Virtual 6-Week Wine Course: "Escape to the Sun!" (6 ONLINE TASTINGS)
Let's go on a virtual summer holiday!
Banish those lockdown blues and socialise safely. Get together with friends and like-minded people, and enjoy a wine tasting experience in the comfort of your own living-room. You will no longer feel like stuck at home, as I take you on a virtual summer holiday, touring the very best places in Europe for wine.
Each week we will visit a favourite holiday destination, enjoy 2 wines from that region (a white and a red) and learn a little about its people, culture, food and of course wine! I will be your private sommelier for the evening, having selected the wines and hosting the tasting via Zoom. We’ll cover how to taste wine like a Pro, explain why each wine tastes the way it does and suggest new wines that you and your partner might enjoy from those amazing areas.
To accompany the course there is a discounted tasting case of 12 carefully selected wines from the South of France (Western and Eastern sides), Spain, Italy and then its islands, as well as Portugal ... delivered free to your door!

STOP PRESS: For the time being, 2 of those wines have been extra discounted so the usual price of £136.30 for the tasting case has been therefore discounted to only £122.67 (that is only £10.22 per bottle!!!) exclusively for us and this package, delivered to your door via courier for FREE. When Great Western Wines decide to stop their extra discount on those 2 wines, the usual price of 141.85 for the tasting case will then be discounted to £127.75 (that's now £10.64 per bottle), so hurry placing your wine order in order to not miss out on their best price!
Each week will be recorded on Zoom so that if you ever miss a week, no problem you can catch up with the recording in your own time. This is the new way to enjoy wine, LIVE, interactive and all in the comfort of your own home!
So, how does it work? Click below to purchase the course (the charge of £65 is per household device and for 6 online tastings). The wines are a separate cost. There is no pressure to buy the wines, as you can still attend these fun and educational tastings without a glass of wine in hand. I simply recommend buying them as I will be tasting them in depth on the night.
I will then email you the link to my selected wine merchant so that you can purchase the accompanying tasting case yourself.
Your Zoom tasting invitation and password will be sent via e-mail at a later date.
Prepare your wines, click the Zoom invitation, relax and enjoy your online wine tasting holiday! I shall bring some much needed sunshine and laughter to us all, whilst on lockdown.
ONLY 30 CASES OF WINE AVAILABLE, SO PLEASE HURRY BOOKING YOUR TICKET!
