Wine Classes

We know you love wine and want to learn more but finding a place to start can be hard. Here at the Wine Emporium we have put together a fantastic range of classes to suit all tastes and levels of knowledge. From our wine appreciation class which gives you the building blocks of wine knowledge, to more specialised classes focusing on regions and styles from around the world.

'That was a seriously excellent presentation. I learned so much - and you covered an incredible amount of information in a really interesting and engaging way.'

What others had to say...


'The wines you selected and the sequence in the presentation of them was superb. It really helped us all discern between the different regions. I would commend your course to anyone remotely interested in wine. So thank you again.'

'My friends and I recently attended your two day wine appreciation course. I just wanted to say what a lovely time we all had. You're clearly very knowledgable and it was really interesting listening to you speak about wine.'

'We had a great time at the Burgundy nights...Your knowledge of the area and the wines is incredible!'

'Felt the mix of wines, villages v premier cru v grand cru were really good in illustratrating both village and quality differences, and also differences in the winemakers. Most importantly, it was delivered in a very informative but non-intimidating manner. Really approachable, which is where many get it wrong, and also very involved, encouraging people to engage. Very good, and great value.'
