I've been coming to Matthew's tutored wine tastings for years now, enjoy them greatly, always discover something new in every class. Look forward to many more. Superb wines, excellent communication, profound knowledge and experience. Highly recommend to anyone.

Another excellent and intriguing evening with Matthew from Fine Wine Appreciation. Sublime wines on show with robust discussion in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.

We had an interesting time and great fun at the recent Bordeaux tasting.This was our first ever professionally organized event . The opinions varied enormously and there were changes to the scores after the interval's food. We came away with improved knowledge of this region's wines and how the Australian single wine compared to the others. Altogether an interesting and fun evening. Tony
