17 August 2018 • Pinot Noir from around the World

I attended the Cloudwine Old and New World Pinot Noir wine course in May 2015 with my mum who was visiting from Perth. The class is for wine lovers and those who want to learn more about the wine they love to drink. The reason why I'd recommend these classes is that it allows you to try a variety of overseas wines and local wines of the same varietal and saves you buying 8 bottles of pinot (although once you've tried them you might wish to purchase one of each bottle at the wine shop!) The class can be done as a single, couple, group of friends etc people are very friendly and the class is small so it is not too overwhelming for the introverts and you have the opportunity to ask questions. I would definitely go back again.

We had a group of 9 people for a Pinot Noir night. Zoe was the host and she was professional, knowledgeable & entertaining and the room was perfect for the event. We explored 7 wines over 90 minutes. It was a fantastic night.

One of the Best Wine Nights I’ve had! I wanted to sample Australian wine and heard good things about Melbourne Wine Courses, so decided to give it a go. First of all, the staff were amazing. It’s always a little daunting as a single traveller, Russell made me feel so relaxed. We tried 7 Australian wines, each from different regions around Australia. Each wine was amazing and the little background about each wine gave me a good insight as to why these wines were selected on the night. If you want to have an amazing experience you should choose Melbourne Wine Courses. Thanks Russell.
