Saturday Introduction to Wine

Saturday Introduction to Wine

Come and enjoy a friendly, informal and fun wine journey. We'll taste wines from all over the world (no previous experience necessary).

At a central Cambridge venue we'll enjoy tasting and learning about wine.

Plus watch and learn how to open a bottle of Champagne by 'Sabrage' (using a sabre)!
