TASTING MASTERCLASS

Fun Times Tasting 10 Wines

 

This is our most fun course. For you, it’s a Saturday afternoon tasting 10 benchmark wines from a certain varietal or classic wine region. Our Tasting Masterclasses always begin with a presentation of the featured grape variety or wine region by our expert instructors, providing valuable background knowledge before the tutored tasting begins.

Whether you are a casual wine drinker who fancies a fun afternoon out tasting, learning, and laughing, or the more serious student looking for a chance to really focus on a grape or region, this event is for you. Prices start at $199. You will taste 10 wines worth more than $1000, whilst being entertained and educated by our expert instructors.

Don't forget: when you register for an in-person course, you receive a FREE Fine Vintage online course (value of $99-299 depending on the course) plus FREE access to our extensive video library.

COURSE OVERVIEW

Our Masterclasses start at 2:00pm and end at 5:30pm. The last half hour is a social where you taste a beautiful sparkling wine and get to mingle with your fellow wine lovers.
