8 Week World Of Wine Course (Guildford)
Join us on a jaunt around the globe starting on Thursday 21st February as we visit a variety of wine-making countries, tasting everything from Chianti Classico to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. If you want an in-depth, yet broad-based, introduction to the Wonderful World of Wine then this is the course for you.
The World of Wine course runs weekly, but if you need to miss an evening you can easily pick it up when the course runs again or receive a credit against the cost of any of our other tastings or events. So don't worry if you are going on holiday or need to be away at any point.
The 8 week course is designed specifically for people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more about it. You do not need any previous experience, the emphasis is on learning by tasting different varieties of wine with friendly people. It is also a great way to meet new friends who share your love of wine.
What if I have to miss a session? We understand most people have a hectic schedule therefore the course is flexible and you can redeem missed sessions at a later date or send a subsitute. We run this course several times a year.

"We did the 8 week course and now know much more about wine than before. Jeremy, the owner, is certainly in the right job. He really knows his stuff and imparts that knowledge in a laid back, sociable and friendly way. It is very flexible - we missed three of the sessions but Jeremy is very happy for us to pick them up again on the next course he does. Very enjoyable indeed. Jan via TripAdvisor
'I loved the 8 week wine tasting course and I can highly recommend this program. The wine flows, the banter is fun and we all improve our knowledge each week. Lucynda via Tripadvisor
