Matthews virtual wine tasting classes are informative and fun. It has been great to taste all different varietals of wine over the last few months and converse with others right around the world.

Matthew's knowledge is gently made available to the participants as he talks about his passion for, or reservations about, the wine whilst encouraging each person to share too. Always a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon class of a small group. Relaxed and fun. Thanks to Matthew and to the group too. Joanne

This was an impressive Masterclass, which educated and entertained. The vendor ensured that every participant had the opportunity to speak. The collective knowledge of the participants was effectively drawn out. Thoroughly enjoyable.
