This is how one of our students summed up the day –

J.Elder, Dartmouth

‘As a complete novice I went on this course for fun and was really surprised at how much I learned in a day. Jonathan’s and Suzie’s passion to share their knowledge is at the base of this fun filled, professionally run and educational course and I have been genuinely amazed at the change I found in appreciating my wine. A whole world of tasting fun has opened up and I truly recommend this lovely course!  And thank you for the fabulous home cooked lunch and all your care and attention to make it so unforgettable’
