09 January 2019 • Advanced Wine Class

This was a complete surprise. I was expecting a "closed door" attitude where people might judge me for being a wine rookie. But even in the advanced class the instructor was gracious and patient (although the class skips along at a decent pace so DON'T drift off into a little wine dream, leave that for later, ha!) The instructor, Matthew, is that rare kind of person who shares their knowledge but also makes time to listen to everyone at the table. I was really charmed by how he made time for everyone to share their thoughts. It was a Pinot Noir night and I was lucky enough to sit next to David from the Prince Albert Winery so yeah, there's a chance to mingle with some real rockstars of the wine industry too. A total pleasure and I've already booked into a February 2018 class to try some Cabernet Sauvignon. Five stars, for sure. Five freaking gold stars.

Matthew is a knowledgeable and courteous host. His wine appreciation courses, dinners and vertical tastings are always informative, valuable and most importantly - they're hosted in a warm friendly atmosphere. I never profess to being a wine expert, and in Matthew's environment I never feel like i'm being 'wine snobbed.' I'd recommend his classes to anyone from beginning to appreciate or learn more about wine, to those with a sophisticated taste. His wines are exceptional, rare, and delicious!

Really fantastic class. The format is very casual and, even if your wine knowledge is not as extensive as others in the group, Matthew goes out of his way to make you feel very much included. Fantastic wines too.
