Introduction to Wine (FLEET)
We are pleased to bring our popular Introduction to Wine Tasting Evening to FLEET for the very first time!
If you want to get a taste of what we offer at Hampshire Wine School in just one evening then join us for an introductory look at the wonderfully diverse and quirky world of wine. It might even start you on a journey of vinous discovery! If you know what you like, but want to understand why - then this evening is for you. We will taste at least six wines from around the world and provide many pointers which will enhance your understanding and appreciation of wine. Besides, do you know of a better way to spend a Wednesday evening? ;-)
