    What you'll learn

    An interactive introduction to the magical world of wines with some of the most experienced and talented wine educators in London, in Berry Bros & Rudd's historic Pickering Cellar!

    In this class

    To begin you will be focusing in on the factors that influence the balance of wine, learning about acidity, aroma, flavour and alcohol. In addition you will experience how to depict wine, as well as spotting levels of oak influence and ageing. In the following five sessions you will apply your newly gained knowledge and appreciation for the fine notes and base tastes, examining three or four different grape varieties and contrasting key examples from Europe and the New World.

    The foundation of this course is to allow you to reconnoiter and employ your natural tasting ability whilst applying your observations to facts about the provenance of the wines. Throughout the course you will tackle a diverse variety of questions and aim to challenge common myths about wine - and most importantly heighten your confidence in tasting.

    Over six Tuesday evenings you will be inducted into the delicious and extraordinary world of grapes and wine.
