This zoom wine class is a much needed silver lining to the lockdown. I enjoyed both the wine and the company. Looking forward to the next time!

The online wine appreciation sessions are just sensational ! The sessions have become a necessary therapy for dealing with 'lockdown' blues. Curated by the wonderful Matthew, our fabulous group come together to talk about and enjoy a delightful varietal and reminisce about the week that was ! Just a pleasure !! POD
