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
