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
  Saturday, Sunday, Monday, ‘long weekend(s)’ in May


From January 2018 all events will take place at C-Space, 37-45 City Road, London EC1Y 1AT. This is immediately opposite the Bunhill Cemetery and Zebra Crossing, and right next to Wesley’s Chapel. A 3 minute walk from Old Street Tube, 7 minutes from Moorgate or Liverpool Street, and on numerous bus routes: 43, 76, 121, 141, 177 etc. There is a google map on each event page.

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.
