For up and coming aficionados, this Saturday wine tasting session based in historic Cheltenham is a great way to pick up lots of great skills in a relaxed group environment. Begin with an introductory talk which covers a host of topics such as grape varieties, different wine producing regions, new world wines and the production process. Then comes the main event - taste an eclectic selection of 13 different reds and whites under the expert tuition of a resident sommelier and learn to appreciate the subtle tones, notes and flavours in each different wine. During the day, sit down to a succulent two-course meal and a glass of champagne to talk about all things wine related. Also, take away wine tasting guide book to sharpen up those skills at home.
