Our Wine Discovery Sessions can be held virtually or face to face in your garden*, as long as social distancing rules are adhered to.
Explore some of the great grapes of the world. Be amazed at how they change as they grow in different geographies, soils and climates. Learn how producers can alter the smallest elements in the production process and have a profound effect on the final wines.
