Saturday CHRISTMAS Intro to Wine

Saturday CHRISTMAS Intro to Wine

SOLVE CHRISTMAS!  Join us for a fun wine tasting journey tasting at least 13 wines from around the world (and discovering which pairs best with the Christmas meal).

INCLUDES SABRAGE DEMONSTRATION! 11am to 4pm, with 2 course lunch & Champagne.

Our Saturday courses are held inside the beautiful Jesus college. Founded in 1496, some of the buildings date from the 12th century when it was a nunnery (the chapel is the oldest Cambridge University building still in use).

At this central Cambridge venue we'll enjoy tasting and learning about wine in a lovely wood-panelled room overlooking the West Court and gardens.

Halfway through the day we take a break from the hard work of wine tasting to enjoy a delicious lunch in a dining room with beamed ceilings, fireplace and chandeliers.
