We are pleased to announce that our first ever Winter Wine Course will begin in January, and bookings are now being taken! It’s the perfect motivator to get you out of the house on a dark winters night, and would also make an excellent Christmas present for the wine lover in your life…
Jon will guide participants through five weeks of tasting, in a programme which promises something completely different to the usual dry (no pun intended!) format.
Jon explained: “Wine courses often follow strict formats where you learn about ‘how things should be done’ in the world of wine; you get lectured about grape varieties, and taught to recognise ‘typical examples’ of a certain region.”
This course will set out to break the mould, as Jon explains: “I want to introduce people to emerging trends in wine-making right now, and the people and places who are forging ahead with exciting approaches and styles.”
The course begins on 31st January with an introduction on tasting wine and food matching; all the sessions will include a selection of light bites from the Scarlet Wines kitchen to accompany Jon’s selection of wines.
Four further Wednesday evening sessions will follow; the full course content is yet to be finalised but Jon’s working themes include Stars Of The Southern Rhone, Eastern Europe’s Reawakening, Spain’s Cutting Edge and Oak In Wine: The Devil In The Detail.
The price for the complete course is £150 (including all wines and refreshments) and spaces are limited.
