun night and ensured good interaction from all present. Definitely worth the experience and I look forward to learning more and maybe doing a more advanced class. Thanks Matthew
