Evening Tastings from £25

Our One Evening Wine Tastings provide the opportunity to try a tasting with no previous experience. It's also a great way to meet people who share your enjoyment of wine. The types of evenings available is varied and always changing, from Introductory Courses to Fine Wine Events - with plenty to choose from there is always something new to try. 

At the Hampshire Wine School, we teach - not only about wine - but also about sparkling wine, champagne, beer, whisky, gin & tonic! We also specialise in food & wine pairing tastings, where you can learn to match all types of food with their perfect wine!

     Your tutor, Cecile Bergart, is a published Champagne and Wine Educator, a guest champagne expert for Champagne World Magazine, for Channel 4 'Superscrimpers', a regular guest speaker on BBC Radio Solent, as well as being an approved staff educator for Marks and Spencer. Trust us when we say that you will be in good hands!

"I was incredibly impressed by how much I learned, but also how enjoyable and interesting you made the whole experience. My family and I often still mention you when we’re sharing a bottle of wine over dinner and we start sentences with “Cecile told us…” so firstly thank you for such a wonderful day and providing knowledge that has stuck with us and improved our understanding and appreciation of wine." (Wendy B)

WHERE?

By the end of the evening you will have learnt:

  • How to taste wine like a professional
  • How to identify aromas and flavours in wine
  • About the influence of climate and weather on wine
  • How different components such as acidity and alcohol form the building blocks of wine
  • What influence oak and other wine-making techniques have on the wine in your glass
  • About the principles of food and wine matching
  • How to choose wine with confidence: we discuss how to interpret wine labels

These evenings make original and interesting gifts! You can purchase a place on any course as a Gift Voucher or you can buy an open Gift Voucher and let them choose an event at their leisure- our Vouchers have no expiry date!

The price for all the one evening wine tastings includes a minimum of six wines, tasting notes on the selected wines, a tutored tasting and course materials and a PowerPoint presentation. Professional ISO tasting glasses are also provided.

Prices quoted are per person.
