This is a Bring Your Own Wine (BYOW) Online Tasting which means you can bring along any wine you want. In short I recommend wines that trigger your curiosity. I will take you through the method I use to taste a new wine, using a simple Sensory Analysis Procedure.

Check out the Q & A tab to find answers to questions discussed during the sessions.
If you are looking for a team building activity or a private wine class, I have different formats that can be customised to suit your event – Please book a Demo call and I will tell you all about it!
