LAST FEW PLACES'New Spain' tutored tasting
Thursday 26 March 7 to 9 pm - £27.50
"We'll taste and talk about classic reds from, for example, Rioja and Ribeira del Duero and also venture into lesser-known territory like (real) Sherry country, Galicia for whites and Catalonia, including some very good Cava no doubt!"

NEW! Organic & 'natural' wines tutored tasting
Thursday April 30, 7-9 pm - £27.50
"What exactly is organic wine - wine made without 'chemicals' or is that just a myth? And what's the difference between organic, biodynamic and 'natural' wine? And does it mean it's better? We'll explore these ideas while tasting and talking about a selection of organic wine styles picked from around the world..."

Essential Wine Tasting 5-week course - £125 for 5 sessions
New dates: Thursday evenings 14/05/15 to 11/06/15.

'New World Wines' Saturday workshop - 6 June 2015
£90 including 2-course lunch
"What do we mean by 'New World' wines? We'll spend the day tasting and talking about a dozen or so classic styles, red white and rosé, mostly from wine producing countries in the Southern Hemisphere such as Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina and South Africa; as well as choice examples from North America... Showing that 'New World' is, apart from its patronising colonial tone, just as much about attitude perhaps as it is about location and climate. And then what about certain New World producers in cooler regions, who are deliberately trying to make more 'European' wine styles?! The day will be nicely broken up by lunch at the hotel..."
