Single Sessions are conducted at Dench, 109 Scotchmer Street Fitzroy.
Classes may consist of a vertical or horizontal tasting, a specific wine region or wine style.
Running for approximately two hours classes are always held with a food component designed to compliment the featured wines.
My first class with Matthew....supurb....and looking forward to my next....real soon!
I couldn't recommend The Fine Wine Appreciation classes any more highly. Matthew's classes are the most interactive and enjoyable classes that I have been to. Matthew brings his experience and expertise, but equally importantly, he facilitates the session in a way that involves everyone, and really makes you stop and think about the wines you're tasting. As well as learning about, and tasting, some wonderful wine, the venue, food and atmosphere makes this an evening I always look forward to.
Attended a vertical tasting of Wendouree Shiraz, 2009 thru to 2014 vintages, conducted by Matthew Hansen, a passionate, highly knowledgeable wine educator who has been doing these tutored tastings (limited to ten people) for many years. A wonderful experience on all levels, from the professional and informative organization, to the location and accompanying food (La Luna, North Carlton) to the company at these events, to the sheer quality of the wines provided. Unreservedly recommend.
