About The Course
Our General Wine Course class is the perfect starting point for anybody who is interested in wine and would like to learn more about it. The aim is to provide you with a solid foundation on which to build and develop your wine education. Once equipped with the basics you will discover that your enjoyment of drinking wine is enhanced and your learning experience at future classes or tastings is all the better for it.
During the class you will sample 1 sparkling wine, 3 white wines and 3 red wines. As we taste our way through them we will explore what wine is and those important factors that affect its overall taste – including grape varieties, the geography and climate of a vineyard and the decisions made by a winery during the winemaking process. How do these wines make us feel on a personal level? Do some excite the palate more than others?
We have a friendly environment at all our courses and welcome people of all levels of wine knowledge to each course.
What’s included in this course:
- Your very own qualified wine tutor
- A minimum of 6 fantastic wines appropriate for the course
- Course notes
- A venue with great ambience.
- A fun time
The Minor Details
- Due to the nature of wine tasting and Melbourne Wine Course’s relaxed nature, we don’t run military precise courses, rather we have an organic course where you can ask 1001 questions to the tutor – we make everyone feel welcome regardless of wine knowledge.
- Our price includes everything – room hire, notes, professional tutor and wine! All you have to do is bring yourself.
- Drinking wine by yourself can be harmful to your social skills, so we don’t run our courses unless 4 or more people are booked. We’ll give you 48 hours notice if we cancel. We should point out that we are yet to cancel a course!.
- Due to popularity, Melbourne Wine Courses are in high demand, so please ensure you book early to avoid dissappointment.
Headquaters: European Wine Store, 2 Wynyard Street, South Melbourne.
If you have a booking for 6 people or more, we may be able to arrange a venue of your choosing in the CBD or inner Melbourne.
