NEW - 4 Week Festive Favourites - Perfect wines for Christmas! 

This four week festive favourites master class takes away the fear from your Christmas wine shopping. Each week we will focus on a particular aspect of Christmas entertaining; festive fizz, winter whites, robust reds and celebration stickies recommending great value, readily available, interesting wines to wow your Christmas guests.

We are particularly proud to be hosting this year a wine tasting dinner at Jesmond Dene House with celebrity wine guru Oz Clarke click here for details.. 

The courses and tastings focus on enjoying wine and learning about it in a relaxed setting, with friendly people. Meet new friends who share your love of wine. The courses suit all levels of knowledge and experience, starting with the introductory 8-week World of Wine Course (have to miss an evening or two - no problem - catch the next course - they run continuously through the year!). Whilst the 4-week Short Courses look at a country, region or grape variety  in more depth, and our Saturday Introduction course is a great way of immersing yourself in the subject through a leisurely tasting of over 12 delicious wines with Champagne and a delicious restaurant lunch.

One-Evening Tastings provide the opportunity to try a tasting with no previous experience. Its also a great way to meet people who share your passion for wine - do try one - we are sure you will enjoy it! All our Tastings & Courses are also available as Gift Vouchers for the perfect Gift.

 We also run WSET Courses in Newcastle for enthusiasts & the wine trade - including WSET Level 2 & WSET Level 3 Newcastle.
