I run three categories of tasting:
Evening Courses
Beginners, & Fine Wine: once a week for six weeks
Single Evening Tastings
Occasional individual one-off events across the year
Master of Wine Blind Tasting Weekend
A Saturday, Sunday, Monday, ‘long weekend’ in May


All events take place at 19-21 Hatton Garden, EC1N 8BA, except for the Master of Wine Blind Tastings, which are held at the new Institute of Master of Wine premises in Vauxhall, London

Tasting courses


Beginners course

This course is based on the 9 tastings detailed in the last section of my book. Three courses a year: winter, summer, autumn.


Fine Wine Course

The Fine Wine Course is based on The Classic Wines and Wine Regions of France. Once a year in Feb/Mar.


Master of Wine Blind Wine Tastings

I run a Master of Wine Blind Tasting Seminar over a long weekend, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, once a year in May.

Single Evening Tastings


Single Evening Tastings

I run these occasional tastings throughout the year. They are opportunities to explore a vintage, a property, a type of wine, a country’s style, a dinner party line up with nibbles… and so on.  We generally taste the wines in pairs, and I give background information plus commentary, and ask for your feedback.
