Learning to better understand wine- what it is, how it works, where it comes from, why it tastes the way it does, and how it best matches with foods- can enhance our enjoyment of all types of wines. Acquiring knowledge about wine is useful, not to mention the number of laws relating to its production, wine seem to be a pretty daunting topic for a beginner – which is why we are here to help!
Even if you don't aspire to work in the spirits industry, if you love Scotch or Bourbon or any other whisky for that matter, an education in their complexities will enhance your enjoyment of these intriguing beverages. Sometimes you have to know the charm of something before you can taste it. Only education will reveal what you're missing.
There's no denying it – gin is in! Gin has seen a huge surge in popularity over the last few years, with a proliferation of new craft distilleries, unique and premium blends and international interpretations making it a very exciting market. Whether you work in hospitality or in the wine and spirit industry and would like to increase your professional skills – or you simply love gin – this programme is for you!
Selling or serving any beverage without having a properly trained staff can be really frustrating, especially for your guests. And training staff on the wine list and other beverage can be extra difficult because there can be a lot of items, many details to know and it changes all the time.
Our relaxed but informative tutored wine tastings are a great way to learn more about a specific wine region, grape variety, wine style or more! These events are all hosted by a friendly expert – whether a buyer, winemaker or member of the Tastings team – to help take you through the wines.
