Saturday Intro to Wine with Lunch and Champagne!

Saturday Intro to Wine with Lunch and Champagne!

Our Saturday Introduction to Wine tasting course is a great way to spend the day - learning about wine in a fun and informal environment. We'll go through how to taste wine like a pro, discuss what makes a good quality wine and go through some basic guides to food and wine matching. We will taste ten wines throughout the day, starting with Champagne, followed by whites and reds, hopefully, some of which you have not tried before.

All this, plus a sumptuous two course lunch from award winning chef Michael Nadra, some examples of the menu below:


Tuna Saku With Mixed Leaves, Fennel & Heirloom Tomatoes Salad

Grilled Rib Eye Steak, Sage French Fries & Red Wine Jus 

Moujadara, Cabbage Salad, Courgette, Onion & Mint Purée, Crisp Onions & Pomegranate

Roast Beetroots, Manouri Cheese, Butternut Squash, Hazelnut, Pecan Nut & Pine Nut Dressing

Chocolate Brownie With Toasted Almonds, Vanilla Ice Cream & Chocolate Sauce

*all dietary requirements can be catered for


The day runs from 11am to 4pm - starting with a decadent Champagne aperitif!
