As a complete wine novice i was a little aprehensive that it would be fairly pretentious. My fears were allayed immediately, we were made to feel very welcome, the event was relaxed, fun and informative. I dont think anybody wanted to leave! highly recommended.

The course was just the right length and perfectly balanced between the drinking and learning. Ian is very knowledgeable and passionate about wine so he was able to make it very interesting. Great value and I will be looking into other courses available

From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
