If you want to become as comfortable reading a wine list as you are with the food menu, this is exactly what you've been looking for.
Our Understanding Wine subscription gives you the knowledge & lingo you need to buy the right bottle of wine for every occasion. And the best bit is - you won't even feel like you're learning.
You'll be sitting back on the sofa, drinking incredible wines & watching lovely people explain them - and before you know it you'll be the one who offers to pick the wine in a restaurant.
How does it work?
Each month you'll receive 6 x tasters of incredible winesalongside video tastings from some of the country's top sommeliers. They'll guide you through the wines from the comfort of your home. All you need to do is decide whether you want regular (best for one person) or large (perfect for two) and we'll sort the rest.
What do I learn?
With each lesson there will be a focus on a different grape, region or style of wine. After your first 6 months:
- Be able to taste wine like a pro. How to break down the smells, flavours & structure, and know how this changes from wine to wine.
- Have the vocabulary to explain different wine characteristics and be able to describe exactly what you do and don’t like in a wine.
- Try 36 different wines, covering most of the common grapes, regions and styles - and some more obscure ones too.
- Food & wine pairing will be a breeze, you'll elevate your dinner parties, meals out and even nights in. Avoiding costly mistakes & unpleasant mismatches.
- Reading a wine list or strolling into a wine shop will become an enjoyable experience. You'll know all the right questions to ask to get the best value.
Anything else I should know?
All the videos are pre-recorded and the wines stay fresh for 4 weeks so you can do each lesson at a time that's convenient for you.
You'll pay monthly - and if it's not for you, you're free to cancel at any time. No strings attached.
Once you're done with the 6 months Understanding Wine course, the fun really starts. You'll roll onto our Discover Wine - each month you'll discover new wines, new regions and will meet some exciting wine producers and wine lovers.
