WORLD WINE TOUR WORKSHOP WITH A 3 COURSE LUNCH AND 16 WINES

FOR ONLY £90 PER PERSON, OR £170 FOR 2 OR MORE

The One Day World Wine Tour Workshop is a relaxed day spent immersed in fine wines, in a fun environment – suitable for anyone from beginner to enthusiast. 16 wines will be tasted throughout the day, including wines with lunch.

Those of you who have been to any of my other events will know that I am far removed from a ‘wine bore’. You will  taste 16 very fine wines, and learn a lot about wine, but in a relaxed and informal way, and have a lot of fun doing it!

Included is a 3-course lunch with matching wines, which will be very welcome after a morning of wine tasting!

Topics covered:

  • 16 Wines!
  • How to taste wine – The way the experts do
  • Old World vs New World styles
  • The major grape varieties, illustrated by fine wines from around the world
  • Why some wines cost more than others, and how to tell the difference
  • Wine and food matching
  • Blind tastings to test your new knowledge

As well as any other topics you want to ask about (as long as they are wine-related).

Your presenter Gilbert is a fully qualified WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) tutor, but he likes to have as much fun with wine as possible, so the day is not academic, but presented in an informal and humorous style. You’ll leave with a smile on your face, plus you will know a lot more about wine than when you started!

The workshop will take place at Bank Birmingham, a superb modern space on Brindley Place. The food is delightful the service impeccable! The private glass room allows privacy for the workshop, but with views onto the main restaurant and Brindley place.
