Lesson 4 - The Sun Loving

  • D'VINE CELLARS 74 Landor Rd London, SW9 9PH United Kingdom (map)

Welcome to The Grape School! 

After the huge success of 2014's Sunday Skool, are are happy to announce a new semester of our wine classes - same style, same grapes, but with a new day and new venue!

If you've ever wanted to delve a little deeper into the world of wine but haven't found the right place, then take a look at The Grape School 6-week course!

The course will run for 6 consecutive weeks, with an essentials class in the first week, followed by 5 weeks of delving deeper into the specific grape varieties. To get the most out of the sessions we recommend attending all 6 classes*, but we understand life is busy so classes are also bookable individually if you can't make it to all.  

Classes will be held on Monday nights from 7pm to 9:30pm (please arrive at 6:45pm), and will be held in the wine cellar of D'Vine Wines in Clapham North. At each of the main classes you will taste 8 different wines, and a few nibbles to keep keep your brain working! 

* If you would like to book for the whole 6 weeks, please choose the 6-week ticket and you'll get the first intro class for free!

Enrol by purchasing tickets in our online or go to Edible Experiences.
