Don't know where to start when it comes to wine? Then join us for a relaxing evening to chat all things red, white and beyond! We'll help you learn how to taste, how to pair with food and find out exactly what you like. We know you'll leave inspired and confident to carry on your own wine journeys at home.
Our Wine Tasting Evenings are for anyone and everyone who enjoys wine! From your first sip as a beginner to deep-dives into particular grapes and growers, our interactive tasting evenings will help you discover a bit more about what goes into every bottle, and more importantly, a bit more about what you really like.
The world of wine is so huge, there are sometimes too many choices and it can be difficult to know where to start when looking at a wine list or shop display. Our team are here to help you break down those fears and learn to look at wine in a more approachable way.
You'll join us in the stunning Academy Demonstration Kitchen for an intimate tasting experience. Our team will lead you in tasting a couple of different red and white wines and explain the different flavour profiles you might find.
Our chef team are also on hand to provide some edible tasters as well - ingredients, nibbles or small dishes that enhance or contrast the wines.
You'll end with new knowledge, and possibly some new friends and fellow wine-drinkers as well!
Class starts: 6.30pm, arrive anytime from 6pm to check in at reception
Class finishes: 8pm, stay and chat to fellow guests or pop down to Street Burger for dinner
Class size: Maximum 10-12 guests (must be aged 18+)
Typical topics and tastings (exact wines, themes and dishes will vary, so we might surprise you!):
Gordon tries to visit the Academy when he can and does occasionally join us in the kitchen. Our events and dining experiences are hosted by fantastically talented chefs from the Academy and Gordon's restaurants, as well by guest chefs and experts from around the world.
Of course! If booking for six or more (or more than 10 devices for an online class), please get in touch with our Private Dining and Events team who can help create an amazing experience just for you.
If you love food and are over 16 years old (18 years old for wine tastings or cocktail making), then come along. You can book as an individual, couple or as a small group.
