Fine Wine Appreciation - passionate, independent wine education

Fine Wine Appreciation has been running for over 15 years in Melbourne, conducted by respected wine expert Matthew Hansen. As a highly acclaimed professional chef and educator, Matthew’s personable style and passionate approach ensures all those with a love of fine wine will benefit from his unique and insightful perspectives. 

Most importantly, Matthew is Melbourne’s only completely independent educator, and not affiliated with any specific wineries, wine merchant or makers – all wines featured in his courses are offered on merit alone. Fine Wine Appreciation does not accept industry favours, and does not sell wine to participants.

Really fun way to learn more about wine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Good value for money! Food and company delightful.

Matthew was excellent and this is a great experience. The small group interaction was a perfect size and I would highly recommend this for yourself or for a gift for anyone who adores wine.

I found this wine appreciation evening enjoyable, although I felt a little out of my depth. The other participants were seasoned wine buffs with the language to explain their thoughts on the 6 wines tasted. I would like to attend an introductory course to understand the terminology in greater depth. Enjoying wine and being able to explain what characteristics you enjoy/don't enjoy are two separate skills. Yes, I would recommend the Advanced Class/Single Session provided you have previous knowledge of the vernacular.
