Saturday Wine Tasting with Champagne and Lunch For One
Plenty of wine no whining!
A great gift for anyone even slightly interested in wine. A perfect day out on a whistle stop tour of the wine world. A perfectly pitched presentation that was both fun & entertaining in a relaxed atmosphere. Dispelled all the snobbery associated with this activity & at the end of the day we had even learned quite a bit about wine tasting! Definitely not for tee-totallers!

Saturday Wine Tasting with Ian Bentley
I would like to say that the Saturday Wine Tasting (May 18th) was a great experience for me. I have been drinking wine for decades but I have always thought of wine 'expertise' as a load of pompous waffle. However, the East London Wine School course not only gave me useful knowledge but also made me appreciate wine in a new way. The way Ian Bentley ran the course and helped us all appreciate both the simple aspects of wine appreciation and some of the behind the scenes facts of different wines made the day both enjoyable and benefitial. Overall I felt as if I had had a one-to-one session and arrived back home with my new wine knowledge bubbling out of me (much to the pleasure and eventual annoyance of the family!).

Really good value for money
The course instructor was excellent. We were given a lot of information about wine origins, types of grapes and flavours. Every question was answered to our complete satisfaction. We tasted a total of 12 different wines and were instructed what to look for in colour and taste. We enjoyed it so much that we would like to make another date to taste wines from other regions.

Best way of spending a wet Saturday in February
An excellent day hosted by Laura from Yorkshire Wine School. Laura was both passionate and knowledgable and created a really relaxed atmosphere. The Hotel Du Vin in York was the perfect setting, and the included two course lunch was excellent offering three choices for both starter and main. Booking via buyagift also meant we received two bottles of wine from the ones tasted, which was really welcome.
We extended our day out by spending the evening at the hotel and eating in their excellent resturant in the evening where we received a 20% discount on food and of course wine!
That good we would consider do it all over again!
