| $330

Event Navigation

Our beloved Sommelier, Ronald Wortel, is leaving for Oman. Unfortunately for him, he can’t take his cellar with him.

What a dilemma!

What an opportunity I say. Let’s put on one last hurrah for Ronald!

We’ve decided to host a weekend-long, wine tasting intensive in a luxury location of natural beauty.  You’ll have the opportunity to benefit from Ronald’s vast knowledge (and personal cellar thank-you very much) before he leaves us for the land of dust and more dust.

Read on for more information and be sure to book swiftly as this event will sell out!

Event Details

Become a wine expert in just two days! Join our wine expert Ronald Wortel for a journey through the world of wine (and his personal cellar). Covering the world’s most important wine regions and grape varieties, we will taste 18 different premium wines.  We’ll also discuss the following subjects:

 - How wine is made

- How to taste like a pro

- The main factors that determine the style and quality of a wine

- The most important grape varieties and their regions

- The basics of matching food & wine

– Just what does a wine expert stockpile


The wines will be accompanied by delicious finger food, prepared by our chef supremo, Helen. 

Each day will commence at 1pm and finish around 6pm.

After this course you’ll find yourself exceedingly more confident in the wine aisle, selecting wines from a restaurant’s wine list or adding to your own personal cellar. You’ll also wish Ronald really wasn’t going!
