Online 4 week Meet The Maker Tasting
Have you missed your holiday this year?
Fancy a virtual trip to a vineyard to taste the wines with the people who made them?
A rare and unique opportunity to meet the wine makers, ask your questions, find out a little bit more about how the wine was made, what makes it so special, and in their own words hear why they love making their wines.
We really enjoy these events; we always learn something new and of course get to taste some delicious wines!
So, during October we are transporting you to the vineyards of four different wine makers in the New World – Argentina, Australia, Chile, then South Africa.
We’d love you to join us as we bring together our friends and colleagues from other wine schools across the country on Friday night to spend an evening in the company of some of the New World's most illustrious and influential winemakers.

It's a mouth-watering line-up from our suppliers at Great Wine, join us with glasses full and questions at the ready! Our online wine tastings are the perfect way to indulge your passion for wine, learn and taste with the pros, all from the comfort and safety of your own sofa! Whilst socialising 'in real life' can be stressful and quite uncertain, our online tastings mean you can enjoy all the usual wine school fun, in a bubble, without leaving your home.
How does it work?
The price of the tasting buys you a “seat at our table” for all 4 weeks – we’ll send you a Zoom link so you can join our online wine event.
We’ll taste the wines with the wine maker and we’ll hear about the wine, how it was made, what makes it special, what’s happening in the vineyard/country at the moment, anything of interest and there is an opportunity to ask questions like "what food would you pair with this wine", "how important are the soils in your vineyard", "what impact has climate change had on you", the choice is yours.
The wine for the tasting is NOT included in this price, the wine can be purchased separately from our online wine tasting partners Great Wine Co. You'll be sent a link to buy the wines for the course, you will have the choice of which wines to purchase. You don't need to buy all the wines for each week, but if you buy all 12 the cost is discounted to £150.00!
