Amazing! Loved it. The demonstrator was very knowledgeable and great fun. We learned how to taste wine properly, and also learned lots about the different wine regions of France. The bread and meat/cheese platters went well with the wine. A great evening!

This experience was really enjoyable and informative - I have been practising some techniques since the session. The atmosphere was intimate and friendly, and I may have had too much wine. I would recommend the cheese platter for the session.
