Wine 101, the next level…

If you love wine and want to know a little more, here’s your chance in April this year – bookings have just opened now online, the details of which are below.

Here’s the skinny on the course – I began Wine 101 at Regional Wines & Spirits in Wellington last year and now we’re taking it to the next level this year – 2017.

The course is run over three nights – a night of white wine, a night of red wines and the final devoted to sparkling and fortified wines of the world. All wines come from all over the world.

We will share the good, the great and the unusual wines of the world – from Champagne, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc to Merlot, Nero d’Avola and Verdicchio, explaining a little wine history, clearing up lots of wine mystery and teaching you to train your mind and mouth to identify flavours – the way that exercise trains the body.

Bookings are essential for 3 evenings of fun, facts and delicious flavours at Regional Wines & Spirits tasting calendar 2017…

Wine 101 – the next level 

Thursday 13, 21 & 28 April, 2017

Last year I launched Wine 101 at Regional Wines to two packed out courses; this year we are upping the ante and taking these tastings to the next level. If you enjoyed learning about Syrah and Saint-Joseph AC in France, about Malbec from $12 to $40 and about the best Sauvignon Blancs in the Southern Hemisphere, come and check out the new range of wines we will highlight in this three night course.

Three nights at $40 a pop is outstanding value for money to taste over $1000 of wine all up, to learn how to pick up the clues that red wine colour offers in terms of its most likely origin and to understand how to  choose between the good, the great and the wines that wow you the most.

More tastings will be scheduled as the year rolls on. We look forward to seeing you at these starters.
