  • If you love wine and food ,you will love this.

    Fantastic day all round . Great knowledge, great wine and great food. Highly recommended

    Wine tasting for beginners!

    Enjoyed the experience. As a complete wine novice, it was good to learn about how the wines are made and to try different wines from all over the world. Hard going in the afternoon after the 3 course lunch, as we were all a little sleepy! Expert was very good.

  • Highly recommend

    Great day!

    A fun and educational day out

    You get to try a broad selection of wines from around the world with interesting and fun commentary. The lunch is excellent. Overall great value!

  • More than just wine tasting

    A very interesting and informative day. Very good host and location excellent. My only feedback to improve would be to offer a cheese board with the red wines as many would be better tasted with food. Otherwise a fantastic day and highly recommend this experience.

    Amazing more-than-basic introduction to the world of wines

    Me and my husband very much enjoyed this experience. It was well organised, set in beautiful hotel in Covent Garden and the wine we tested was brilliant. We have learned a lot of new details about different grapes and regions. Thank you.
