Why learn about wine?
- Confidence buying wine
It can be overwhelming eyeing up the wall of wine in a supermarket or wine merchants. Have you ever bought wine based on a snazzy label or solely because it was reduced from £12 to £6? We all have! How would you like to walk into a wine shop, confidently find your favorite wines, and leave 100% satisfied?
- Improve your ability to taste and smell
Anyone can learn to become a wizz-kid at smelling and tasting wine, all you need is practice. I’ve had people tell me that ‘wine just tastes like wine’ to them and they have a terrible sense of smell etc, only to find themselves saying ‘I really can smell elderflower’ only an hour into the wine tasting. It won’t be long until you are picking out ‘leather’, ‘peaches’ or ‘banana’ too. Like any other muscle this is just a skill to be honed and toned and you’ll be amazed at what you are capable of.
- Extra skills: geography & history
One of the world’s most famous wine writers, Jancis Robinson, describes wine as ‘geography in a bottle’ – so true! You will see so many maps, pictures of soil, weather diagrams that if you aren’t already a geography buff, then you soon will be! Alongside this, you also learn about history of wine regions and the culture that goes along with it.
- Feel good talking about wine
Have you ever loved a wine but had no idea how explain what you loved about it and why? The more you taste various styles and flavours, you’ll feel confident in talking about wine with anyone.
- Make friends through wine
It’s easy to make pals when you have a shared interest. These wine tasting events are designed for you to feel relaxed chatting with everyone in the room and getting to know other wine lovers like yourself.
Come by yourself, with your ma, your bestie, your partner in crime, your work peeps, whoevs. All are welcome for this great introduction to wine tasting.
