Notts Derby Wine School: 8 Week World of Wine Course


The 8-week World of Wine Course is designed as a practical introduction to the world of wine. It is structured for people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more about it in a fun and relaxed environment. You need no previous experience – the emphasis is on learning by your own experience of tasting the different varieties of wine. It is also a great way to meet new friends who share your enjoyment of wine.

This 8-week Course can also be purchased as a great gift idea- perfect for birthdays and special anniversaries!

Each week we will examine how different grape varieties, different climates and local wine-making techniques impact on the aromas and flavours of the wine. Through practice and our guidance you will learn how to identify the wine's characteristics for yourself; we show you how to taste and appraise wine like a professional. We believe that the best aide to learning about wine is the process of tasting and comparing for yourself; that is exactly what you will have the chance to do, in our relaxed and informal setting.

Please Note: There is a charge for the cost of the wine (in addition to the £95 course fee) of £10 per evening payable on the night. Great value - the cost of the course is still under £22 per evening.
