Rated 5 out of 5 by Pange Such a fun night!
The wine course run by Ben was so enjoyable, the two hours just flew by and I really felt like I learnt a lot about wines! I would highly recommend this course to others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatnight Great, informative and interactive night!
Ben does a great job presenting some of the subtleties and characteristics of what make wine varieties unique. If you are after a night that you can have the tough questions answered or are after a fun, relaxing night without the technical 'wine talk' as well this is for you.
Well worth the night out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pete67 Expected more
Whilst Ben was interesting and had a great knowledge I was disappointed with the overall experience. There were a couple of interesting wines, but I was expecting more diversity. It also started slightly late but finished on time and it felt rushed. Would have paid more for some food or some more bread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LA34 a very entertaining way to learn about wine whilst drinkong it :-)
Had this experience as a night out with my wife and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ben is certainly very knowledgeable and know all the facts. But he certainly know what/how to communicate, in order to deliver information without boring or overloading you. In fact it is the opposite, as he manages to do so in an engaging and entertaining way. Definitely recommend, even if you are going on your own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emma02 I will rave about this experience for years to come!
As a wine appreciation amateur I came away from this two our master class with a real appreciation for wine!
The deliberate decision to sample Australian wines was a nice start, and as we moved through the whites and reds the colour, taste and fragrance was captured with every sip [and spit]
The journey and methods of wine production, the regions and the history completed a really pleasant experience.
Now I understand what I like and what I don't like and what to look for in the wine store [rather than just a fancy label or a reasonable price].
From today, I will hold my glass by the stem, swirl the wine to release the flavours and pause to taste. I will not put a spoon in my bottle of sparkling and I will rave about this experience for years to come!
Thanks Ben, you were the perfect host - Cheers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Raythequaffer It was a great evening sipping and chatting about wine!
Ben was great and I learned a whole lot about wine, including some weird and strange things which I now inflict on my dinner guests at every opportunity. A great night out - fun and informative.

Rated 5 out of 5 It was a great Monday night - Ben was very knowledgable yet patient with all types of questions. Having a basic knowledge of wine, we learnt a lot in 2 hours - I think even the more experienced wine drinkers in the class learnt a bit. Would definitely recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by Miriam1 Knowledgeable and engaging leadership and about a dozen great wines in 2 hours provided a wonderful experience and extensive understanding of styles.
